Thank you Devika--This is the little stream that runs past my house in the mountains, under hemlock trees (those are its needles in the ice)...and the flowing water freezes into the most interesting shapes!

Lorraine--Ooh, is that a nickname you're giving me? (cute, but a bit hard to pronounce!) Glad you liked the photo...I guess it does fall in the macro category...

Janice--Thanks for such a glowing comment--makes me warm inside!

Lorraine--thanks for the clarification--I guess "B" could be the beginning of quite a few other words, don't you think? (it's still cute)

Namaki--So great to see you here for the first time--I am honored! Your blog is beautiful and thought-provoking!

Dante Alighieri said - Nature is the Art of God, and he was right.

God gave us memory so that we might have roses in December. -
J.M. Barrie

Great shot, Firebird!

Great quotes, Krystyna!
Actually, here in New York we often have a few roses still blooming in December--but now everything is frozen and snowy.
How about tulips in December...?
