Nature's celebration

To take a break from gift wrapping, wreath hanging, and card writing, I went out for a walk this afternoon through one of the town's conservation areas.

The landscape, decorated in subdued tones, was a welcome balm for the intensity of seasonal demands.



I couldn't entirely clear my mind of holiday activities: I saw nature's tree-trimming efforts draped in garlands of bittersweet . . .



. . . dangling seed pod ornaments . . .



. . . and a spouting profusion of stars . . .



. . . while back at home, human hands were busy decorating the Christmas tree.



Inside and outside, happy holidays to all!

How lovely. I'd much rather view this landscape than the interior of Burlington Mall during the holiday season!
