The last of winter

Winter is fading away and spring buds are gently showing their heads,

So now it’s time to enjoy the full glory of winter colours:

Majestic and glittering,

A world in silver and white –

And, if you’re lucky, a winter explosion of colours.

(All pictures taken in February. Please don’t feel sorry for me – spring is already on its way.)

    Thanks for reminding us of the ‘majesty’ that winter has and we soon forget when spring arrives.

    We’ve had more summer like weather it seems, which is strange. But it’s all beautiful isn’t it? ( and WordPress has been making me crazy , but I figured the issue out and here I am😉 )

    March 25, 2012 at 00:52

    • So glad you finally broke through the WP madness. I’ve unchecked a box saying that you have to leave your email address, so that people can try to get through that way. (Doesn’t always work.) Thanks for your patience!
