Continuing a look at the seasons in the walled garden in Ithilien...
The winter sun showed ferns of frost that decorated the window panes and were echoed in the walled garden below, where those few leaves that remained were edged in white. The grass, too, was hoar-frosted and Faramir knew that, were he to walk across it, it would scrunch beneath his feet.
But the feet that crossed the whitened lawn were not his. Another, warmly cloaked, made her way to fill the seed bowl and break the ice to let the birds drink; bringing a smile to her husband’s face at the image of the White Lady in her white garden.
