Simply Saturday~ 01/29

Welcome to the first Simply Saturday!  Would you like to participate?  Grab your camera, take a picture of anything that speaks to you of simplicity and home. Your post can be as wordy or as wordless as you like. You decide!  Then come back here and link up. 

We had some beautiful snowy weather this week.  One morning it was a bit foggy and as the fog dissipated it left a trail of crystals.  I grabbed my camera, put on my winter garb, my oldest son’s bulky winter boots and trudged out to the fence row.  All went well until I tripped on the boot lace.  Usually I can regain my balance pretty well, but in boots several sizes to large for me there was no recovering.  Thankfully as I was falling face first I had the presence of mind to hold up my camera.  If you can picture this all in slow motion that is how it felt.  I landed flat on my belly with my chin inches above the fluffy stuff and my right arm extended just above my head. Simple, huh?

ANYWAY this is one of the shots I got before gracefully plunging to the snow. I love the simple beauty that the ice crystals create on this burdock. Who knew pesky burdock could be beautiful!
