So Near, Yet So Far

So Near, Yet so far ... by you.

“The plant is so near,
yet so far …” thought Lumi, the Westie .

The plant puzzled me as well,
as to how does it stay put in the currents et al?!

No wonder, that Lumi, the Westie, was wondering, too!

Plant in the water by you.

This is the plant that
Lumi, the Westie,  was trying to reach at.

This week’s theme on the IMAGES & WORDS is SEASONS and as our season right now is SUMMER, hence this photo taken a couple summers ago. Tis the season of no night and endless sunlight … Aaaah.

JANE AUSTEN quote with my photograph suit so well together, methinks.

HYDRANGEA or as it is known in many countries: HORTENSIA

Gender: Feminine
Usage: Ancient Roman, English, Spanish
Feminine form of the Roman family name Hortensius, possibly derived from Latin hortus “garden“.

This photo was taken some good while ago in a garden in Finland and i  still like it very much.  Sorry for not taking part in the PP for such a long time.

The photo is totally untouched, not a thing added, nothing taken away.


Tis for now. Rii xx

One of those March Days …

It was one of those March days
when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold:
when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.

(Charles Dickens).

Ring out the old, ring in the new,

Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.

Alfred, Lord Tennyson, 1850

Have a super new year 2009 in every way!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

“WREATH with Red Berries”

Actually, it is not a ‘wreath’ – I’ve just made it look that – tis a branch of a tree! Take care n do keep well n swell. Rii xx

I wrote these lines summer last year about this picture:

It is the final showtime, showdown
for the flowers and plants
before the onset of autumn…
Nostalgic? Yes, very much so.

I am looking forward to autumn
but tis the winter, the winter,
that chills me right down to me blonde bones
and even blonder marrow!!

Hydrangea flowers tinged with yellow and pink, looking like
the most intricate lace, methinks.

Have a super weekend. Take great care of your great selves. 🙂

P.S.
The photo is totally untouched, so tis as it was…
