“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky”.- Rabindranath Tagore

It has been one of the coldest January’s on record and we have been housebound again. As I look outside my windows at the pure white snow, I long for color. I dream of spring when the world comes to life again and the earth is reminding us of the beauty of life. The virgin green foliage, the violet lilacs, the buttery yellow daffodils. I know, I’m dreaming as spring is still a long ways away. So instead, I thought I’d create some color to inspire my mind and bring you some life.

Although I’m tired of white, I can never tire of a beautiful white flower like this one in Honduras.

“I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way – things I had no words for”. -Georgia O’Keeffe

    1. Thanks LuAnn. I went on a cold 15 degree run yesterday but at least I got out. It is such a difficult winter this year and it is only January. Oh well….

  1. We are also housebound because of the freezing weather! Looking at this beautiful flower makes me think of warmth on the way!! 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

    1. Yes it has been such a long winter so far and we have so much left, especially here in Minnesota! It is snowing like crazy today but at least it is relatively warmer!

      1. Ugh! We are wimps down here on the Gulf coast so we don’t know what to do with ourselves! 🙂 It’s 52 and I’m bundled up inside!
