Searching for Color and Signs of Spring...


~The February sunshine steeps your boughs
And tints the buds
And swells the leaves within.
~William C. Bryant




~Avalanche and I went out for a walk...
Enjoying the warmth of the sun &
searching for bits of
color.




~Ice in puddle on driveway
beginning to melt...




~In the Winter ...you can feel
the bone structure
of the landscape,
~the lonliness of it
~the dead
feeling of Winter.
Something waits beneath it
~the whole story doesn't show.
~Andrew Wyeth
And to really brighten my day
An "I Love Your Blog" Award
Thank~you Ida!!

Lovely collection. It looks like you found some gems.

It's snowing again here today. I think we've had snow every week since December. No big storms, little ones just plenty of them.

Winter is great for earth bone structure. I also enjoy the bare bones time because the trees and shrubs reveal all the secret homes that were built in them during the summer.
