Another perfect snow, light and fluffy, impossibly white. Even on a gray day with no sun it’s bright. Tall grasses and dead wildflowers which had been drab and monotonous now stand out in stark contrast to the snow. The intricate structures of seedheads, the long arcs of stems, the stiff-necked clumps of native grass – are all sharply defined. They stand dark and still and unchanging while white powder swirls all around them.
