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.

  5. 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!

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

  7. 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.

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

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

  31. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  32. 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.

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

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  36. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  52. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  53. we have no snow, but am still longing for spring

    ReplyDelete
  54. 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 ;-)

  63. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  64. 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!

    ReplyDelete
