Winter Sunset

Today the sun was brilliant! The temperature stayed in the thirties all day. So far the average temperature for February is way below normal for our area of North Carolina. Usually February days are much milder. I walked through the yard hoping to see some signs of spring. I guess it has just been too cold for most of the plants to decide to come alive. Even my winter daphne doesn't seem to want to bloom. I am sure that underneath the ground, life is beginning. I am so ready to see color in my landscape again. One positive aspect of the clear, cold sky is the beautiful evening sunset. Winter sunsets are some of the prettiest of all.

Winter sunsets are the best aren't they? Warm would be wonderful but right now I'd settle for dry!
