Monday Escape: A wintry trio from Dawes

Golden: Dawes Arboretum in Winter

Good morning! We won’t be all Dawes, all the time, but for one thing, there are no classic car shows in Ohio in winter, and for another, I spent part of the weekend a smidgen under the weather. Besides: To my mind, few things give us a leg up on the week better than the soul-soothing beauty of creation.

No one else seems to like these, but I do, particularly the first photo of the diaphanous golden leaf lying in the snow. (That one required my spending the remainder of the day with an icy, wet hem, too, so there!) 

Though there was evidence of many people visiting Dawes before our arrival, very few were left—all was silent and calm with only the marks of humanity all around; that’s what I was trying to capture.

Have a wonderful Monday!
