Quotography: Winter


“Nature looks dead in winter 
her life is gathered into her heart.  
She withers the plant down to the root 
that she may grow it up again fairer and stronger.  
She calls her family together within her inmost home 
to prepare them for being scattered abroad 
upon the face of the earth.”
~Hugh Macmillan, "Rejuvenescence," 
The Ministry of Nature, 1871~

I love your photos. they're so pretty-when snow is pretty, I love it, when it goes on and on and on and on, not so much. lol

...She calls her family together within her inmost home
to prepare them for being scattered abroad...
This hits especially close to home since all my children and grandbabykins were all gathered together under one roof for the holidays. It's hard to comprehend that nature is still quite alive and well even in the coldest of winters.
