Leaves on Leather © Lynn Wiles 2021
I’ve been collecting specimens for my sketchbook and the honey locust leaves and spines fell upon my iPad cover. Wondering how long it will take to fully feel the relief of a new president and vice president after four long awful years.

2020 on Wheels © Lynn Wiles 2020
Imagine my surprise when this car pulled up next to me as I was waiting at a red light. I’ve tried to conceal the company name, but googled it when I got home. They are a local company that makes tests for influenza and COVID-19. Not to make light of this year in any way. May the new year eventually get better.

The great melting is happening outside. This image reminds me that solitude can be beautiful.
My annual Christmas Eve party, with family and friends, (held on zoom) was very nice.
Wishing everyone a peaceful, safe, holiday time.

Stuck © Lynn Wiles 2020
It’s been so cold that the snow hasn’t melted off the door or even the outside light. Meanwhile, the snow plow got stuck on Thursday and no one has come back to plow or treat my street. Like the snow on the door, I am stuck.

We had a very mild winter last year, so imagine my surprise discovering that my very long legged dog was afraid of the foot of snow that fell last night.

Wet Indigo © Lynn Wiles 2020
My Baptisia (false indigo) leaves after the rain. The blue flowers are now long gone, but it is interesting how the leaves turn a bluish gray.

Blooming Escargot © Lynn Wiles 2020
My escargot begonia has sprouted flowers for the first time, while something seems to be nibbling on the leaves.

December Blossoms © Lynn Wiles 2020
Cherry blossoms should bloom in the spring. I noticed on another year that those that blossomed in winter were bare in the spring. That was sad as they are something to look forward to after a long winter.
