12 March 1999, USA
Animals in the Arctic Circle

This morning we had powdery snow flakes on trees, front garden and pavement – and blue sky above all.  Shiny sun was up, drew a low arch, and even at sunset the light was clear.  Beautiful winter day.  I wish you all a Happy New Year 2010!

I heard an owl hoot right now, what a nice coincidence!  I was thinking of owls in wood, uploading this post.  Also, I think these stamps represent feeling of new year’s day, as animals are waiting for spring as we do.

This year in Chinese Zodiac is Tiger.  I only have one stamp of a tiger, from Korea, which I featured already.

新年あけましておめでとうございます。今朝起きると木々も道路も白い雪で覆われ、青空が広がっていました。透き通った空気と陽の低い静かな午後、そして夕暮れ時になっても光がきらきらした冬の日でした。

雪の中で春を待つ動物達、例えばフクロウ、、、と思ってこの切手をアップしていたちょうど今、裏の森でフクロウが鳴きました。素敵な偶然に嬉しくなります。

今年は寅年ですが、手元にあってここに載せたいほど好きな虎の切手はたったの一枚、韓国の切手で、すでにアップしていました。
