Beautiful Day~Signs of Life

How beautiful! A touch of fall intertwined with the first snow of near winter. Such a  lovely contrast. While the leaves of fall linger on the ground, the most amazing tender touch of winter-white gently blankets the earth. My backyard is the most wonderful place to take a walk. Signs of life surround me every step of the way and, since I get to walk in nature any time I wish, I feel immense gratitude.
