Glittering Trees

All the trees in our neighborhood are crusted with ice that glitters in the sun. This one was calling softly to me from across the street. A line from Lucy Maud Montgomery's poem A Winter's Day describes it best:
A glistening splendor crowns the woods.

Winter Berries

I'm working from home today because we have a lovely winter mix of snow and freezing rain, but I couldn't resist taking a picture of these berries crusted with snow.

I've been waking up to lavender blooms every morning, which makes the weather predictions that much more bearable.
