Cosseted Roses in the Heart of Winter …


 

At long last I decided to take time out of my busy schedule and show signs of life in the fabulous WP world … , and try to catch my unfulfilled dream,the dream of my life …  Well,you know,there is a very sociable word,a word with many extensions and spreading branches,but so very frustrating,I’m afraid … Is “catching up” hard on you,my friends ? How do you manage to take control of the situation? There must be a strategy ; I have noticed that most WP bloggers leave simply a “like”,or a two-word phrase-comment …,while I usually leave the story of my life … Ah,enough of my rambling,let me show you my protected Pink Roses …

 

~ Reading Heaven’s Signs … ~

 

It was a quiet winter day,my Pink Roses were happily basking in the warm sun,when storm clouds started gathering and presaging heavy storms … Then,on the spur of the moment,I decided to save them in my Glass World,where they are warm and safe now …

 

Rhapsody in Blue & Green ...

Rhapsody in Blue & Green …

 

Have you ever wondered why the sky is so Blue ?

I asked why  … ,and Lord Rayleigh gave me the answer … But,a cloud does not know why it moves in a certain direction and at such a speed… It feels an impulse … this is the place to go now and here it is above my garden,and in the ultimate Thule …

Soon,there was a storm brewing up,heavy rain was nearing and I wanted to keep the pink roses safe in my Glass World until Spring arrives and set them free …

Threatening Clouds above the Garden ...

Threatening Clouds above the Garden …

true stories from my garden in the middle of winter

true stories from my garden in the middle of winter

Rushing the Pink Roses into my Glass World ...

Rushing the Pink Roses into my Glass World …

The procedure started at a rapid pace and soon ...

The procedure started at a rapid pace and soon …

 

How beautiful they look in my Glass World and away from the furious winds and the violent rain storms …

~ Please behold them in my Glass World until Spring arrives … ~

Protected in a Beautiful Glass World ...

Protected in a Beautiful Glass World …

 

Now,I can only hear them happily whispering and saying that they are looking forward to Spring …

Rosy Thoughts in my Glass World ...

Rosy Thoughts in my Glass World …

 

“True” Garden Stories in the middle of Winter … and under the Sky,the same Sky We all Live …

Oh,come on Doda,stop being childish ..

 

~ ❤ A big Thank You my WP friends for your comments & likes  ❤ ~

      • Dear Doda,
        I don’t dislike winter. It has given me the time to do other things like research, writing, cooking, I also been doing a little snowshoeing and aerobics. Winter is also very beautiful, peaceful and quiet.
        I love the color, shape and texture of your beautiful roses. Again, Much love💝

    As an artist, blogging is an excellent medium for me to show work and my live in photos..but indeed it needs some ‘time management’ as to not let it overtake other things in life. But please, keep on inspiring us Doda…xoxox Johanna
