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.
