Frosty Buttercups



some mornings are frosty


glistening in gentle morning light


petals opening to recieve


some still sleepy and gently stretching to awaken to the day


sun turns frost to water drops

dressing petals in watery gems of light

and
last night
a Great Gray Owl 
swooshed through the yard to land on this tree, joy.

  3. Bonjour chère amie,

    Vos photos me surprennent et le fascinent énormément.
    Le givre qui recouvre la végétation et ces fleurs qui semblent si fragiles est spectaculaire. On dirait de la confiserie. Je fais cela avec les violettes que je cristallise avec du sucre.
    Quelle chance que de pouvoir surprendre et prendre en photo ce superbe hibou !
    Merci pour ce délicieux billet chère amie...

    Gros bisous ♡

    Ps : En ce moment, je ne suis pas très présente sur les blog... Pardon !

  4. Whoever thought that frosty buttercups could look so exquisite? They do, of course and you and your camera have captured their magic! Large grey owl looks on with unblinking eyes!

  14. Hi,Tammie
    The frost lowers are so pretty! They were captured well by your lens. I am thinking that the yellow flower with drops can be a jewelry brooch!!

  19. Beautiful shots ♥♥♥♥ We have an owl in our woods but we never see him/her. We just listen to it every evening and once in while hear a whisper of wind as it takes flight.
