Yes, spring can't come soon enough for me. It's been -20 below and then some in Northern WI at night for the past week. Some days....never rising above 0.

No surpise wildlife shots for me this week. I think all the critters are curled up trying to stay warm like me!

Here are a few shots of what the snow and cold looks like here.

If I could I would. I was told I could have the video for my birthday so if you win you can critique it for me so I can salivate on this end waiting for my birthday.

My oldest son brought it home from the neighbor ladies when he was about 5 and "helping" her with her flowers, so these are about 30 years old. LOL Both the roses and the peonies got several treatments of Bokashi "juice" and I truly think it made a huge difference in their bloom and production.
Your flowers are beautiful! I love the scent of peonies and always wanted to make "Eau de Peony". The rose is so gorgeous! I hope you don't mind but I just felt like playing with it a bit. You can have it back now.

I thought this shot would be great for the January contest.

It's been on Flickr-Explore for over three years straight which is fantastic. I took this with a little Coolpix in January 2006 while on a ride in blizzard looking for something to shoot (camera). I turned out like a Christmas card scene, really giving the feel of the cold wintery day at a farm. Hope you like it.

Sage, don't know what you did to the picture of the rose, but it looks wonderful. Thank you What kind of software are you using to do that?
Of course, TheLorax is going to say we're cheating, but what does she know? LOL

You're welcome! I just tweaked it with http://picasa.google.com/ which is free. I could have had even more fun with it in Photoshop but that's not yet on the laptop.

I've got Picasa, but there's the difference between an amateur and somebody who knows what their doing. LOL
