2017-12-20 The smallest things

Sometimes Christmas appears in the smallest details. A few snowflakes on a budding holly tree makes me remember the first snowfall of the season. Memories dart about recalling long forgotten reflections of winter wonder in the delicate flowering of a bright red visitor who comes in December. The red fruit is a welcome burst of vibrant color in what is slowly becoming the bleak tones of the cold months.
