I'm playing along with Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop again this week! With five prompts to choose from, I've got my foot on the gas for the number two: A photo journal entry…show us what winter looks like in your town. Except, rather than IN town, I'm rollin' just outside of town and taking you with us on our one of our daily country drives! Do hope you'll come along! :>
Roll your windows down, the sun is shinning, no fog in sight! Tuesday we couldn't see more than a few feet ahead and the next morning the thermometer read fifty degrees, by the afternoon, we had passed seventy! See? Perfect day to get out & into the country!
We have numerous routes we take for our country drives, but you can bet there will always a vineyard or two...or three or four or more!
Gnarly old vines capture my attention each and every time, looking like hands erupting from the earth with tales to tell!
I loved gazing up at this tree, from below.
Loved it so much, couldn't decide to dress it in color or B&W!
You might remember these trees from their photo op back in November. They were all dressed up in shades of gold & crimson and while many have shed their party clothes, it does look like there are a couple still hanging on with to their attire.
Hope you've got room for one more tree to see on this drive, but this tree hides its whispers the rest of the year beneath a coordinated skirt & shawl of verdant leaves. Listen closely now, surely there's secrets to be shared. I wonder what they'll be?
And our country drive for the day comes to an end. But, just before entering my front door, the Nandina bamboo berries called to me. Aren't they pretty?? But, they're just for looking, no tasting now....when I went a Googling, I learned they are poisonous! But, that's okay, they're feast enough for the eyes...at least, I think so. :>
Would love for you to come say hello and tell me how the drive was!
