Winter does not mean a snowy, cold climate to me.
Where I live, the weather is generally warm or hot.
Winter means there are very brief spells of “cold” weather,
then the temperature rises and becomes comfortable again.
Yes, “cold” is a relative term!
Yesterday, I took a quick break from work and decided to take a walk.
My workplace is comprised of several buildings that surround a natural area.
The grounds are very well kept.
Many people regularly walk the path that surrounds this open area.
It’s a pleasant way to spend a few minutes away from a hectic, busy desk!
I approached beds of roses, and saw they were blooming!
As I came closer to them I was amazed by what I saw!
Bees and bugs abounded!
I was just delighted.
I took a number of photos,
then decided to simply stand still and appreciate all the activity.
Butterflies migrating to other locations quenched their thirst before continuing on their journey.
It was very calming to watch them.
Was it really winter?
Believe it or not, it really was!
