Mid January can be really dreary. There are days when the cloud cover creates a gray landscape without a hint of color to delight our eyes.
But, there are days, usually cold, that the clarity of the azure blue skies allows the sun to shine brightly down to the earth adding color to the landscape. These are the days, that despite the cold, are beautiful with the sun low in the sky, the trees cast long blue violet shadows across the light snow cover.
Soon the apple trees will be pruned in preparation for the spring blossoms and late summer apples.
Best wishes everyone as we look to spring.
