What Nature paints with, in winter.

Lee Ann Eckhardt Smith, a professional writer from the village, is providing to RichmondHub readers a regular series of photographs from around Richmond, along with the poems they inspired her to write. She discovered this winter-wrapped plant on one of her walks through the Kings Grant neighbourhood.
