Weekly Photo Challenge: Launch-2

Launch of another winter scene, here:

Launch of Frosted Bush

As you can see from the surrounding area, this is not snow, but hoarfrost.

So beautiful.

And the bush is a perilla that grew from seeds I threw away.

Joke’s on me.

And the bush smells wonderfully lovely, like licorice, at all times, even when it is dried up for fall/winter.

Sunday Scriptures – Winter

Do your best to come to me quickly, for Demas, because he loved this world, has deserted me [ . . . ] When you come, bring the cloak that I left with Carpus at Troas, and my scrolls, especially the parchments. [ . . . ] Do your best to get here before winter.

2 Timothy 4:9-10, 13, 21

Weekly Photo Challenge: Winter

I think someone at the top has been reading my mind. Or, possibly (gasp!) reading my site! However it is, I am so thankful for the “winter” challenge! Finally I will unload more of my fun shots of snow in action. Yea!

To show my appreciation, I’ll begin with a couple of snowy smiles:

hi from our house to yours

Hi! From Our House to Yours!

happy rosemary

Happy Rosemary!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Between

Okay, Folks, I’m Declaring Winter.

I have waited and waited. And I’m not a good waiter. So I said to myself, “The next photo challenge will be winter, if I can possibly make it fit the theme.” I did it. These shots will show between, if I have to rewrite the dictionary.

Daffs Between Winter and Spring

This first one shows daffs waiting to bloom, between winter and spring.

In case you wondered, winter is my favorite season. They say I would change my mind if I lived more northerly, where winter is more constant, but I think some of the people who live with snow all the time still love winter, and I think I would be one of them, if it ever came to that.
