Winter under cultivation

Is as arable as Spring

Emily Dickinson

The Winter solstice begins and the daylight hours become longer with each passing day. That alone is worthy of celebration…


  1. Wow - they are some wonderful icicles. And yes, the days lengthening are reason for celebration. Have a wonderful Christmas Susan and thank you for visiting my blogs and leaving such delightful comments.

  2. The Winter Solstice is so special, I love the darkness, the stillness,it is as magical as your icicles, and just as fleeting... this moment... this gift.
    Winter Blessings to you lovely Susan xxx

  3. What a fabulous photo. The longer days are definitely a cause for celebration, I'm not a fan of winter. Merry Christmas from our house to your house.

  4. Longer days ahead...definitely something to look forward to. Our almanac calendar shows a gain of two whole minutes of daylight by month's end. I am not sure about your higher latitudes. Happy holidays to you and your family!

  5. Hooray to the days getting longer again! Woot woot!
    Have a most wonderful Christmas week!

  6. Amen to that! It was a dark and dreary day today ... but tomorrow will be lighter.

    Wishing you a blessed and beautiful Christmas! :)

  7. Dear Susan,
    Wishing you a very happy Christmas!
