I know this subject of the long winter here is very tiresome, and like everyone else I'm longing for sunshine and color in my yard. Desperate for photos 'for my blog,' I wandered outside yesterday with Scott's camera. The prettiest sight among all the gray and brown was the hearty ivy that grows on the north side of the house. It had a skiff of snow dusting its green leaves. I also thought the photo of our stair rail with big droplets of slush showed what kind of a day/week/month we're having.
