Pass It On


Have you had a kindness shown?
Pass it on.


'Twas not given for thee alone,
Pass it on;


Let it travel down the years,
Let it wipe another's tears,
'Til in Heaven the deed appears,
Pass it on.

~ Henry Burton ~

Yes, I'm still celebrating these ridiculously beautiful and ethereal clematis seed heads.  I hope you're not tired of seeing them yet :)
Now that my garden has been cut down and bundled up for the winter, I'll be taking my cue from Mother Nature and doing a little hibernating myself, posting only on Monday, Wednesday and Friday until the Spring.

    1. Thanks Connie, yes a certain "zen" is important when proofreading, good luck, I can't wait to read the finished result :)

  4. Tired of those evocative images? Not a chance. Post them till they fade to just a few shreds, Rosemary; that's the way life goes.

    1. Thank you Lee, every time I go outside they've morphed into some new shape, changing with the wind. They keep me coming back for more :)

  5. Great message and lovely seed heads.
    I wish that my garden was all bundled up - still have some lavender to trim, climbing hydrangeas to cull, and an Armandii Clematis that has grown like a jungle to cut down, but I shall get there eventually.

    1. Thank you Rosemary, I love this time of year because I feel in no rush to do anything. I do the cutting down now because I don't like all that yucky mess in the spring. The birds that have been flitting through my flowers looking for bugs and seeds seem more than annoyed that I managed to get at least this one task completed.

  9. Words. What words do I use to express these images? Rosemary, you've outdone yourself here. I got lost in the soft textures. The first one is powerful and I'd frame it. It's not easy capturing plants and giving them "personality" but you do it everytime. Thank you for sharing your art.

    1. You're so sweet Chris, thank you :) Flowers just "speak" to me, they capture my imagination and grab me by the heart.

    2. It shows. They are not easy to make "pop" like you do. Your shots carry subtle feelings. I am learning to connect better with the plant photography and learning lots from your work:)

  10. I'm your biggest fan Rosemary!
    Never bored with any of your posting (so far...) Wish I could be like you.
    I don't know about you but your great shots of this clematis seed gives me sense of calmness just looking at it. Therapeutic in a way, almost sleepy LOL!
    You go get yourself hibernated girl and come back when you are up to it :)

    1. Ash, I'm such a big fan of yours as well, and I'm so glad we got to meet each other through our blogs. I love the magic you find in your plants, the blossoms, the beauty... As you'll see we're about to go into winter here, so there's not as much variety to photograph, that's why I'm only posting 3 days a week. Get ready to see lots of pictures of white snow!

  11. Your posts are always filled with such beauty and thought-provoking, inspiring messages. You definitely have the "magic touch" with words (and your photos are amazing too)! I really like the unique way you have captured these feathery seed heads. (I really think you should write book about life lessons from your garden:)

    1. Thank you Tammy, it's truly the way I see flowers (and nature in general.) Nature is my story-teller. Your photos convey the same thing to me, you do much more than just take a picture, you go further and capture what "you" see; respect, passion, a love for all the birds (and animals) you bring to your blog.
