I woke up early this morning to a dusting of snow. It came down pretty hard for a spell but did not end up sticking to the ground – except in the woods. Since picking up a temporary job for the State of Vermont a couple of weeks ago, my routine has changed Monday through Friday. I’m up before sunrise so I can partake of my morning coffee regimen and generally start work around 7:30 am. Vermont state workers are still working from home, so I have my workspace set up on the dining room table. I’m trying to figure out how I’m going to organize my photography time around my work obligation and get my daily walk in! 🙂
With the shorter days, it’s going to be a challenge to get outdoors, take part in my daily exercise and take pictures! Today, I decided to sneak outside during my mid-morning break. The temperatures were hovering in the low 20’s and the wind was howling – but I was too lazy to bundle up since I did not plan on lingering long in the great outdoors. So, I wondered around the front garden in my slippers without a coat. Brrr…..if nothing else, it woke me up!
It’s amazing how the garden transforms itself in the winter and the focus shifts from blossoms to other interesting plant parts. There is beauty beyond flowers! You just have to look closely!
