During the winter, the cold, muddy, barren rolling hills of the Palouse find rest.
Without the rest of winter,
the rich fertile soil of the Palouse would ‘wear’ out quickly.
But the cold rains and snow soak into the thirsty soil
in anticipation of the coming spring.
A new cycle of planting and growing wheat
to feed a hungry nation will begin soon enough.

generally find the cold darker months of winter a time of renewal.
More time to read and contemplate.
I love that it is often too cold
and wet to do many outside chores.
The one thing the cold and wet doesn’t do
is keep my Pentax K7 quiet, it is always busy.

What about you,
do you enjoy the rest of winter?
