Frozen

I haven’t been walking down to the lake that often

As the path is treacherously icy;

But when we do make it down there, Ruby is Queen of all she can see.

Splashes of purple

Look like frozen ribbons

Declaring ‘It’s not spring yet.’

No matter how much we pine (get the pun?)

For warmer times, we just have to appreciate what we have.

    Fiona, I LOVE that first photograph of Ruby on the snowy boulder. You’re right…she looks like a QUEEN up there!

    “Looks like frozen ribbons”

    Yes, that’s exactly what they look like. Gorgeous shot!

    “… we just have to appreciate what we have.”

    A-men!

    Thanks so much for sharing the beauty, my friend! 🙂
