Our prompt for today in Picture Winter from Tracey Clark…

“Promise and possibility might be intangibles, but you know that feeling when you see something that fils your heart brimming.  Be on the lookout today for something that speaks of promise or possibility–something hopeful, touching, soul stirring.  Something that reminds you that anything is possible and we have everything to hope for.”

This is a shot of a eucalyptus branch on my kitchen window sill.  I was at Whole Foods this morning and once again found myself in the floral area of the store.  I can’t help it.  I am a sucker for flowers.  Whenever I go to the farmer’s market I end up coming home with my treasure bags of produce and a lovely little bouquet for the kitchen table.  Having flowers in the house is something I love.  It feels comforting to me…not sure why.  I especially love it in the winter.  When the view outside my window has turned to the color of a b&w photograph it feels good to have some color inside.  Something that is alive.  It is a reminder of the season of green that will come after this season of gray.  A reminder of the possibilities to come.
