Transformation: Weekly Photo Challenge

Transformation – the moment when the roses finally succumb to winter – one fleeting moment when their beauty is captured in frost, before the subsequent warmth of the the sun’s rays melts their glazing, arresting the rosebud in its prime and turning the delicate pink petals of the bloom into a brown drooping mass.

About Sandra

I used to cruise the French waterways with my husband four or five months a year, and wrote fiction and poetry. Now I live on the beautiful Dorset coast, enjoying the luxury of being able to have a cat, cultivating an extensive garden and getting involved in the community. I still write fiction, but only when the spirit moves me - which isn't as often as before. I love animals, F1 motor racing, French bread and my husband, though not necessarily in that order.

  9. Oh wow, I know the frost means death to the beautiful flowers but they look so magical all covered in frost or snow.

    excellent photos – the bottom right hand one is so moody – oooo la la – and the frosty ones – so purdy….


I'd love to hear your views; it reassures me I'm not talking to myself.
