Flower Photo Friday, unseasonal Flowers

In Detroit, where I now live, there is usually snow on the ground in January, everything is frozen, and there are no flowers in evidence. But this year, the temperatures so far have been unseasonably warm and we have flowers in blossom.

Pansies are perrenials and opportunists--they will flower whenever they can. Flowering Kale is cold hardy--but not usually in January. Dandelions are spring flowers--and either they are confused or we're having a very early spring.

Sidewalk "Fossils:" Squirrel tracks

It could almost be sand, but it's not. It's a sidewalk which contains the footprints of a squirrel. Front feet upper left, back feet lower right.

This is part of an ongoing series I am doing on sidewalk fossils, archeology, anthropology and art. I don't have a title for it, so let me know if you have any good ideas. Posted by Picasa
