The ice grows over time as layers of mist freezes turning Niagara Falls Ontario into a winter wonderland.
“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”
― Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass
From the photo that generated the most reactions on your blog to the one that has the deepest emotional pull on you, define “favorite” in whatever way works best for you. Your chosen image doesn’t have to be one you’ve already shared in a previous Photo Challenge. Anything goes, as long as it’s a photo from 2017. If you want to share several images, that’s fine too — a “best of 2017” gallery could be fun if you can’t settle on one photo.
The photo that received the most attention was a little visitor to my garden.
I do love this visiting bee, but it’s not my favourite moment/photo from 2017.
Perhaps this photo… I definitely am tickled pink with it. (giggle) And it was a wonderful day just hanging out taking photos with my daughter.
But I think my favourite photo of 2017 would be one of my winter ones. I took these photos while out walking. I’m proud that this past year I continued with doing things such as walking in the cold, to work towards a healthier me.
Thank you for visiting. I wish you and yours a wonderful holiday season and that 2018 is full of kindness & gratefulness.
I also spent time in between shoveling crocheting and reading. Much warmer, cozier ways to find quiet and peace. The blanket I worked on was made from soft cotton. I love making blankets..as they get longer I get warmer 😉 The colours of this blanket brought me such joy… so bright; so full of the promise that Spring will be here soon.
I don’t get enough time to read anymore. So it was lovely to spend some time reading this month. I revisited one all time favourite and enjoyed a new favourite. Books are, “Books are a uniquely portable magic.”, as Stephen King has said. I love that I can snuggle up with a blanket, a tea and my cat then travel to a world that the words like ‘alohomora’ can unlock. I can take that same magic in my purse and enjoy it anywhere.
I’d love to hear about the hygge in your corner of the world. What comforts have brought you joy over this past month?
Hygge translates roughly to ‘cosiness’. “In essence, hygge means creating a warm atmosphere and enjoying the good things in life with good people. The warm glow of candlelight is hygge. Friends and family – that’s hygge too.” [source: visitdenmark.com/hygge]
I believe in process. I believe in four seasons. I believe that winter’s tough, but spring’s coming. I believe that there’s a growing season. And I think that you realize that in life, you grow. You get better. ~ Steve Southerland
In the Niagara Region we got a blast of winter weather late in the season.
