Winter in Upstate NY seems dreary and gray sometimes. So it's good to get outside and walk around the block and look for the beauty in nature.
Sometimes it's a dried seed head.
Sometimes it's a patch of flowers that just kept on blooming until the last minute. Even then, their frozen, dried petals hold a certain beauty.
The GROGgers are going on a holiday break. Some of us will head outdoors with our cameras, some of us will snuggle up with a book, and some of us will be sharpening our pencils and searching for that notebook we left somewhere on/under/behind the couch...
Enjoy the holidays ~
See you in 2022!
