We got some snow lately.
Maybe I’m crazy, but it seemed like the grass was greening up a little more before the snow came. We got a few spits’ worth of rain during the warmer days before it started snowing.
We thought it was almost spring, said the grass.

A mum with just a dusting of snow.
In addition to snow-bedecked photos of mums, milkweed, and coneflowers, I can now add zinnias and peonies.

I find myself unable to not take pictures of small wispy seeds when I find them.
My dad and I set off down one of the paths through the woods. This path was rabbit-approved.
One of those delightful octopus conglomerations of trees to the right with a largely bald red cedar to the left. Like how so many of the trees in this little grove all seem to be reaching to the left.
Goldenrod, the year-round MVP of the forest, ditches, prairie, and garden. So much interest.
Buds of the what I guess to be ponderosa pine growing, not so fortuitously, on the corner of the house.
Those were pictures from yesterday. Here are pictures from Friday, when the snow started.
Across the street
I wanted to take more pictures of the snow coming down, but I had neither a tripod, nor a desire to improvise one and drag it downstairs, nor a desire to improvise one and drag it onto my balcony, because I was not given an enthusiastic blessing to use the balcony whenever, and having thought it over, I decided that if I have to be on it when it collapses, I’d rather the weather be pleasant, so I didn’t go out there.
I had no choice but to take pictures of Christmas lights. Gradually this morphed into taking pictures of Christmas lights through glass.
