Winter Windows, eh? I knew this would be a challenge (for me) when Delores suggested it last week.
Let me just get my trusty hunting cats and my explorer scarf and my magnifying glass and see what thoughts I can scare out of the underbrush in my brain . . .
Donkey -- with cats, scarf, and magnifying glass. No?? Come on, use that imagination of yours :)
Here's what I found on my hunting trip.
Although February used to be quite a snowy month where I live, the last few years have been very "open" (not much snow cover). This year follows that trend. We have had quite a few snowstorms, but in between those the snow has either melted or been washed away by rain.
One thing that I like about snow on the ground is how it makes the days (and nights) look brighter, because it reflects the light. When there is no snow, the landscape looks drab and colourless.
So, instead of seeing snow and ice out my winter windows, I'm seeing . . .
What I See
Through this February glass
All I see is dead, brown grass
Leafless trees, expired flowers
How I long for April showers
Oh, yes indeedy, it IS a short one today 😀 Aren't we all lucky??
Now . . . how about HAIR as next week's topic? Delores, are you game?
Have a good week, everyone!
