Sunday Nature Quote: Snow Crystals

P1120802

The snow crystals . . . come to us not only to reveal the wondrous beauty of the minute in Nature, but to teach us that all earthly beauty is transient and must soon fade way. But though the beauty of the snow is evanescent, like the beauties of the autumn, as of the evening sky, it fades but to come again.

Sunday Nature Quote: Blooms

Picture2 068 (2)

From barren brown stems to glistening leaf-buds;
from the leaf-buds to snowy virginity of bloom…
It was like a flute song forgotten in another existence and remembered again.
What? How? Why?
This singing she heard that had nothing to do with her ears.
The rose of the world was breathing out smell.
It followed her through all her waking moments and caressed her in her sleep.
