TODAY'S FLOWERS # 81

I don't know what kind of plant/flower this is.


The snow-covered 'ground' surrounding it, is actually the water of a large pond covered in ice.

While I may be winter weary, there is something about weeds and wildflowers in the snow that get me all excited! Great shots.

It is interesting that the "flower" is in the ice-covered pond.

LOVE this! I'm getting weary, do you think it will EVER be spring again and this little baby will bloom once more? Sigh!

I don't know what the plants are either, but I do love the contrast of these plants against the snow!

Denise: It won't be long and we will have water instead of ice.

Patty said...

Hard to believe tomorrow is March first all ready and the 14th we have to change our clocks again. Our snow has still not melted away. Ground is still pretty much covered.

This is a lovely little find here and capture in the ice Denise! It's like saying (here I am) ha!
Hey, thanks for your sweet comments. I just realized the post you wrote concerning the tsunami is in my draft..(I do that sometimes) I feel some of the older archive pictures will do better justice if I take the negatives and have them burned on a disk)..my goal!! So thank you; looks like we're in the clear! Close call as the earthquake in 1960 generated an awful disaster here- completely bending parking meters!! I so appreciate your visit and concern!! Big hug and blessings! Regina-
