The pavilion did not look like it was inviting us for a picnic, but somehow a walk in the woods looked inviting to me.
It was a cold, gray, breezy afternoon.
The cold got into my bones – even though I was dressed warmly.
One bird house down.
We’ll deal with that in spring.
This is what rhododendron look like in winter.
Another perennial in its wintry finery.
Waiting for springtime.
This tree has one solitary leaf.
Our decorative grass is one of my favorite winter ornaments in the woods.
It is amazing how much wind and brutal weather its tiny, lacy leaves endure.
It appears that I forgot to bring the sand buckets inside.
I guess I won’t bother now.
This looks like a good hiding area for skunks, raccoons, and other woodsy animals.
A neighbor man took advantage of the afternoon for cross-country skiing.
I like the contrast of these seed pods against the snow.
Another reminder that winter is a time of decay and rest in the tree kingdom.
When at a recent photography class we heard about a person who gave up photography because he couldn’t find anything new to photograph.
I’m not there yet. 🙂
