Life Continues in the Winter

Our first January thaw, followed by a day of rain, revealed this beauty in granny’s garden.


This flowering kale had been buried in snow.  It grows in a protected spot near the basement wall, where it sheltered from most winds.

It is so good to see these brilliant colors among the white and brown that seem to characterize our winters.  It was snowing when I took this shot, and yes, that is snow on those lovely leaves.


I particularly like the textures of snow and kale in this closeup shot.  It also makes me glad to be sitting back in this warm office.

    • It was very hard to miss that. Those colors are exactly what the camera saw. I only resized the pic–no tampering with other parameters.

  1. I never dreamed that Kale would change to those beautiful colors !! All I know is that my eye specialist always reminds me to eat lots of Kale and other green , leafy vegetables !! Thanks for the uplifting picture !!

  2. A lovely reminder that beneath the gloom and ice a promise of a brighter day! Great pictures.
