Snow Day

There’s something so novel and magical about the first snow of the year.

So I took a quick walk around the yard with my camera before it all melts into a slushy mess tomorrow.

One of the photography newsletters I subscribe to has a 365 challenge.  Basically it encourages people to take one photo a day, and on their website they have a cool list of suggestions for weekly themes.  Well there is no way I’ll ever be able to keep up with a project like.  I can barely keep up with my laundry.  But I had an idea – I’ll take a picture of my front flowerbed from basically the same vantage point once a month to watch how it changes during the course of a year.  I can keep up with that. 

Maybe.

So here’s my January installment.

These are the steps I almost broke my neck on walking back to the house.

I love that my ‘Otto Luyken’ laurels retain their deep green color all year long.

I happen to look down and saw this-

I hope where this birdie lives they have a warm and cozy nest I like do.

I hope you do too.
