It was a glorious time in the woods this cold morning.
One of my favorite trees, the American Hornbeam, showed off its snowy-apparel.
It's easy to understand why this tree is also known as Musclewood!
The sun lit countless mesmerizing snow-sparkles everywhere I looked. It also made it feel a little warmer than yesterday, even though it wasn't.
A little sprout-being peeked out to see who was visiting,.
Curious ice-smiles and stone-faces appeared through the frosty stream.
And nearby a squirrel snow-art display on a fallen tree. Message: Step into the beauty of the season. Step into your heart and love for nature. Magic, love and light await you.
