A Study in Mushrooms

I came across a patch of mushrooms.

I was surprised at their beauty.

Stark, perhaps.

This little patch quickly sprung up, but will soon be gone.

I used to paint.

This  morning as I knelt close to the ground taking these pictures, I thought about picking up a brush again.

Maybe a camera is easier.

Snow on the Popcorn

I looked out the window, and what did I see?

Snow is on my popcorn tree!

The good news is our drought is over.

I'm not sure there is any bad news, as long as the dams in the canyons continue to hold all the water.

In the meantime...

My living room floor is the temporary home for my geraniums.

I don't mind that they are underfoot.

Not one bit.

This tree has been in bloom for more than a week, but the rain and clouds have not been conducive to a nice picture.  However, tonight I looked out the window, and what did I see?

Signs of Spring

 I've been seeing signs of spring lately.  I love spring, even if I have to buy the tulips.

Birds in the Snow

The birds are back.

And they are hungry.

Don't worry, we feed them.

It's been a long winter.

Late Winter Sunset

Once in a while a sunset grabs my attention.

And doesn't let go.

Cold Morning at the Provo City Center Temple

The sun had risen by the time I left the temple this morning.

I took many pictures of water in the fountain.  Mesmerizing.

Beauty remains all winter on these grounds.

It is so cold that this snow, which fell four days ago, is still in place.
