Treacherous frost lurks
Tender shoots defy the chillHardy rosebuds thrive.
We received our "prompt" word for January at midnight Wednesday. Earlier in the day I was in the garden checking the rosebushes. We had a little frost the night before and I was concerned. All the bushes looked healthy- even hints of new growth were evident.
When we got our word I thought of our rose garden immediately and scribbled down my thoughts. Today I took some photos of the new buds. I incorporated one of the buds into a winter scene that I shot 2 weeks ago in Minneapolis. I wanted to portray the idea that not only can Nature survive some pretty harsh conditions but that she indeed can begin anew and thrive.
My next step is to portray this image as an art quilt.
