January Thaw

I love it when we get a reprieve from the cold snowy bitter harsh winter. Today, we are thawing out a bit.

I used this opportunity as I always do to clean and hose out the garage of the oily gray slush that collects on the floor. So not worthy of a picture! I took a nice long walk instead and found this with my camera.

And when I zoom in it looks like a painting.

Love the close-up of the pine cone! I got your message--we'll have to get those two black cars together sometime soon. I'm busy too, but let me know if you have some time.
