A moment in time...

Lovely, dark fog this morning in the garden. Frost on the rooftops, on the dried leaves scattered throughout the grass and on spent roses—like frozen jewels on crystal petals. I can hardly see the trees just down the garden past the fence; muffled as they are in this silent and puzzling cloud of muted whites and grays. And I liked it.

Like in a dream from which you had just woken up, I move from the window and realize I've been standing there, looking outside for a long time; or perhaps, was it just a moment in time?

I’m thinking I should go outside before this magical world of ice melts before my eyes, but I had candles here and coffee brewing in the coffee pot. It is still early and the morning calls for some cuddling up. I love when the house is this quiet, and the feeling of calmness it bestows.

May you all have a cozy weekend!


  1. I also like the early morning peace when all is still quiet. Before long I will love the sound of the birds wakeing me up and the sunshine giving me that extra boost to get into the yard. Have a wonderful weekend. Mary

  2. I haven't seen a morning like that for a long time. Thanks for bringing back the memory. Your window is beautiful. I wouldn't feel so cold out in that snow if I could look in on that...Judy at GoldCountryCottage

  3. I've got snow on my roof top today! Your picture is warm an cozy looking but I'm ready for spring, Laura

  4. It looks so peaceful and sweetly soothing there, Cielo. I hope you have a wonderful weekend- xo Diana

  5. Oh beautiful have made me sigh with delight...I could get lost in your prose so perfectly placed! Thank you for this moment...that you shared it with me who often feels the same way about the same is in these tiny moments.
    Soft hugs from the cozy cottage

  6. Le matin, de très bonne heure quand le jour se léve, j'aime sortir au jardin et découvrir les roses recouvertes de rosée.
    J'aime beaucoup le décor sur la table et l'atmosphère que la lampe procure. Les rideaux sont magnifiques et cet ensemble me correspond parfaitement.
    Belle journée jocelyne
