Would you like to see more or is spring calling?

Funny, the other day I was thinking of putting this thread on hiatus, because I started thinking we might be done with snow...then I realized that many people have pictures they just haven't posted yet.

Keep 'em coming if you have them... or hold them until the heat of summer when we need to cool off!

Hey! I guess it *is* officially the first day of spring. I was thinking it was the 21st...and (honestly) I didn't even realize today was already the 20th...this month is flying by!

Even though this was taken in the spring (today), this is the type of winter interest and color I've always loved and one reason I started this thread. Also, havalotta and some others still seem to have snow--poor them.

If I waited until next year, I'd never have found the picture again.

I've always loved the color of beech leaves...and I love how they hold onto many of them throughout the winter.
