While walking along a street in a Washington DC neighborhood last Friday, I passed by a line of trees with small prickly seed pods (?) hanging from the branches. I had never seen anything like it.
My 3 year old grandson thinks they are coconuts, but I have my doubts.
Does anyone know what this is?

A soft rain was falling one day last week during a trip to the grocery store. Almost a mist. No wind. Cold, but not freezing.
I didn’t pay much attention…until I was ready to start the car and drive home. After buckling my seat belt, I realized not much was visible from any of the car windows…except a light pole across the street.
Tiny circles (and light poles) everywhere…
Once I started driving, they slid away and disappeared.

Last week it was “warm” enough for a relatively comfortable walk through the woods in back of my condo building. A sunny mid-afternoon in winter is an opportune time to catch the light – despite freezing temperatures. I lasted almost an hour before my fingers were too cold to operate the camera.
I never know what I will discover.
Much to my surprise (mostly because I am no plant expert and don’t expect anything colorful to survive winter), I noticed clumps of red dangling among the eternal browns and dull greens around me.
I am guessing these welcome splashes of color are winterberries…
A few winter survivors…still hanging on…

A canvas of condensation appeared when I opened the window shades one recent sunny morning…
…a winter silver lining revealed.

Root vegetables galore covered the tables at a local indoor farmers’ market a few months ago.
I don’t usually buy fresh beets at the grocery store.
However, this time I thought…why not?
Look at all those colors!

One of the many memorable parts of spending Christmas 2019 at my daughter’s home was her amazing cooking and baking.
The menu: extensive (even included a cheese course!).
The vegetables: fresh…and, in this case…the nutritional powerhouse cruciferous variety.
I decided to document…
The roasted Brussels sprouts (along with cousin cauliflower) were seasoned to perfection and enjoyed by all.
Remembering the colors of spring and birthday flower bouquets….
