It’s still quite snowy here. It’s a balmy 30 degrees today and slush is everywhere. Really has me hankering for spring, but alas, it’s early to be thinking those thoughts. Instead, I’m becoming focused. Checking out snowflakes in detail, mushy wet tree bark, glistening icicles, and drops of water making the slow climb down various windowpanes. Things slow down for me in the winter. I notice more. Which is all a very long way to introduce the topic of my post today–nature studies in stitch. Not all wintery. But all meditations. Enjoy!

These trees are stunning, and I can’t find the origin. Anybody know?
