B is for Benches


The snow in the Northeast sometimes seems to bury entire neighborhoods and discourage people entirely from venturing outside. These benches in a heavily traveled pedestrian area clearly haven't been used in some time. At least since the last snowfall.
The tree trunks in the background are wrapped with Christmas lights, which no one will turn on again before they are taken off the trees in the spring. It's quiet and peaceful in this little courtyard, but spring will be here soon.

It looks cold over there! Here we are all happy the snow is gone for a while and yesterday i saw the first snowdrops! (better than snow, I think - although it is always so pretty, like your benches)

We had quite a bit of snow in Scotland when I was home, enough so that I'm glad it seems to be over. For now! (I think the UK is about to be covered again, though!)

I love the photo - there's something so still and calming about snow that has been left undisturbed!
