“It’s not the heat, it’s the humidity,” we like to complain during Virginia’s steamy, sultry summers. Well, it’s February and “it’s not the cold, it’s the wind.”
It’s cold all right, but it’s the biting, bitter cold gales that are keeping me indoors. I learned a long time ago to respect those giant old oaks in my yard and to marvel at just how heavy – and potentially deadly – one falling branch can be.
All this by way of explanation for not taking pictures the past few days for a new photo challenge. My friend Joanne at My Life Lived Full explained the premise devised by fellow blogger Cardinal Guzman and I was immediately captivated by the idea.
The purpose of this challenge is choose a location near your home and take several pictures every month. The idea is to capture all the changes that occur over the year – the seasons, the weather, and different times of the day.
I’m jumping in a month late but the Cardinal says that okay. You could join anytime too!
I’m thrilled to have a monthly photo project which will document what is going on in my gardens and when. So without further ado, here are January/February shots around the old Barn. I’m looking forward to the changes ahead as the weather warms up and the wind stops howling a bit. It will stop, won’t it?
Wishing you all a great weekend,
