Today is at least partly sunny, with temperatures reaching about 15ºF above normal.
Since I have little time today, this sunshine was the perfect excuse to jump outside and snap a few photos of the light's effect on the front garden.
A lot more green can be seen out here than is normal for this time of year.
The other wonderful colors of winter are still around though...
...(wonderful only when sunlit maybe?)
Shiny leaves are welcome right now!
So easy to get photos of backlit plants at this time of year, the sun is so low in the sky.
This seems like it's going to be quite a manageable winter here in St. Louis...
