OK - we're out of snow. The sky, the clouds, the light were spectacular this evening - a good excuse to go and stand outdoors, and admire, and think. Those thin branches on the left-hand side, like waving reeds? We used to have three locust trees - one was, admittedly, dead, but I was reluctant to remove it, since it was a favorite perch for the bluebirds. This winter's storms did a good job of uprooting it, though.
