white tree {life}

Here's our white tree. Smaller and creamier than I anticipated. But I love it.

It's also the solstice. The shortest day of the year.

I love winter.

"O Winter! ruler of the inverted year, . . . I crown thee king of intimate delights, Fireside enjoyments, home-born happiness, And all the comforts that the lowly roof Of undisturb'd Retirement, and the hours Of long uninterrupted evening, know." ~William Cowper
