I said goodnight to everyone, told them to drive safe, and left the building.
Then I said goodnight to everyone again as they walked by me standing in the icy snow with my snap shot camera. I was determined to get ONE pretty shot of the ice coated branches in the waning light.
It’s a new year and I’m back in the office after a long winter’s nap. It is COLD today, which is why I saw the seasonal curling of my rhododendron leaves. Normally I would panic and think the plant was dying, but I’ve learned a thing or too from my Organic Gardening stock searches.
Rhododendron leaves curl up into tight little cigars to reduce the amount of exposed leaf surface—it protects the leaves from drying winds. The editors told me this is called “transpiration”. I took a couple of pictures of the curled leaves, then I too curled up tight and headed to work.
