Winter is starting to feel like it's just dragging on and on. The outside world has just turned to a white, grey and brown blah. The snow is no longer sparkly and magical, it's drab, monotone and uninteresting. My backyard in the winter is especially lackluster. But, I was drawn to our scraggly juniper trees out back on Saturday. I grabbed my camera and took a few shots. The little berries were bright against the white sky and looked quite beautiful. I even noticed an interesting pattern on the tree bark. Woodpeckers maybe?
These usually unimpressive trees were another reminder to me that inspiration often comes in unlikely places. Have you ever been inspired by something you typically overlook?
