Porch With Roses


I am thinking of spring.


Of roses



This is the courtyard of a local museum house taken in December. 
We had an oddly warm December.


The rockers are not embedded in the roses I am tricking you with the camera.
I love this porch and have photographed it many times. 
I hope you do not tire of it.

may joy and peace surround you
Olive

  5. Beautiful photos. We had an oddly mild December here in Illinois. Not today. Temperatures are in the teens, and we have a blanket of snow.

  25. Olive -- I love porches, roses and rockers -- what a gorgeous photo!!

    Thank you for your tutorial on comments - I always wanted to add that feature and never took the time to figure it out :)

    Thanks also for the suggestion of Neti Pot -- I am such a chicken about putting anything in my nose, lol. I know it would help though - my NP always suggests it when I go see her for sinus infection 1-2x per year :)
