I took a walk through some very deep snow this morning watching for inspiring wintry scenes so I could take my photo of the day. When, lo and behold, reaching across the path right in front of me was this branch. Suddenly my mind jumped ahead – about one month? two? I imagined the smell of soil and new leaves, water running and warmer temperatures. Stop! I tell myself. Not yet. It’s still winter! But it is late winter and March is only a couple of weeks away. A girl can dream, can’t she?
