      We have a good two feet of snow on the ground and bitter cold– 2 degrees F. this morning, so I’m not sure you’d really want to swap places. But it is a wonderful time of year to look for the small, special signs of nature. Thanks for reading!

    Nice shot … words remind me a bit of that scene in movie ‘A Year in Provence’ (Pt 2) where the poor woman is driven to distraction by the rooster (‘That bloody cock!’) and sends in an armed assassin with a rifle …

      Luckily I enjoy the sound of the rooster and hens going about their business. I have a feeling our neighbor on the other side of the woods may not have appreciated them quite so much. The rooster has gone surprisingly silent of late!

    Please tell me that is how they happened for you!! 🙂

    I was there! Silent, composed there, sipping tea without noise while we listened to the creation symphony unfold for us.

    Really enjoyed this one. Later today I am going to imagine how long each space was/is…and listen for my own winter sounds so different in the small city I live in during a NW wet winter swaddled in El Nino effects…

      Glad you enjoyed it. Symphony is such an apt phrase–and exactly what I think of when I listen to the natural world around me. Like an orchestra, the layers of sound play out, and I feel privileged to have front row seats.

      Yes! That’s how I heard it and hoped to convey the symphony of winter sounds. Thanks, Roger.

    If you read the post carefully it asks you if you wish to nominate others for the award and post them in a list. Up to you totally. I just thought it was so kind for a friend to nominate me for this and often ready your blog and reblog it.
