Elegance and a gift

This lovely porcelain bird was brought to class by one of my
I fell instantly in love.
What a gorgeous form, origami-like in its sharp angles and the
paper white look of it.
The shadows it cast just doubled the visual pleasure.
Here you see two shots I took of it as it sat on my desk.
Then, my lovely student, and new friend,
gifted it to me.

Oh tree of winter beauty!

Sometimes when the weather and season is particularly wonderful,
I drive around the streets in my neighborhood to enjoy it.

A recent wet and heavy snow did amazing things to the trees.

I came across this gorgeous weeping tree and now I am sharing it with you!

Doesn't it look a bit like a stork? Or a crane?
