Thank you, will-o. Sorry to hear yours have been flattened, but I'm glad you are able to enjoy them here.

Photos welcome. Anyone with pictures of winter interest, please feel free to share.

Yes, I'm asking. That is what this thread is for.

Great additions--I like the sun making the grass glow adding color...and I really like the snow and lichens on the birch. Thank you.

I sometimes find myself meaning to add to threads after I've took a gander here and a gander there at all the new posts but then forget all about rounding up the photos. That's why it is good to bring the threads to the front of the line every now and then.

There are several threads that I remember enjoying...I can't remember what many of them are, but I'd be thrilled to see new life breathed into them. So, anyone out there with a favorite thread, please post to them, I'm sure someone will be wanting to see them revived.

Do you recall the loose photos in Organizing your photos?
Those are usually the ones I'll add to past subscriptions to bring them back to the top for newcomers to take notice of.

I haven't done that in a while though since I've been creating new threads as fast as the previous ones I've created peter out.
Guess I've lots of ideas to share and not enough time to do it. I seem to be able to keep up with 3-4 threads (Needing photo additions) along with reading all the others IF the token message stays at bay... When the sight acts up I've all I can do to keep 1-2 going.
That's how much that little bugger slows things down.

I don't know why....

But I'm drawn into making hot apple pies and lighting a fire.

I love the feel of a good warming blizzard!

I am not a big fan of winter, but there is something special about being snowed in with the one(s) you love. ...a homemade, warm apple pie would just make things that much better.

Pumpkin sounds good to me. Lucky you...sounds like you don't have to make dinner!
