Maryland Blogger: Just two months ago!

Just two months ago!

Just two months ago!


Just two months ago, dahlias were in full bloom in Kentlands. One of the benefits of regular photowalks in the neighborhood is that we can recall those images long after they are gone.

We have chilly weather in Maryland and it is pleasant to thinks about beautiful flowers. I hope you don’t mind slipping back to the last season for a moment of reflection.

It is nice to see those pictures and think of warmer days Roy. We are heading into the deep freeze here for the next week they say.

Thanks Mr. Roy. It is cold and dreary here in West Tennessee today. I was once stationed at Ft. Meade, Maryland and remember the cold there as well.

Tomorrow I need to go out in my yard and take pictures of golden yellow roses blooming in my yard at the end of this year.  I find it amazing.

Hi Roy,

So far this year we have just had cold, but little snow as compared with the weather we had last year.  However, with Christmas over, we do start to think about the days getting longer and spring within 3 months now!

How pretty! There is something special about every time of year, and right now it's.. um, it's..... uh, oh, I know, the wonder of a wood stove.

Have a nice day.
