Winter blossom...


a lone prairie primrose
nestles
deep under winter's warm night cap
like a downy white comforter
he invites you to sleep
sleep
sleep
for when you awaken
a spring full of jewels
will welcome you hither
as garlands of sweet things
will flourish your hemline
and the sun will pull magic
from an Earthly black top hat
VOILA...
it is springtime
again
at the Pink Chateau!


OK, it's only 6 inches, but it's still a beautiful pain in the arse...right!
But yesterday something happened while I was chasing the snow shovel around my driveway...
a neighbor out on his snow tractor drove in and offered to help.
WOW...
That never happens...
He introduces himself, he's lived there as long as I've been at the Chateau and we've never met, however, when the shop was in the house, his wife was here often.
But,
it was the comment he made as he drove out of sight...
(I know, a little cheesy)
Merry Christmas!!!

Now that one little gesture made my year...there is still hope left for humanity
at least that's what I want to believe...


THANKS DENNY!!!

Cheesy? Maybe a little, but a wonderful gesture just the same. What a great way to end the year and perhaps a harbinger of good things to come in 2010.

I am a believer and I have to see my glass as half full. I think there is more good in the world... we just hear more about the bad. Great shots from where I sit :)

From someone who does not have to deal with the snow "What a beautiful sight"! What a great
neighbor to have.
