Photos of the Week – February 29, 2020

This was a week full of people and conferences. I didn’t have any time to venture out with my camera, so I’m sharing a few photos from earlier this month that didn’t fit into other posts. I hope you enjoy this grab bag of winter close-up images.

  1. I love the milkweed seed photos. I plant milkweed for the monarchs here in Virginia. When the seed pods pop open in the late summer, I can be seen running around the yard, grasping for the floating seeds. 😂
