Photohunt: Hope

To me there are few things that I find more hopeful than a stand of with loads of seeds in the winter. They represent new life to come in the spring and they also provide food from the birds foraging for a meal.Snap2Days (my parallel lives hope PH post with Sabine). The home of Photohunters to find other photohunt posts on Saturday. Wishing everyone a happy weekend.

this is a very nice take not only for the theme but for "winter" and seeing it from another perspective, that of what is to come- the promise of spring...

Mar said...

Here we are are just moving into the harvesting season - all our trees and plants have seeded and the little honey eaters are flying around looking for, and bickering over, their mates for the season :)

This is wonderful :)

If birds are able to fend for themselves then there is more hope for people who can do greater things :)

Wishing you the best for 2009 :)
