A little piece of summer.

Last night we had one of those lovely dense snows that coats everything with thick, clumpy crystals. It's not quite hoarfrost, but it still transforms the skeletal winter trees into dazzling white firecrackers.

Imagine my delight and surprise arriving to work today when I realized that some of the trees in my office courtyard still had deep red berries hanging from the branches. Here is a last little piece of summer hanging on in the face of inevitable winter.
