Once again, superb photo and apt verse

I really like this image.
If shown the photo and asked to identify the month, I’d say January. Geography may not be destiny, but it certainly makes for different seasons. This is a beautiful photo that almost makes me long for the cold again.

So dainty, like jewels.
Such a beauty to this image, paired with your lovely verse it whispers “endurance.”
What a good description of the image. 🙂 ❤
Spangles! Beautiful, the image and the poetry
for us, it was more than rain last week – snow burnt our peach and magnolia blossoms that were out about one month too early!
oh no! So sorry to hear about your peach and magnolia blossoms. Three years ago we had a wet, heavy snow in May. Go figure!

Beautiful photo and verse 🙂
