Fabulous flowers

Today has been so beautiful that I have decided to show you my celebration of spring. I thank mother earth for this wonderful display.
Cee has also inspired me with her fun photo challenge this week, appropriately named flowers. I hope you all feel as uplifted as I do by these beautiful plants.

Graceful Bee Orchid


image

Along a shady glade,
A petite purple spire,
Whistfully waves.

Miniature mouths
Melodious,
Like a cherubic
Chorus,
Releasing
Ethereal,
Spangled
Golden dust.

Wild bees
Gleefully graze
On the graceful
Bee orchid.

Innocence

Frail,
Tiny,
Startlingly
Cheerful,
Simple Daisies
Like purest,
Translucent
Votive candles.
Serenading flames,
Flirt innocently
With eyes strained.
Tiny tears
Melt away
As the golden
Lights
Heal our hearts.

Essences of time


image

Whispering  ripples 

Pebbles,  textural muted secret messages

Shivering slates shine

Icy  reflections  melt

In a glistening  golden  haze

Snow

Nature has it’s way of making us slow down. After spending all of last week packing boxes and emptying cupboards we finally saud goodbye for the last time to our beautiful Scottish home. An end to an era and as I drove the Freelander down the road laden with much loved items, dogs and husband I started to think about new beginnings. Arriving here in the Lake district for an overnight stay, the wind began to howl and it’s bitterness sent us into hibernation in our room overlooking the lake. This morning we realised that it was a bad idea to join the travellers trying to get to work in blizzard conditions. Why? It made perfect sense to use the snow’s cathartic effect of cleansing, purifying and preparing for our new exciting beginning ahead. So we’ve done nothing but walk the dogs in the crisp air and snuggle down in our room with cumbrian home baked biscuits and tea. The
perfect book to read…’The Snow Child’ a brilliant, sensitively written first fairy tale novel which warms the heart.
