Still Sleeping


I don't think these Aspens knew that Spring had arrived. There wasn't a single bud on any of the trees that we saw on our hike over the weekend. Maybe in a few weeks, until then sleep tight.

I think perhaps
They gave their all
Way back when
It was fall!

But don't worry, they'll be budding soon! :-)

Spring seems a distant thing here...

And sweet dreams! This is such a beautiful sight!

Here we have the first signs of autumn...

Wonderful atmosphere, so peaceful.

I love Aspens! So much I planted 3 in our yard. They are not so grand as these, but they've grown quite a bit.

Hope you go back and visit this area in the fall, Randy! :)

Judy said...

It's funny, some of our trees know it's spring and some don't. The snow makes me go brrrr :)

Kathy said...

I'm sure those green leaves will be bursting forth soon.

Still to cold to wake up in the Mtns. Maybe they need rest from the showy leaves they produced in the fall last year.

It is so different! Nice shot Randy.

Sharon said...

Their feet are still sitting in the icy snow!

Ser Vlad said...

Shame on me. I've been missing since a month! But you are as great as always... Have a nice life man! ;)

That's a beautiful view! I'm sure in a few weeks they'll be ready for spring.

I bet in a month that scene will look completely different Randy. I think it looks fantastic in winter mode!

TexWisGirl said...

Esperando o momento certo para acordar

Melissa said...

Yes, I was thinking this photo looks like winter. Although the colors are definitely pretty. I wonder how it would look with the bottom part cropped to make more of a square shape.

Jarart said...

Looks like a peaceful walk in the winter woods!

Randy, the new camera is a Sony SLR a35.I started out with Minolta and had about 6 lenses and when I got a digital I wanted one that would take my AF lenses. Sony was the one that would.

Magpie said...

Yes, sleep tight. We don't want them to put on their spring "clothes" too early and be surprised by another snowfall.

JM said...

What a contrast to the weather here. You can't imagine how hot it was this afternoon.

RedPat said...

It sure doesn't look like spring - they are resting a bit longer!

Eyeliquor said...

Love it!

AGMPRISMA said...

Happy Spring. FELIZ PRIMAVERA RANDY.
Greetings.

Kate said...

Perhaps they are as confused as we humans have been with the capricious weather that has been operating around the globe.

Regina K said...

The high altitude keeps the snow on the ground and tree buds away. Beautiful scene!

Halcyon said...

BUt they look so beautiful in sleeping mode! :)

Chatty Crone said...

Well it is not that way here in GA - can't believe you still have snow. sandie

Michelle said...

I'll send of my spring your way. We are having summer temps!

Teresa said...

Love the look of the bare aspens!

Jack said...

There is no hurry, Randy.

Lynette said...

Randy, sleeping in the winter is a fine thing for anything, anyone, to get to do.

Glad you like the post today. Thanks!

Thérèse said...

Such a good idea!

Hope Spring arrives soon in your part of the world, Randy!

Michaele said...

It is still March. All of us here in Nebraska have to keep reminding ourselves of that. I would love to walk in the snow just one more time this year : )
