Sometimes during my lunch break I head over to Whole Foods to shop for food, especially when the weather is less than ideal. Its about 5 blocks, a short jaunt when it is very cold, windy, wet, or snowy. The homes I pass on my way there have all sorts of interesting yards and gardens. These pictures show some lavender(?) peeking out of the recent snow. It was cold sunny and windy, but I think I captured some of the textures in this small corner garden.
