Fabulous banner Laurie!
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others. ~~ Sharon Brown

Great banner Laurie!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

A refreshing sight, and a great reminder of how living things adapt to what nature gives them. You captured wonderful detail in both the snow and the sedum. Thumbs up

Thank you, everyone. Your comments make me smile--you can put into words just what the picture evokes. Smiling

How appropriate that this banner was used today---we just got about 5-6 inches of snow yesterday. I've been getting a good workout shoveling snow yesterday and today.

The banner picture was taken in fall after an early light snow. The sedum was bright green in color so I thought it made an interesting contrast. And I love the texture. I hope the foliage remains green. When I bought the plants this summer, the tag simply said "brilliant yellow flowers" and "attractive foliage." It did not say the foliage was yellow. Later I read that this cultivar (Golddigger) has yellow foliage (I'm not a fan of yellow foliage--except as an autumn color).
