Winter Walk - Lin Frye

Blue skies, sunshine, temps in the mid 60s! A mid-winter's dream of a day - and a walk around our neighbhorhood and park.

Despite the teasing temps, winter is still evident in the bare trees, landscapes of sienna and pine green, and not even a dandelion to be found. This is the view from the entry to our neighborhood - grasses and tangles of left over vegetation, a few sparse leaves on the trees, pines giving the air a breath of chlorophyl. Even with blue skies, the view says 'winter' .....

Today we drop almost 30 degrees and cold, wet, grey weather returns. Still the minor respite at the end of the month was incredibly uplifting and just the boost in optimism we all seem to need this time of year. Hope you have a grand week!
