What can I say?....bleak days make for bleak photographs
High winds and cold temperatures drove most of us inside yesterday. The forecast suggests that winter is arriving; we'll have nighttime low temperatures in the mid 20's F for most of the next two weeks. That's not unreasonably cold but the only flowers we'll be seeing for a while are the trur winter bloomers.
Still, it's nice to know Milkweeds flourish in the shadow of the Capitol Columns.
