I love trees. Not sure why, but anything tree related, whether it be paintings, dish cloths, clothes, or album covers, I am drawn to. Somehow I was able to restrain myself from putting tree shapes on every wedding detail I could, but lord knows I wanted to. I’ve always felt that winter trees got a raw deal. In general, people seem to think that they are ugly and dreary. I think they are mysterious and ethereal.
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.”
