The weather outside is frightful
We've had a lot of this lately:
Snow I can handle, and even cold. But the windchills have been rather nasty here, and I haven't braved the temps to take pictures outside. My hat goes off to those professionals who take lovely winter pictures.
This means taking pictures inside, which is a whole other ballgame, actually, especially when one does not have great interior lighting. The best place for pictures in my house is the kitchen in early morning. Thank goodness for sunshine!
And of course, flowers always brighten up the day, no matter how cold.
