68 Dirty white mess



_clouds



Crunchy, funky, slushy, gritty...


_dirty white cut


Once was white is now a mess,


_dirty bush

Gray spattered days, prolonged, a pity.


_dirty buried branch


Muddled senses, longing for color on natures dress.

_crimson gated garden


Remembrances of unfazed glory


_secret garden


Keeping my secret dream garden tended and growing,
Until spring time drowns all that is boring.

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

can't wait til all those flowers come out! Our snow is melted... for now. But I'm sure we'll have more!

Indrani said...

Winter seems to be retreating.

Henrietta said...

Oh I am so SICK of dreary gray icy yucky winter! Spring takes so long to arrive doesn't it? I'm dreaming of gardening and flowers too!

Yakini @ThePrissyMommy said...

Snow, snow, go away - come back another day!!!! :-)

Happy WW!

Rachel said...

LOL -- it does always reach a point, doesn't it, where it's no longer pretty . . . both literally and figuratively.

Hopefully not too much longer!

Texas Type A Mom said...

One of my pet peeves about snow is when it gets so dirty.

Sukhmandir Kaur said...

I suppose the slush is a promise of spring to come. How punctuated your seasons are. Ours fluctuate from day to day, never know for certain what's around the corner except for change.

Simply Being Mommy said...

Can't wait until spring!

Candy said...

We have that nasty dirsty salty slush here too, gives me hope that spring is near!

Momstart said...

The garden is beautiful, I hope it gets warm soon. We're looking at a possiblity of snow next week

Sara said...

The garden is beautiful! That snowy mess will disappear in no time.

Marilyn (A Lot of Loves) said...

That's the problem with snow - starts out pretty, ends up yucky.

AVCr8teur said...

It'll be green soon and your lovely garden will be rediscovered again.

Annie said...

Our snow is finally melting!! Now we have a house full of muddy footprints :YAY:

alicia said...

Mrs. Marine said...

The last two pictures are beautiful! Snow is so pretty when it first falls and its so bright white! Then it gets dirty and becomes ice-mud...

Binky said...

LOVE the last pic the most. hehehe looking forward to beautiful colours ;)

Buckeroomama said...

I have to show these pics to my son. He has this romanticized view of snow, that it's all pristine white and soft and fluffy. :)

Happy WW!

Liz said...

Hope the snow will go away soon.

LindsayDianne said...

I'll take the latter! Goodness that looks cold.

Connie said...

Your garden is STUNNING!

PippaD aka Mummy said...

Horrid snow meaning your garden isn't as beautiful as in spring ;)

Night Owl Mama said...

ack I hate that black snow. if only it were so easy as a photo to find spring

Life Ramblings said...

The garden is stunningly beautiful. hope spring will come soon.

Sparkle said...

Since we live in Southern California, you would think we'd have a gorgeous garden year round. But alas, my human has the blackest of black thumbs, so it's less than artistic out my window!

WonderWhyGal said...

I just want the snow to melt enough that I can deep clean my Alpaca barn. It's killing me to know that there is tons of poo out there to scoop but too frozen for me to get to it.

My neighbor has a huge garden and he is eager for me to get the job done too. He uses my Alpaca poo to fertilize his gardens.

Dina @ 4 Lettre Words said...

Looking forward to Spring, too! LOVE that last capture.

Frantic Holly said...

We have been so lucky this year but I totally understand how you feel. The gray mess needs to go!

blueviolet said...

We'll make it through the messy stuff in order to get to the beautiful!

BusyWorkingMama said...

I think the cold, dreary winter just makes me appreciate the lovely spring/summer/fall months. Of course, it is supposed to be near 70 in Atlanta this weekend so I really can't complain! Have a lovely day!

Alicia said...

what a beautiful garden! Can't wait till Spring :)

LadyD said...

What a lovely flower garden. Spring is just around the corner! :)

SnoopyGirl said...

Your flowers looks lovely! The promise of Spring will be here before you know it!

Carol said...

Gorgeous garden! Something beautiful to look forward to!

Cheeseboy said...

I am impressed. Great poem Grammy. Can't wait for spring!

OLLIE MCKAY'S ~ A Chic Boutique said...

Ahhhh. . . .beautiful garden!! And the snow mes??? It'll soon be gone! When we lived in Maine years ago, we used to still have dirty snow drifts on the side of the driveway until May 1st!!

Shawn Ann said...

EWWWW I've seen enough snow to last me a long time! But I do LOVE the garden pictures!

Colleen (Shibley Smiles) said...

Not a fan of the white mess but love the spring photos LOL

Sam said...

The gardens are beautiful! I can't wait to see grass and flowers again.

LeeAnn said...

Great photos, and cute poem! We don't get snow here, but I am soooo ready for winter to be done!

Happy WW!

Kas said...

Once again thanks for the linky.

Shannon said...

That was just lovely! Is that what you call a haiku? Not sure.

I always love visiting your WW!

LadyD said...

Thank you... I use Photoshop Elements8. Thanks for stopping by!

Apryl said...

Ah, dirty snow. Seen so much of that in my life. I much prefer your gorgeous pictures of Mother Nature's spring and summer decorations brightening our days!

Aramelle said...

I thought we were on our way to the dream garden (though, the garden will still just be a dream for me!), as we've had a few weeks of gorgeous weather. Now, we're having storms and have snow forecasted everyday for the next week. Ick!

Anne - Mommy Has to Work said...

we have no snow, but am still longing for spring

Skunkfeathers said...

Winter is in retreat, but has yet a counterattack or two left to 'spring' afore 'spring'. Be ready. My Corps de Shovel stands ready to do battle.

As for those scammer emails...I've wasted 11 years playin' widdem now. Saved me from having to get a life ;-)

Danielle said...

Beautiful garden!! I am so sick of the dirty snow too!!

Kathy said...

It was so nice here today that I have to be happy that this ugly snow and ice will be gone soon!

Lindsey V said...

Poetry with words and pics! Just lovely! Thanks for taking us on the journey!

dogsmom said...

Your poetic soul is showing.

jayayceeblog said...

That's the perfect poem to go with your very graphic images of the yucky side of winter into lovely spring!

The White Whimsies said...

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. I am following yours now. Have a great day!

Shop with Me Mama said...

Oh how I yearn for Spring and flowers and nicer weather!!! LOVE your garden picture!!!!

Mames3 said...

Hi... Love Your Spring Pictures

We are having unusually warm weather here in SC. It has been in the 70's. It just doesn't feel right. Faythe, I know you are tired of the snow. So I'm sending some of our warm sunshine your way!

Will said...

We just got a bunch of snow and rain that we have been waiting a month and 1/2 to arrive. Not so bad to see after worrying about a drought all this time. I think I have said it before, but your garden is certainly beautiful!

Julia S. said...

No snow in my place,but it's very cold..you have a lovely garden.
Snow soon will be over..

Andro Vids said...

Have a lovely evening Faythe :)
