Scenes from Midwinter
This is the time of year we all begin to wonder "is spring ever going to make it this year?"
We've had snowcover since early Dec. We'll likely have it for at least another month, if not more. The trees will leaf out in the first week of May, if all goes well.
Some days are gorgeous, and I can get outside and enjoy the beauty of this place. Other days I feel crappy or its sleeting/freezing rain/just plain ugly and I curse the winter. For the last week I've been fighting some kind of bug so its mostly the latter.
But when the sun comes out and lights the frosted treeline, there's really nothing prettier. Except maybe a rose blooming in June. :)
