365 challenge: 198 New

Yesterday when I was out in my garden, I was just sitting watching my surroundings. Only brown leaves, not a flower in sight *we did have a bush with some interesting flowers until a couple of days ago, when my 3year old decided to pick them all to make surprice soup for me and her older brother..*.

Anyway, in the middle of all the browns and greys of my winter garden, I saw one branch of green new leaves. A promise of the times to come.

It really cheered me up.

Gosh, Mia, you're lucky to have any green in your garden. Nothing but snow and brown here...

Your shot is full of promise for things to come...

green and gorgeous...reminds me of a dragon fly with it's shape...still giggling about your soup story--so cute (and thoughtful too!)

Spring Sprung early Sproinnggg.
I think this challenge is making us all see wonderful things we would have otherwise missed. Caught it in one Mia and I agree "New" is the best title.

Isn't it funny how a burst of color can really lift your mood in the winter? Really nice find!

Man förundras hur en del "överlevare" klarar sig.
Jag har haft en blå vädd som har blommat hela hösten precis vid entrén.Nu har vi 15 minus men sista blomman är fortvarande blå!Men nu måste det vara slut.
Ha det gôtt!

Härligt foto, ser att jag kan skriva på svenska här. Så jag gör så.
Gillar färgen på lövet som får en att tänka på våren.

Hej Mia!

Vilka härliga foton du visar.
Fick tips om din länklista till höger, med bidrag till 365-utmaningen. Hur gör du den länklistan? Var ju mycket praktiskt!

Mvh

Nice picture. Hope the spring is coming soon here in Sweden, but i suppose we must wait until march at least.
