More February Snow
Inside, I care for my Valentine's Day azalea watching the snowy light dance on it's tender petals.
Outside, flakes of white drift silently down to our part of the world.
Boys play in snow and a group of kids meet at the city park for a massive snowball fight. Oh the delights of youth! I am taking pictures, participating by observing, but my kid-like heart wants to get in the mix. The snow is perfect powder. Ripe for snowballs. A contest begins. Who can make the largest snowball? I see so much more happening......youthful minds begin to create, experience, grow.....work together. Before long, four large frozen masses emerge and laughing young adults struggle to push and roll. More join in. Heaving. Working. Play becomes work and no one seemed to mind. They just jumped in and helped. Coming together. In fun. In work. In life. In joy.
Faithful dog, who guards our home. Seems happy to run in snow. Resting in the trail he walks on daily security checks.
The pattern of the days delightfully altered by a white blanket.
