Tired of looking out and seeing snow, snow and more snow? Longing for the lush colors and textures of Spring/Summer? Then why not join me in a bit of Winter daydreaming. Let's close our eyes and indulge our senses in the beauty of gardens past.....
Wild Cherokee Rose in full bloom (can't you almost smell its delicious tea-like fragrance?)
In reality my raised beds lay dormant, hidden in a frozen blanket.
But in my mind's eye, I see them alive and thriving in their full glory. Bursting with....
...Tender Sweet Peas and Spinach,
...Lettuces ready for the salad bowl,
...Potatoes and Onions.
When I open my eyes I see nothing but blinding white.
But if I close them back quickly I can still see....
...the glorious brilliant colors of the Sunrise Petunia,
.... the mouth watering redness of the ripe raspberries,
... and the soft velvety petals of my yellow climbing rose.
Now, isn't that better?
Hold on... warmer, lovelier days are just around the bend. ~Rhonda
