Still mild in this neck of the woods. It won't last.

Looks very autumnal when it's a season of new growth here. Lovely photos.

Kath said...

Sorry, Vicki, you never get to call any photograph you share with us bleak. Everything has beauty through your eyes!

GrandmaK said...

There is beauty everywhere isn't there? You have the proof!!! Wishing you well! Cathy

Your pictures capture a sense of melancholy and yet they are very lovely. Hope you get sunshine back soon.

Thanks for reminding me of the promise. These wintry days will be with us for a while now. I'm so grateful for warm critters and blankets!

There is beauty in every season.

I'm in love with your blue bench! We had some bleak and cold days with rain this week as well. The promise was fulfilled today with beautiful blue skies.

Victoria said...

Bleak? No. Beautiful? Yes! Those buds do hold a promise, though. It's wonderful to think of the life held in such tiny things...

As Victoria pointed out, the promise is in the buds.

I've been busy all day, dealing with Willa the Wild Woman, putting together handouts for the Mystery 101 class I'm teaching at a NC wrters conference tomorrow, going to a party for the authors of the collaborative novel ( of which, more later) I participated in, and now I'm holed up in a hotel where the conference is, fighting sleep. I wanted to come blog visiting and catch up with you all but I'm afraid it will have to wait till Sunday. But at least this is the end of my running around for a while.
