When you think of winter landscapes, what is the first image that pops into your mind?
I took that picture last February, during a very rare snowfall here in Vicksburg, but our winter landscapes don't usually look like that. Instead, from mid-November through February, they look pretty much like this:
I know that, at a glance, it looks rather drab and depressing — but if you look a little closer, you will discover that there's a lot more to the landscape than there appears to be.
And tiny dried flowers that look like little stars ...
And all kinds of interesting grasses growing along the fence rows, which, I admit, do look drab — until you get a closer look.
If the winter landscape where you live isn't a picturesque snow-covered meadow or country lane, don't despair ... just look a little closer, and I'm sure you will discover, as I did, the beauty hidden within Nature's winter colors.
