January is one of those months in Houston when the weather is unpredictable. One day it might be 70, another it’s barely above freezing. Sometimes there’s a hint that it will snow. Generally, that doesn’t happen, but that’s no reason not to create a winter wonderland!
From a poinsettia woods comes a snowman warning an oncoming truck of slippery cabled roads ahead. Oh, is that the happy sound of voices singing HiHo, HiHo warming the frigid air?
More snowmen smile and say hello from snowy white plates made cheery by bright red napkins held in place by birch tree napkin rings.
No, snow is not likely, but with a little imagination we can always create a bit of winter’s magic.
To top it all off, there’s nothing better than enjoying bowls of hot wintery soup. If there are any leftovers, should they be shared with the snowmen?
