You'll be seeing signs of spring out there before you know it!
Glad you are "recalled to life," very glad!

Love that first pic, Vicki. John Wyndham, eat your heart out!

Beautiful! Like Martin, I love the first picture.

I like that garden gate photo. The arcs all keep my eye traveling all over and back.
You must have so enjoyed the fresh air, though it be cold!

I know only to well the joy of getting back outside to nature again. So glad you're knee is getting much better. Love that first photo. I grinned about the way you traversed the stairs, done that too! But it worked that's only that matters!

Lovely pictures - you can almost feel the winter in the stillness of them

That had to be the best physical therapy possible. I'm mighty partial to gate photos. So pretty.

That first shot is, indeed, like a triffid, Martin. Alas, it's only a clematis seed head.

I traversed the small, relatively flat area behind our house -- anywhere else is sloping/steep and the knee and I aren't quite ready. Also, it's right chilly out.

Continuing to do my stair exercises...

And truly hope to stop talking about my blasted knee and get on to topics of more general interest now. You all have been so nice and encouraging; I really appreciate every one of you.

Glad you're back into the yard. Love all of your gate photos; there's something so Eastern about the look of the gate. It captures my attention in every photo as the differences in weather, lighting, wind, time of day, etc. change the look and feel of it.

I can feel those big breaths of fresh air you took. I like that first little plant - it looks for all the world like some odd but cute little bird's head.

Vicki -- I hope you are mending well. Having it all behind to face the new year has to be a good feeling -- barbara

I am catching up with old posts after a blogging break. Sometimes I just need to get away from the computer entirely, you know? Well, not entirely, I still have to work. But I go through these phases where I don't want to see one on my off hours. Anyhow, glad your knee surgery went well and that you are well on the road to recovery!
