Winterberries

I just got back from our "blonde, brunette & redhead" dinner with my two besties, but wanted to post a little photograph I took the other day in our snowfall. I always carry my little camera with me, even when I am walking the dog. There are three trees just covered with red berries and I thought they were so beautiful in the grey sky and new snow. My motto is "...finding extraordinary things in an ordinary life", and finding the beauty in a simple city scene typifies that philosophy.

  5. Those red berries are gorgeous! We found some purple berries in Krakow that I have never seen before.

    That's a lot of snow, by the way. Does Conner like it?

  12. Joni... I don't think they're edible, even by the birds! That's why there are so many on the tree! It's probably an ornamental cherry of some sort.

  13. Lovely photos. It's funny, I carry my little camera around with me as well when I walk the dogs. Something usually cries out for a photograph!

  15. Oh my goodness, how BEAUTIFUL. I wish that we had some brighter colors, mixed in with all of this gray. When I see some pictures of my summer garden I almost cannot believe it will look like that again . . . someday.
