With the temperature due to go up, I thought I should brave one more painting day in the orchard before the snow melts. It was another really cold one, but so beautiful with the sun creating gorgeous lacy blue shadows of the trees in the snow. Once again I was counting my blessings to have this opportunity to enjoy this fleeting moment in nature - thinking about those who have lost loved ones....
