Today's Flowers amid wintertime

Flowers from an earlier, more colorful time on my little slab garden. Sweet remembrance as we now have snow on the ground from a storm yesterday.

In the bleak midwinter, frost wind made moan,
earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
snow had fallen, snow on snow,
snow on snow, in the bleak midwinter, long ago.
Christina Rossetti

See more lovely flowers at Today's Flowers. It will brighten your day and tempt you to join in. Happy Monday!

By far one of my favorite winter colors. I love the words. This is a beautiful arrangement. James Taylor's has to be my favorite! Happy belated Thanksgiving.

Your beautiful flowers are a fresh sight on a snowy winter day. Beautiful music, too. Loreena McKennitt is one of my favorites. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Hi, Noni!
You have a small, but wonderful garden, at this time, because the winter is coming.
Great post!
