On a recent cold but sunny day

Posted on by Julie Wortman

This has been a see-saw sort of winter. A few very cold, often sunny days; then a spate of warmer weather bringing slushy snow and rain. I love what the low winter sun on these bright cold days does in the house, zinging into normally subdued corners.

When we potted up that begonia to bring it in for the winter, who knew it would be so electric by a west window. Up until this year my feelings toward begonias had only been tepid, but now I’m quite in love with this one.

The red-twig dogwood stems left over from a decorative bow toward the red and green of Christmas were dancing in the sun.

Maggie was not deterred, though her trips outside were shorter than the norm.
