a small stone, January 19th, 2012

Icy determination

Fleece-encased feet

shuffle & crunch as they stomp a path

to the winter garden's snow queen:

Camellia japonica.

I have mixed feelings about camellias but I can imagine that snow would make them more appealing.

I love the image of "fleece encased feet".

Hello, & nice to meet you, Cosmo. Thanks for dropping by - I assume you're here via the River of Stones blog. Camellias aren't among my favourite plants either, but I think a dusting of snow makes even the plainest shrubs look elegant.

Hello, Kathryn. Glad you liked the description of my boots. Warm feet are definitely happy feet on these cold, winter nights.
