Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honor...I Timothy 5:17

Yesterday it turned cool...
We had an inch of snow..
Still Box Elder buds grow
Stronger as they rule...
Poetry by me, AJP

It is true we had snow yesterday but most of the white stuff is gone today. Even the tiny windflowers are still blooming after they were completely covered with snow...

Focal length 300 mm
F-Number F/18
Exposure time 1/400
ISO speed ISO- 800
Manual focus
Macro Mode 180-300mm
Camera on Tripod

Update: I just wanted to mention that I did not give the correct identity to this bud to begin with when I posted this page...I called it an Elderberry Bud, but it turns out to be a Box Elder. Sorry about my mistake.
