Don’t let the draw of that cozy, warm fire keep you from venturing out into winter’s cold. This season can be so amazingly beautiful . All you have to do is bundle up your skin and open your eyes to take it all the striking scenes so frequently left unnoticed. Here are some I’ve captured in my own yard this winter.
Symmetry of astilbe stems or hydrangea branches reaching up from the snow.
Contrast of a still colorful blue fescue versus a spent hydrangea bloom.
Carex under snow or euonymus standing strong in spite of snow.
Look up to see crisp blue skies of midday and orangey, purpley sunsets at dusk.
Look down to witness the reds of a decaying log and bark in healthy grays.
It’s cold. It’s snowy. Still, it is so, so beautiful.
