Weekly Photo Challenge: Winter……Out with the (C)old!!!!

Wow! The final weekly photo challenge of 2011 is upon us!!   We’ve a scant 30 minutes ’til it’s “out with the (c)old, in with the new!”

If you’ve looked through my blog at all, you know I spent my entire life in the Northeast. I could share hundreds of Winter “Wonderland” pictures with you, but I”m loathe to perpetuate that myth.  Besides, on the advice of a caterpillar 😉 we left that mess behind!  😉

But the question remains…how to photograph winter, when you live in a place it doesn’t typically visit?    Simple…you take a picture of this December bloomer with a name CS Lewis would love:

Kalanchoe gastonis-bonnieri

Mexican Donkey Ears

Kalanchoe Gastonis Bonnieri isn’t the only winter bloomer, though.   Look at this other harbinger of winter, watching over my front walk.

Euphorbia Trigona

When the yellow “dots” emerge in late November, count forward three weeks to the arrival of winter….and Santa!  Now he’s a myth I can get behind!!!!

Until next year…….

  2. Love the blooms of Winter. For most of my life I haven’t seen a snow till in 2009. It is a beautiful event but then in general I love Summer and the colors it brings. I enjoy sunshine and I embrace its rays of light…small world isn’t it? Happy New Year…

  3. Taking a picture of a winter bloomer is a great idea. For me it’s easier to seek a more typical winter scenery, but for me every season has it’s charm 🙂
    happy new year!

  4. Now…I am so happy you stopped by my blog..and from one succulent lover to antithetical…Happy New Year!!!

  5. Quite bizarre for a “winter” shot! But I like your photos as they make us discover different meaning of words. 🙂 Thanks for the share!
