Yesterday we had our first snowfall of the season in our little section of the county. It was barely enough to cover the grass and, fortunately, melted as soon as it hit the pavement. But the trees were beautiful, covered with a light coat of ice-capped snow. If the sun had been out, they would have sparkled.
I like taking photographs, sometimes with the thought of using them for references for a painting or drawing. So I grabbed my point-n-shoot camera and took a couple from my front porch…just basic shots of the evergreen in front and some close-ups of the red dogwood. But the pictures of the dogwood kept staring back at me…as if with a tiny version of that awful red-eye we sometimes capture.
So I zoomed in and…lo and behold, is that a sign of spring just waiting for the right time to bloom?
If so, it can’t come soon enough.
