Winter landscape

IMG_3030 as Smart Object-1

Indiana looks like winter. We have shared many pictures recently of our late fall in Downey. We still have fall colors and leaf-filled lawns.

The grass is mostly dead and yellowed, the trees are naked of leaves and the air holds a serious chill. (Tomorrow's weather forecast promises 1-2 inches of snow.)

"There is a privacy about it which no other season gives you.... In spring, summer and fall people sort of have an open season on each other; only in the winter, in the country, can you have longer, quiet stretches when you can savor belonging to yourself."
