Winter Wanderings…..

“If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant.” ~ Anne Bradstreet

On the day before the first day of spring, I thought I’d post just a few photos of winter in my woods.   I always feel peaceful when walking in the woods.

After a heavy snowfall, that turned the world into a fairyland……

The winter woods.

The winter woods.

The spruces stand tall..

The spruces stand tall..

Winter leaf...

Winter leaf…  A fall leaf shows strength and perseverance as it clings to a branch through the long winter months.  I made this photo into B&W, then brought the leaf color back.

 

 

Foggy winter morning...

Foggy winter morning…  Sometimes fog greets us on winter mornings.  I’m always trying to capture fog!

Thanks for viewing my post!  Happy Spring!

  1. Your image caught my attention right away,,so beautiful! Then I noticed the quote…Anne Bradstreet!! My mother did an oil painting of a likeness of Anne and it is used in some school books!!

    • Wow! That is very cool, Zannyro! I loved that quote when I saw it! Thanks for bringing it to my attention. I love to hear stories like that! And thank you for your sweet comment about my photo too.

  2. Bah, humbug, snow.
    We’ve had plenty this year and I’m tired of it, although at times the snow is beautiful, like in your pictures. I can only hope the snow today will be the last after spring tomorrow.
    Wonderful pictures!

    • Hey, hello Tess! Like I said in the post…..I’m hoping these will be my last winter pix!! Last year we had an early spring…it was 80 degrees one year ago today! But normally we don’t get true spring weather until the first week of May.
      When do you get spring temperatures? You’re farther north of me. Thanks for stopping by!

I'd love to hear from you~
