Inkling of Sprinkling

Red Rose in snow

Winter’s Breakfast Treat

Nighttime dusting of snow

Powdered Sugar


Winter just keeps showing up overnight and leaves us with traces of snow to wake up to. Poor blooming plants are not appreciating the nighttime visits. Thankfully it melts quickly at morning light.

Ring Around The Rosy

Wedding on the beach, isle of rose petals

A gardener named Rosy

Often dreamed to mosey

Down an isle strewn in petals

But she wasn’t a gal who settles

For just one posy


( Smile! 😊Just a bit of humor for today! )

Haiku Horizons Weekly Challenge Week#208 Prompt: Vanish

Our Pacific Northwest has been enjoying an unseasonably mild February this year causing flowers to bloom early and folks to feel as though Spring has come. However this morning Winter decided to let us all know that it was still hanging around by sending us a flurry of big heavy wet snowflakes. causing our lovely early bloomers to get covered in white. Thankfully the snow didn’t last long and the sun came out to melt it all away.

I recently read an article stating how the beautiful color of Prussian Blue was created. This beautiful color was the result of an accident! A great reminder that sometimes mistakes we make can be for good.
