A Winters Garden

When night comes on with song and tale we pass the wintry hours;
By keeping up a cheerful heart we hope for better days.

We tend the cattle, sow the seed,
give work unto the ploughers,
With patience wait till winter yields before the sun's fair rays.

And so the world goes round and round,
and every time and season
With pleasure and with profit crowns the passage of the year,

And so through every time of life,
to him who acts with reason,
The beauty of all things doth appear.

Lyrics by: Loreena McKinnett

Beautiful. Lovely pictures of your winter gardens along with lovely words. Seems you've been up to the same as me...tiptoeing gently in the quiet beauty of winter.

How very lovely you wove that poem with the photos! I like it. I finally have a day off today. I'm going to my hairdresser later today but that's all that's scheduled except laundry...lots of laundry...
We fly back to Long Beach tomorrow.
