A different kind of white





























In the middle of summer, when it's hot and the garden is full of colour, my white flowers make me think of the snow that is going to appear on the other side of the calendar.














Silly of me to think that.  The white of winter, so cold, silent, and lifeless, has nothing in common with summer.

  2. Lovely photos, the last one in particular makes me feel as if I could scoop up the snow, but alas that would spoil it.

    1. Thanks, Rosemary, the snow is so lovely when it is untouched and smooth; quite magical looking too.

  4. Beautiful pictures! I do wish we got a little more snow than we do here (which is maybe a couple days a year). A brown Christmas is just not the same!

    1. I agree about the brown Christmas. We almost had one this year, but luckily the snow fell just in time and has stayed with us since!

  5. The other day, I finally got the heart shaped white flower. ( which is called "Taitsuriso" in Japanese) Can't wait to see the lovely flowers like yours!

  7. A lovely photo of the snow, I am surprised that I miss it so much, used to complain constantly when I loved with it.

    1. Hi Deborah, isn't that always the way... It's only when something is gone that we realize how much we miss it, part of the human condition I guess. Nice to meet you and thank you for stopping by :)
