We’ve had several days of very severe winter weather…..snow, freezing temperatures and winds that make it feel even colder. All of this happened just days before the first day of spring. Hopefully soon I’ll be able to post macros of emerging plant life with some green and colour in it.
…after such a mild January it’s not surprising that the shrubs and vines are confused
Since these photos were taken last week we’ve had snow but the temperatures are just hovering around freezing. Later this week that will change when the temperatures are suppose to drop to -24 degrees celsius.
…the New Year has not started out well for long walks
I ventured out into the backyard to see if I could find some interesting textures. It’s quite amazing how green everything is for January. I tried to go for a walk later in the afternoon but it really started to rain very steadily so I turned around and headed back to the house.
I’ve also been trying to rid the house of sweets. Somethings I just can’t bring myself to throw away but luckily many of them are wrapped and I’m less likely to binge on things that I have to unwrap. I love how cellophane reflects light and the candy cane topping has wonderful texture. The foil wrapped candy suggests that the candy inside has texture as well and it doesn’t disappoint.
