Yesterday’s Watery Walk

It was raining yesterday…then it was snowing…and it went back and forth like that all day!

My first stop was up the street at the Frank Lloyd Wright masterpiece, the Emil Bach House, where the Cineraria were not only wet, but pretty creepy-looking as well!




The bushes just inside the wrought iron fence were pretty wet also!


At the Gateway Centre, where the grocer is located, the Hydrangeas looked like this:

Water Water-2

And the nearby rose bushes were full of water droplets also, though it was snowing at the time!


Thankfully, in about five hours, Winter makes way for Meteorological SPRING (officially, Spring (the vernal equinox) arrives on March 20th at 6:02 AM CST)…and I am so very happy to ‘shoo away’ all these gray days of Winter!

I’ll be buying a bunch of daffodils tomorrow…that’s how anxious I am to get back to photographing flowers!

On a short walk yesterday…

…around noon, I found this in a neighbor’s garden.  It may bring hope to some who feel there is little or none, or at the least, some cheer, as I feel a Christmas Rose is a gift more precious than gold!

A Christmas Rose, in all it's splendor!

A Christmas Rose, in all it’s splendor!

May you all have a Happy Christmas Day,

and the beautiful blessing of Good Health in 2013!!!

P.S.:  This one’s for you, dear Francis, at Niltsi’s Spirit!!!
