snow-dappled leaf

clinging to the hope that winter might wait its turn with a bit more patience

(i'm finally home from my travels, but baby brattcat has also come home,
so i won't have time to leave comments for another week or so.
thank you all for stopping by to visit
and thank you for your wonderful calling cards...
by the way, this is my 1,000th!)
