Picture Winter: Signs of Life
I still wear my flip flops and I can’t/won’t give them up. I bought new slippers but they were too small and they don’t make them any bigger. Story of my life. Today’s prompt was to seek out signs “Of life. Of hope. Of beauty. Of all the wonder that is happening right under our noses.” Knowing that we were in for a big storm today I filled the bird feeders last night. Today, the feeders were busy with a variety of birds all day long. The birds sought refuge from the heavy snow on our front porch and when I looked out the window and saw the tiny footprints I knew I found my sign of life. So after a quickie pedicure I braved the cold. In the photo, above my feet, you can see two tiny bird print hearts.
I also created my own sign of life. I took red tulips outside in the snow in stark contrast with the 18″+ of snow.
Adding the spring green bench for even more contrast.
The tulips seemed no worse for wear after spending 20 or so minutes outdoors. I should probably be more concerned about my camera.
Just what does 18″+ of snow look like? Ask Stella!
