Something other than winter

It is snowing now as I write this, and with the prospect of snow on four of the next five days, I just couldn’t bring myself to post another photo of winter, no matter how white, peaceful, calm, and beautiful it might be.  So I went looking for something with the color of green – the color of spring and hope and warmth.  These calla lilies seemed to fit the bill, even if they do include quite a bit of white!  The gentle arches and curves of the flowers struck me as both delicate and beautiful.  And in this image their colors take on a soft wash because of the shallow depth of field with the photograph. I know spring will yet arrive, even if winter has its tight-fisted grip on us for a bit longer.
