I don’t know about you, but I’ve always been intrigued with the “before and after” images in decorating magazines. This past December a version of this opportunity presented itself in the form of a “bomb cyclone” (whatever that means). No sooner had I taken pictures of my front door Christmas decorations than an arctic blast delivered multiple inches of snow — amidst a full-on gale, which was a bit eerie. Prevailing against this big blow, I was able to open the front door and sneak down the steps for a few snaps of the now snowy version of a green scheme.
The sharp and fascinating contrast between the before and after door decorations had me recalling that old song “what a difference a day makes…twenty-four little hours.” And thus was this post born. Some spots around the Parterre garden in addition to captures in town are the basis for a post theme that I’ve never considered. Enjoy and stay warm!
Many of these images are compelling on their own, but a dusting of snow adds that proverbial “frosting on the cake.”
