After an unseasonably warm fall, the first bit of winter cold has made its way to the Washington area. Although daytime temperatures are still in the mid 50s F, the mercury is dipping below freezing overnight, leaving a glaze of frost on windshields, porch railings, and lampposts as well as delicately edging shrubs and ground covers.
The neighbors have begun to decorate with ribbons, bows, lights, and bells, and I will be sure to post some of the prettiest (as well as the tackiest!) in the weeks ahead. This morning this little snowflake ornament seems most appropriate. Bundle up!
