Today I was supposed to go work with nature. I anticipated doing something that would contrast nicely with the snow. However, it has been a weird winter in the Snow Belt. I had only a few patches to choose from. The picnic table I intended to use as my background didn't even have a snowflake on it. Last year about this time, we were buried. This year, it has felt like an early March with grey skies and muddy lawns. It's still chilly, though, so I put on my boots and hat and went to work. It didn't take long to find me some sticks and ta-da! I hope this brightens your day. Be nice to each other.
