". . ..I
cannot endure to waste anything so precious as autumnal sunshine by
staying in the house. So I have spent almost all the daylight hours in
the open air." ~Nathaniel Hawthorne, 10th October 1842

No longer can we walk barefoot or sit for coffee or tea in the early morning sunshine. Ice crystals and snow crystals are always so unique and fun to look at, design within design . . . .
