Explore Outdoors ~ winter shadows


The dried stems, twisted leaves, and prickly seed heads of winter weeds are interesting in themselves. But somehow they become dainty works of art when the sun casts their shadows on the snow.

This week, look for shadows of grasses, flowering plants, dried stalks. If the snow melts, don't worry - you can find shadows on sidewalks and packed dirt. What do the shadows look like? The one above looks almost like socks hanging from a clothesline. The shadows below make me think of fireworks shooting into the sky and bursting open.

What will you discover?
