( musings of a 'HO-HUM HOUSEWIFE' )
Alcona county winter,
Dearest Joey, I always think that the test of a really good garden is whether it stand up to scrutiny in the winter. Does it have a defining bone structure which will hold everything together when the fullsomeness of spring and summer arrive?Does it have a narrative...a beginning, a middle and an end? And, does it have arteries which lead and pull you on through the whole? Flowering plants are pretty distractions but, for me, a satisfying garden or landscape requires none of these.Happy Weekend!
Hey Joey, that looks like a Wyeth painting :-) Gorgeous!
I always love how you find quotes that work so well with your photos, but I think I've told you that before. I know it's only January still, but I think I'm getting tired of the bone structure of winter. I must be getting older and more cantankerous.
Joey, I do love to see the bones and structure of my garden, but I sure wish they would begin getting their colorful clothes on real soon!Eileen
Well said, dear Edith. Delighted to have you back ... yes, winter bones are good.(Rest well, dear friend, no recipes this post :)As I had hoped, dear 'fine-eyed' artist, Carolyn. Thank you.Thanks, Lindalou. Hold on, dear Michigan friend. It won't be long ... remember, February is short, and March, well ...Bones are good, Eileen, and before we know it, spring will be wearing her finest!
A lovely pastoral portrait, Joey, but I'm feeling much like Gatsby's Gardens--I'm ready to see something more colorful than bones very soon:)
This photo looks like it belongs in a frame or, at the very least, on the cover of a Christmas card! So beautiful are the bones of winter.
It's wonderful to travel the countryside (world) via our garden friends blogs as it allows us to experience so much more than our own backyards! Your scenery is remarkable.
Sorry to make you sad, Rose. Between winter and spring, I too patiently wait but, in the meantime, I try to focus on the beauty. Thank you, dear friend. It's fun to share our thoughts.Shirley, thank you. I'm in awe of gifts that each day brings ... a simple barn and heavy snow ... many pass and never see the beauty.Thank you, Whimiscal Cat. So enjoyed your comment for that is what sharing is all about.
Beautiful composition & processing. This would make a lovely greeting card Joey!
And here's a lovely photo that best represents our little Antarctica a.k.a. Michigan.All I need is a cup of hot chocolate and a roaring fire to make my day complete.Stay warm Joey.
Joey, love your photo, very nostalgic and makes me feel all warm inside. Great words from Andrew Wyeth and I do love his work.
The romance, the titillation, the anticipation. Bones, lovely bones.
Thank you, dear Kala! More snow to come ... more cards!Hold onto your hat, dear Marysol ... this might be the BIG ONE! Stay warm ... In my thoughts, must write you a note.Thanks Di. Do hope you are feeling better :)How poetic, Linda! Love it ... keep them coming :)
What a description! Wow...the bone structure to be filled up later...The painting is gorgeous!
Thank you, dear Kanak. Not a painting ... my creative photograph.
