The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event. You go to bed in one kind of a world and wake up in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment then where is it to be found? – J.B. Priestley
This photo was taken in the woods not far from my home. I’m not sure what this moss-like ground cover is, but it looked as if it had been meticulously planted and tended where it lay on the barren, leaf-strewn ground. I posted some pictures that I took last weekend here — I was excited to find such diverse beauty in the woods, even at this less-than-friendly time of year.
