We have not seen the snow this winter...
We have even subtropic climate in Azerbaijan.
You can find information about it in in this sight http://www.cac-biodiversity.org/aze/aze_climate.htm
"The natural climatic conditions of Azerbaijan are unique! As it well known, that in Azerbaijan exist 9 out of 11 climatic zones. Dry, subtropical with hot summers and mild winters; forests, meadows and alpine tundra in the mountains."

Blankets of snow and now a shawl---sounds cozy in frozen sort of way. MB

Another gorgeous "nature" shot. Another shade of pale.

Boy, you are a "spirited" person! I can't slip anything by you! :-)

And for the shawl, the trees have made a dark lace to add to the beauty..

It's lovely through the screen of bare trees.

I'm thinking of going back to school, and two of the top low-residency MFA's are in Vermont. Maybe someday I will be your temporary neighbor!

I googled "Wantastiquet"..
A funny name for what seems to be the best view of Brattleboro.

A sight for my sore eyes (one bloodshot actually. I wonder why). This is soothing!
