We have freshly fallen snow here on the coast.
And a few pretty sea urchins that I collected from the shore.
Stacked up in hues of sea washed greens and soft plums they are tiny gifts from the ocean.
Inspired, I head into the kitchen to bake up a batch of cookies that I could perhaps decorate in the same colors. Although laden with sprinkles, my freshly baked sugar cookies looked more like sea urchin wannabees, rather than the lovely vision of sea urchin confections still dancing in my head.
However, they do pack quite a sugary punch and I like the way they sparkle.
Yesterday's snow was an all day event.
A mesmerizing, swirling pattern of motion.
