Is this winter or spring?
Pockets at the bases of trees tell of warming air and sunshine.
Still, last year's thin, tattered beech leaves hang on.
I love the simplicity of this shot.
Was noticing this morning the angle of shadows--at left, shadows incline to the north; in the center, straight west; at right, to the south. Somehow I'd never seen this aspect of shadows before.
My little tomboy here looks wistful. "Are my friends out? Is it playtime yet?" She cares for little else!
