Winter White ...

“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”
                  ~Lewis Carroll
                        ~ 1832-1898
                  ~  “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”
                                 ~ 1865
                   “Through The Looking Glass”
                               ~ 1871 
The first snowfall of the season gently wraps the landscape in the beauty of winter white at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania as sunset draws near. Though the first snow fell December 9, 2017, a few weeks before the official beginning of winter, it blanketed the late autumn day with hushed winter beauty.
