Winter bouquet (or bokeh)

We’ve hardly had any snow this year – only a smattering to cover the ground for a day or two.

No matter how little – I always feel as if I’ve won the lottery when it begins to snow.

The white petals have a way of transforming life into something softer, more golden.

The bare bones of flowers look like twinkling stars;

A birdhouse becomes a cheerful red hat with white trimming;

And even a weathered post becomes a silver-haired object of beauty.

(Yes – Mum and Dad: Just like you guys!)

  1. I do love the snow, too, as you’ll see on my post for the day — although it isn’t something we see that often in Seattle, we do have it now and for the next few days! Your photos are superb as always!! Hope you have a great week!

  4. It just started snowing here about an hour ago. There is not a lot expected but I am looking forward to going out for a walk with Dodger in the quiet beauty. Your pictures are, as usual, lovely.

  6. Loved the warmth in the second photo from the top. Great snow shots Fi! Isn´t it funny how we bitch when there is snow and we bitch when there isn´t snow…we´re never satisfied but there is something special when mother nature is wrapped in her winter blanket…resting peacefully in the dark of winter…have a great day my friend!

  12. Love that second shot…it’s fun to get close-in and see the world a little differently. And I’m with you on loving snow, when the flakes start falling my mood always improves. The packed ice on the sidewalks after the snow’s been here a week or so? That’s a different story!
