Frozen beauty

Saturday morning was well below freezing.

Passing by the local church, I saw

A riot of colours on the grass.

Riot of pink.jpg

Bouquets of flowers for the departed:

From iced-over pastel pink

Frozen rose.jpg

And bright, frosted

Folds of orange

Orange folds.jpg

To the quieter tones

Of white beauty.
