Boiling Springs on the Big Piney River in Texas County, Missouri, 1/31/15.





Rock Bridge State Park, south of Columbia, Missouri. The boardwalk also leads to the Devil’s Icebox. I went there many times during my final year of college to sit on the steps and escape the heat.





Blue buntings in our back yard. I see this and wish for warmer weather again.

Hummingbirds from our front porch. I was amazed the camera caught the one on the right’s wing. Again, it makes me wish for summer.





The package of bulbs said tulips. I was pleasantly surprised by these flowers when they bloomed the following spring. These were from two years ago.
