Today marks ¼ of the daily blog year completed! It hasn’t always been easy, but there are a few gems that I am especially happy to have recorded. That reminds me of my sunrise year. I had to trudge out there all of the drear mornings in order to ensure that I’d be present for those exquisite, rare, breathtaking dawns.
To celebrate my one-fourth of a year, I’ll highlight four of nature’s random gifts: a spray of red berries on a sunshiny autumn morning; an H-shaped patch of frosted grass, created in the shadow of a split rail fence; two chickadees, sharply dressed, singing and flittering around the bare branches of a tree; geometric frost patterns, glittering on pond ice.
If we ever lack for design ideas, there are infinite inspirations right outside.
