Frosted Mums Day 12

I like cheerful little mums, but I love the affect frost has on the color of the leaves.

Age of Innocense Day Day 9

Age of innocence

Kia Day 8

Kia the "Oh so glad to see you dog'.
When I arrive home, this is what I see at the window of my car as soon as I stop.  The son's dog is a loving dog.  He knows how to make you feel wanted.

Butterfly Dreaming Day7

I have an awesome butterfly 3D bookmark that cheers me on wintery gray cold days.  This was my attempt to share it with you...Could not get the 3D affect. When I was looking at it the green butterfly seems to loom above the hanger.
Anyone with suggestions for what I might do?  I use a small inexpensive digital camera.  Oh my...camera dreaming now. ; )

Winter Time Royalty Day 5

The Pansy is the choice for color in the winter time. 

Empty Nest Waiting Day 4

I love Crape Myrtle trees.  They are beautiful in the winter for color of bark and form and in the summer for blossoms.  I found this one still had a bird's nest waiting for the next resident.

Oops Day one was supposed to have been on the 16th.!

Oh my, here I go again.  A day late and a dollar short. (rolling eyes)
Despite the freezes some mums have survived.
I liked the movement of the dead leaves so I played with the picture a bit.

Viola's 'Great Survivors' Day 1

Viola tricolor)
The violas have survived the 20's and low 30's where the rest of the flowers are pretty much gone.  I thought given the harsh early winter we have had, this would be the flower to 'jump off' my 365 blog.
