Mother Nature's Frosting: The Beauty of Winter

Aaron Burden snow on pie tree Up

In Winter there is both opportunity to reflect and play. While the snow hides the ugly it too blankets the beautiful. As with animals, each snow flake is a unique expression of the gift of nature. Dogs and (some ) cats love the snow too. Please remember to 1. bundle them up before going out, 2. remove snow from their paws and coats. 3. If you are walking in a winter wonderland of urban areas be cautious of anti freeze and frost bite on paws. 4. Look out for the Neighborhood Pet. 5. report any dog left outside in the cold which you deem to be in danger. 6. Remember to feed the birds - most fly south for the winter, but some do not migrate and remain in range all year long and may rely on you for food and water during the winter months. It may be cold outside but in our hearts it's spring:).

“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
