'Please won't you be my neighbor?'

It was a beautiful day in the neighborhood when I trudged through the snow to see what I could see. On this tree was the only color I'd seen for blocks. The berry clusters reminded me of parachutes dropping bundles on some blockaded town. . . in the Twilight Zone.

This neighbor has this Swiss flag up all year but now it seems especially fitting for the Olympic extravaganza.

Poor guy can't seem to take his chunks of coal eyes off the door with the snappy red wreath leftover from the holidays. [And yes, I meant to fill up 90% of the photo with a blank wall!]

Visit Mary, our intrepid hostess, for more jewels for Ruby Tuesday.

In the cold winter (and MN is COLD), we cannot be prisoners in the house all season. So we get out and about, being careful to bundle up. Except for the US pickup in the garage, it looks like (my idea of) the Swiss federation, with the Alpine snows on the plains. Nice pictures, nicer neighborhood!

Your berries look like friendly red bombs! The coal-colored snow man looks good with the reds of the post.

Those red berries are startling! I like the snowman. He's a quiet neighbor, I imagine.

Happy Ruby Tuesday ~

Oh that is GREAT! You found eye candy in the snow. What are the chances? Do I sound pessimistic coming from Colorado? :)

Those berries really do look quite weird clustered like mini parachutes in a snowy world! Great shot on this one! And the snowman looks quite an eccentric!

Love the red berries in the snow. I miss the snow we didn't have this year.I shouldn't say that but it is true.
