Noticing beauty in the gray season

Frosted rose plant in Beltzer Rose Garden

Here in Minnesota we've entered that gray season, in between winter and spring.  Pot holes cover our streets and all the grime and trash, once covered by pristine white snow, is exposed.  It isn't pretty.

However, if you take another hard look there is often still beauty to be found.  I meandered down to the pond this morning and was stunned by the hoar frost's beautifying effect on the plants.

At times like this one just has to look a little harder to find beauty.  But, while looking, be sure to watch out for pot holes, especially if you're riding a bike!
