Early morning light.
Amidst darkened scapes and twigs,
winter flowers bloom.

Nice touches…but wishful thinking?
Not wishful thinking. I posted those flower pictures on the day I took the photos. We have a microclimate where I live, which although wet at the moment, is seasonally at least a month ahead of the rest of the UK. I even have a palm tree growing most robustly in my garden!
Palm trees!!! Amazing!
Lovely work and carrying a little of that optimism we need in the depths of winter.
It’s so beautiful the weather here today that it has even tricked my huge resident bumble bee out of hibernation in the rockery. I wanted to take a photo of him, but he wouldn’t keep still for a moment in his excitement over the sunshine!
Yes, optimism is good in January 🙂
Wow, that’s an old post. Glad you discovered it, Cindy. Those flowers were a delight to me, as they really brightened last year’s bleak mid-winter.
