a wintry walk.

i don't know about in your parts, but the weather here is nuts.
one day it's 30, the next it's 70, and after that it's 22.
today i believe it's about 15.

i've been on this kick of trying real hard to get outside and walk every day i'm off, so the other day i venture out and realize it's mighty cold out, but it was so beautiful.  definitely windier than what i care for, but the sun was shining and it was peaceful.

when i got home i decided to grab my camera and head back out to snap pics of all the pretty things i saw while i was out.  winter is not my cup of tea, but it sure can be pretty.  we don't get as much snow as i'd like, but nature can create some other things that i like almost as much.

I love your pictures of the blustery day! By the way, i immediately thought if Winnie the Pooh when you said "blustery." We are having crazy weather here in Virginia too. It really is insane. One day it feels like spring and the next it's chilly and frosty. I don't get it...
