Nature Notes: Dreary Spring Day

Visit Michelle at the home of Nature Notes.

Yesterday was so bright and sunny after the threat of severe weather passed. It was humid at first, then warm and pleasant. Unfortunately, it is now 28 degrees outside! There's snow in the forecast for a lot of places today including Dayton.

I walked the dog this morning and everything was gray. According to the weatherman, it will stay that way. It would be fine if not for the wind.

Under this tree and lamp there is a nice white bench. It looks inviting in nicer weather.
This tree catches my eye every time. It's twisted and light-colored like those twigs they sell for home decorating.

I love the tree with lamppost. They together create silhouette-like mystery.

There are few things more beautiful to me that bare trees and this is a beauty.

That is a sycamore tree....and I have come to love them the past few years.

Cold here again today...but not 28!

Sorry to hear you are getting snow. We got snowed on yesterday! I must admit I prefer the white over all the March brown. If only the world turned green as the snow melted!

It may be dreary, and the trees may be bare, but you sure got some great photos out of it.

Bare trees against any sky make such a statement!
