More pictures of Martin Luther King Day snowstorm morning. First one is of our backyard. It was the first picture I took that morning. The red thing up front is a plastic cabin the kids used to play in and I have not had the heart to take to the dump.







More dogwood pictures.

Here are two earlier dogwood pictures, one featuring our van in springtime.

The photo below is for Lisa who inspires me to stare into the sun...



My best.

I really enjoy these pictures of your garden, John. It's nice to know that you are surrounded with such beauty. I can understand your interest in gardening given the circumstances. I would too.

Lovely, glint of winter sun, like a sparkling jewel caressed by the tree limbs.

And dosn't that sun look like a giant snowflake (or is it a meteorite??) about to land? I can see the Irlen's blue in that pic too. Thanks for looking into the sun for me:)
I really like the top right corner too....

Dang, thought the top photo had its own comment area. Your backyard is dream like, I love that you have so many trees and all that snow! I can imagine sitting on that seat listening to the birds and watching the light change. The play house fits the scene well...I used to have a play house too...memories...
