The Stark Beauty of Early December

Winter is not my favorite season. The short days, the dip in temperatures and most of all the lack of sunlight gets to me. Nature begins its nap in early December not to awaken until the spring thaw comes. As I look out of the window, I see that the oaks and the maples have shed their leaves revealing the stark beauty of the branches underneath. Without the leaves to obstruct the view, I can see the distant mountains that surround me. The grass is still green in patches and there is no snow yet and there are some remnants of withered brown leaves still left on trees.

Snow day

We got snow, again, the snow from Saturday is still on the ground and it has been snowing since the morning and its not even officially winter yet!  View from my window, yesterday.  Now there is even more snow.  Better take the snowline if you don’t want to drive.

Shortest Days of the Year

  The days are short and getting shorter, all around me nature is getting ready to take a good long nap till spring.  The grass outside my window is various shades of brown with some patches green, fighting valiantly to stay alive.  Most of the birds are gone and so are the leaves.   The stark beauty of the exposed branches reveal the shape of the tree and the grey mountains beyond.  I don’t mind the cold as long as I can at least have the sun.  That’s what keeps me going in January.   Through the tail end of November and most of December though, all I want to do is hibernate, especially when it is raining.

I can has sunshine?
