Fire in a snow storm
Tiny pellets of icy snow started falling while we were winterizing the rose bed. As the ice drops gave way to snowflakes, we decided to start a fire while we continued to work at cleaning the last of autumn from the gardens.
I love watching the flames dance and flicker, listening to the snapping and crackling, smelling the hot woodsy scent.
Used Kim Klassen’s Softpalette, Magicscripted, and Swirlmagic textures.

Off the beaten path . . .
A while back we pulled off of the highway to explore some old country roads and spotted this old silo with a tree growing through the center. I snapped a bunch of pictures during that drive but it’s this photo that I keep coming back to.
I’ve spent too much time wondering how this tree survived. As a sapling growing in a darkened space its only sun would be at high noon. Wondering if silos have cement floors, and if they do, where did this tree plant its roots? Do birds enjoy its protected space?
It’s really a wonder that it survived . . .
I used Kim Klassen's Canvas Back and Warmly Cracked textures (2 layers of each).
