Before I get to the photo challenge, I want to mention that the recipe I posted on Monday for My Best Banana Bread had a typo, which has since been corrected. Thanks to my attentive sister-in-law for pointing that out! Good thing one of us is paying attention.

Now on to the challenge: renewal. Nothing says renewal to me like the growth of plants, especially after winter snow. It has snowed here all day and it’s a beautiful winter wonderland. (Trying to make the best of it since there’s nothing that will change it.) I’m already looking forward to spring, and it’s only November. It’s going to be a long winter. Very long. I’ve included a typical winter shot of my side yard to help you understand the importance of spring growth and renewal.

  1. Beautiful snowy photos, although — like you — I look forward to spring every November! (Not very sporting for a Rocky Mountain girl!) I think you got more snow there than we did, but it has been cold here (brrr) and the kids are tobogganing their little hearts out. Thanks for the tulip photo…made my day — they are such a cheerful flower! (And Kush is adorable as usual!)


  2. What has Kush seen in that last photo !!!! Looks like she is standing F.I.R.M. 🙂
    Still got to check out your BBBread . Will report as and when 🙂
