Saturday I noticed that ice was forming on our pond. It's so dark when I arrive home I hadn't noticed it forming. This little stream also feeds into the lower pond and you can see the ice forming around the rocks.
I made this arched attic windows quilt several years ago. The designer is Jacque J. Holmes. It is made with black and white fabrics only. I call it "A Winter's View", it was challenging to make but I like the effect a lot.
Here is my current winter view. The snow started falling this afternoon and is gradually accumulating in our courtyard. Our walks have all been salted.
The beauty berry looks delicate in the snow.
The new shoots are already forming for next year.
Definitely a glimpse of more to come. It is quite cold and blustery along the river's edge.
