Today as I walked around snapping photos, I imagined those dormant little buds bursting forth leaves in the spring. But then I decided to appreciate the beauty of the dormant stage as it is, and how dormancy enables these plants to survive the chilly winter.
The blue hydrangeas in the front of the house.
A little lilac, transplanted from Ed’s parents’ house.
The teeny dawn redwood tree.
Branches of our sugar maple against the blue sky.
