Taken at Duke Gardens in Durham, NC on February 24, 2017. Spring came early this year. Suits me fine.
This is one minute of the Eno River near the Pleasant Green access point on a beautiful sunny winter day.
This is me carefully picking my way down an icy street in my neighborhood, I like the way the ice crunches as a walk along.
Not exactly the 9-11 inches of snow we were promised by the National Weather Service! But we get snow so rarely here in Durham, that any snow is a treat.
In such a dry environment, it’s amazing to see any flowers at all, but these purple flowers seem well adapted to the harsh conditions and the windy landscape.
