Prelude To Spring

Funny that I'm still clinging to the last days of winter when spring is already in full swing. But this is something I would like to store in my cyber journal.

It turned out that the sky was overcast there, though the frosts were much thicker.  And I was still thankful for this treat, which is one of our Creator's gifts of beauty.
