3/23 - Challenge: Celebrate Spring

Neighbor's Yard

All of my creative ideas fell apart today, either because I have not had time to get what I needed or due to the weather not being
cooperative. It is cold and overcast here with an 11 to 13mph (18 to 21kph for you European folks) blowing in from due North.
With wind chill factored in it has barely been above freezing all day. So I ran out and got this shot in my neighbor's yard.
