Seeing White, Going Green

Have you noticed me complaining remarking about our lack of snow this year? Well, we did get almost 2" last week. A second storm later in the week passed us, while I'm seeing white, it's really not so beautiful. It's getting old, some has melted, some is not pristine white anymore. But we DO have snow.

Cardinals in the bushes - brilliant color against white. Notice there are two smaller, less colorful, almost hidden birds (sparrows) in the lower left on the photo.

Winter whites from the past two winters ♥

While I don't love hate cold weather, and am petrified of driving on ice/snow, I am a very visual person. I appreciate beauty. And fresh snow cover is indeed pretty.

Going green: some scenes from the beautiful Botanical Center of Greater Des Moines

I cannot remember the name of this plant, but it surely is a stunner.

Speaking of going green, have you seen the Go Green series of stamps issued by the USPS?

I'm linking to Fertilizer Friday at Tootsie Time.

Thanks for visiting,
