It should come to no great shock to anyone who reads The Marmelade Gypsy that my relationship to winter -- despite the smile on my face here when I was too young to know better -- is less than friendly.
But since there's not much else to post about this week, I'll share with you a few of my favorite winter shots over the years.
I won't say the light isn't lovely.
Nor will I say our MSU campus isn't beautiful in the snow.
Winter is not totally without color.
Nor is it without beauty.
Long before we built our porch onto the front of the cottage, it was like looking at Siberia when looking out the front onto the lake.
Even Rick doesn't ride when the snow gets deep.
Even the sheep look cold -- and at least they have a wool coat.
Cows aren't so lucky.
And while the cardinals make a nice contrast, I can't help but think they'd prefer something a little warmer.
So, if you live somewhere warm, rejoice. Really.
This winter thing is beautiful -- but it's not what it's cracked up to be!
