unexpected beauty



On the second day of spring we woke up to snow, and to the unexpected beauty of the maple buds frosted with a lingering winter surprise.

Amazing! Amazing that you had snow and that you captured this beautiful image in the midst of it. We are having sunshine and actually worked in the garden for a few hours today which was lovely, although overwhelming to see what we have to do. :) Wishing you spring warmth soon, dear Mary! ♥
