After a fresh snow…

…there are no sounds in this silent garden, only sunlight and long shadows.

Silent Garden with Snow and Rocks

Silent Garden with Snow and Rocks

 

Pots filled with evergreens and snow

Pots filled with evergreens and snow

 

A lone concrete bench, mounded with fresh snow and shadows everywhere

A lone concrete bench, mounded with fresh snow and shadows everywhere

 

Even the steps full of snow have not been touched, except by the sunlight and shadows

Even the steps full of snow have not been touched, except by the sunlight and shadows

Some will melt away, and more will fall.

It is Winter.

It is Chicago!

Winter’s leftovers

Today is the last day of meterological winter.

Although this season has been very ‘un-snowy’ and relatively mild (for Chicago), in areas such as these, which never experience sunlight, snow and ice remain.
