It’s a glorious spring day in northern Illinois as I write this post on Saturday…warm, sunny, windy (of course)…absolutely what we’ve been waiting for.  The windows are open, I’ve had a walk around the lake, taken some photos, and sat on a bench just relaxing and enjoying being outside.  Tomorrow is Palm Sunday as well as the latest installment of the Oddball Photo Challenge.  Here’s my oddball for this week.

In the midst of the burgeoning of spring life, it’s difficult to remember the sere life of fall and winter.  This life has its own beauty, however, a beauty easily translated into black and white from the earth tones that are all that is left.  Here and there are found dried stalks, standing alone, refusing to go quietly into that white winter.

Such days of autumnal decline hold a strange mystery which adds to the gravity of all our moods.
