Winter Wonderland in the Berkshires

Winter Wonderland in the Berkshires

Freezing rain

Ice and snow

Bitter winds

Winter woe

But in the depths

The flowers grow.

                       (by Joyce Monachina, my mother)

 

The Berkshires offer an especially magnificent landscape after freshly fallen snow. I thought I would take you to a couple of my favorite quiet spots to enjoy the unique nature of this winter wonderland.  Sometimes the quiet of nature is all we need.
