Spring. It’s coming!
I enjoyed watching the bare barberry (sounds like a name for a distillery) branches light up in reddish brown tones when the sunlight shone through the trees. The contrast with the snow was delightful, providing a nice background. I was very careful to not smoosh my face too close – those thorns are sharp!
I have included these tiny berries in my daily shoot twice before today. I first took notice of them – the only remaining berries – nineteen days ago when they were encased in ice. I can’t say that I noticed them before. Since starting this project, I check on them almost every time I walk by.
