Beautifully expressed .
[…] Purple Dawn. […]
Oh, isn’t that just the truth? Lovely.
Reblogged this on Sabura.
Great job bringing out the colours of the sky against the silhouettes of the trees.
Lovely photograph, the colours are beautiful.
Sunrises and sunsets are my favorite things to view. They are gifts from God!
What a great expression, I had never thought of the sky “flowering” – but so apt given all the amazing colors around this time of the year.
Love your photo – sunsets are one of my favorite things to paint – watercolor is the perfect media to express the beauty of the glowing colors in the sky.
so lovely! and yes, it true that the sky and sun are our flowers of winter – where would we be without them? lost in the void!
Absolutely beautiful! 🙂
Yes, it’s beautiful:)
So true – gorgeous “sangre de cristo” sunsets for which our mountains are named, often tinting the snow in lovely subtle blending of all the colors in the red/purple/orange range of the spectrum
What a lovely expression about nature’s canvas..great skies in the winter.
Thank you (yet again) for sharing your flowering sky
I really look forward to your daily postings
So true! Beautiful sunrise!
Lovely thought and photo! Blessings, Natalie 🙂

Lovely flowering! Best wishes for new year!
Please can we have a LIKE button? I like this.
i love that idea
I have been taking my daughter to work at the break of dawn and have been blessed with many sunrises like this. It is a great way to start the day. And I also like the idea of a like button – you have many beautiful pictures and poems.
Lovely observation as well as photo. The sky definitely sustains me when the other colors are subdued.
I don’t believe in perfection, but that is perfect. The harmony of the image and the poem staggered me, just for a second. A second is a long time.
Beautiful capture! 🙂
words of beauty, speaking to my heart, love it!
Beautiful photo and lovely lines.
gorgeous colors and texture
Beautiful (words and photo) 🙂
Yes it is!
Takes me back to different places and times in my life. Beautiful.
Being a hobby gardener – loved your description of the sky as the flowers of the winter.
The simplicity is beautifully sublime.

So simple, yet such a beautiful thought and picture!

Beautiful picture; beautiful words. Thank you.
I love this thought and will look at the sky differently because of it.
Wow, so gorgeous.
I always love your posts, but this one particularly sings to me during this long winter!
Thank you Mary.

Eloquent and simple…great post! Thanks for your like on “Prosaic”!
Very nice! Thanks for stopping by my blog and the liking on ‘In Souvenir’.
I agree entirely, and, having recently moved to the countryside from London, I would observe that you see more of the sky there – no large buildings or light pollution
Wonderful colours; so peaceful.
Thanks for liking Spring Tonic.
Lovely to see your pictures and thanks for visiting my blog!
Wonderful photo and poem.
