Nearly two hours of shoveling this afternoon,
which included lots of pauses to rest.
Wood aster and sedum
Just as I finished, the sun appeared low in the western sky.
Siberian iris and Japanese windflower
With my breath back, and my back beginning to relax,
I looked around and thought:
I'm overdue for some picture taking.
Northern Sea Oats
Thank God for a clear sky!
My constant companions:
snow boots and snow shovel
It may be February, but it looks like Christmas.
