I know .. I am pushing the snooze button here with my fascination of "snow diamonds". I'm so glad that I still see the magic of sparkly snow. I still don't know the science or mechanics of why we see these diamonds .. I just know that when I stop and look at this brilliant sight it makes me feel full of pleasure and wonder about how this all happens. This could be working up to "winter accumulation disorder" or in short "cabin fever" and severe "garden withdrawal" .. with months ahead of me. I prefer to think of it as the silver lining with winter. Seeing the sparklies for their beauty .. seeing the glass half full ? .. if you buy that, I have some land in Antarctica I am willing to part with for the right price : )
Nope .. just one of those moments that I grabbed the dust bunnies from between my ears and took a moment in time for myself and was totally in awe of mom 'nature" and the little treat she gives me while I am "Nanook of the Frozen North" ... hanging on for dear life till Spring pops in to thaw me out and let me loose in the garden .. for now I will hang on to my snow diamonds and count the seconds/hours/days/weeks/months .... aarrgghhh !!!
