We’ve been offline all week as we waited for our new computer. Since I was not able to finish the second installment of America’s Native Bamboo in time for this week’s post, I thought I would share with you some of my favorite winter scenes.
I’ll be back next week with a healthy article entitled: America’s Native Bamboo: Identification & Culture. I hope to see you then.
Until then, enjoy these winter wonderland scenes!

Ice fog coats the Red Cedar grove in this Ozark scene.

I hope you enjoyed this photographic journey across the Ozarks winter landscape and look forward to seeing you again next week!
