The stillness of winter

This morning I woke up and everything was covered with a white layer of frost and the sky was clear blue!  I put on warm layers of clothes and went outside. It was so beautiful!

The viburnum and helleborus in our garden are blooming in soft pink tones.

Even the persil seeds and sage look amazing with these frosted edges.

I’m fascinated by moss: its texture, all the different shades of green, the softness, the fragile leaves… Even in winter it looks so vivid and bright, like its green never fades.

I couldn’t resist feeling the softness of the moss. It felt like a delicate carpet.

Stillness is the flower of winter,

all hope waits beneath a blanket of white.

Some tiny signs of spring… I’m so excited about these fresh green leaves awakening here and there!

We are blessed to have our garden bordered on the nature reserve. It’s such a privilege to enjoy this unique nature landscape every day and see it changing with the seasons. I had such a peaceful and quiet walk, only the birds accompagnied me with their happy songs. It was the perfect start of my day!

Now it’s time to drink a cup of tea and try a slice of homebaked honey cake with mixed spices.
