Frosted flowers

It’s still too mild and grey for November, so I’m looking back to the end of October

When the frost presented a cheery iced sun;

And a wild pink rose

Covered in cold eyelashes.

Further on, a rose bud

Shimmered with melted hopes and ice —

And I found myself

At the beating heart of nature itself.

  7. Hi Fiona, Frost does make for some great photos, doesn’t it??? We’ve only had one frost so far—with no damage to our roses yet… It’s been fairly mild here also this month…

    Happy Thanksgiving.
    Hugs,
