Winter's Flowers


they grow 
they build
within the chill of the night



offering a sight for our delight


 frosty fur 
it appears to be
yet look up close
what do we see


crystals of ice
like flowers


yes winter and spring have begun to mingle
doing their annual dance
some days they frost and snow like winter
other days we glimpse green grass

  31. Hola Tammie,
    Que bellisimas imagrenes de un invierno congelado, creo que cada estación tiene su encanto. A mi me gusta el otoño. Acá en mi cuidad Santiago de Chile no tenemos esos paisajes congelados al menos en mi cector, es placer admirar otro punto de vista.

  32. Another batch of magnificent ice photos, Tammie. I know you love all the seasons equally so I won't say I hope spring hurries on its way for you (as I wish it would for us!!!!) but I hope you are keeping warm and enjoying winter's last dance.

  34. Amazing shots. Those ice crystals look like perfectly formed leaves. I love the way you have captured some rainbow colours in that fourth shot. The last one shows such astonishing shapes too. Glorious! The beauty of winter!
