Snowy Sunday = Three Lakes – Three Views

October 25 2020 was a snowy day. The temperature was 27 degrees F. Too low a temp for my Camera, took my phone with me to the three Lakes in Minneapolis because I had been inside for too long…fresh air badly needed.

The snow was falling even though the photos may not show the flakes. iPhone zoom shows the snow falling in this shot above. The earth and sky blended softly by the flakes to my human eyes.

The Goose adventures…they haven’t left yet?

Lake Harriet Rose Garden:

The Roses are put to bed

Tucked in under leaves

The snow falls briskly

from grey clouds

Here stands a last Hydrangea

Bold against the cold

Leaves curling, but yet undaunted

by the rising wind.

Where are the roses

Have they survived?

The Red Drift!

A small sweet surprise

appears snow splashed

as I stoop to capture

a last hurrah.

The delicate shape of

red blossoms’ array

lift above the leaves decay.

My frozen fingers fumble in

The wind that blows snow

around the winter garden

 and drives me away with the cold…

A last look – red petals buried in white snow –

My one regret is that I cannot linger outside

while the last of the roses still have a place of pride.

Thanks for stopping by my kitchen.

Have a peaceful day wherever you may be.

    Are those real people in the tableau? Very interesting, and love the pictures of the flowers covered in snow. As for the Evil Lake Chickens, when you see them in a gang like that, you better run!

    Great photos. We had snow here today too but not too much. There a about 100 geese in the field next to our house, It was a corn field until last Friday when it was harvested. Now the geese peruse the field pecking about looking for corn kernels that fell to the ground. Nice to see the roses still with color even when covered with snow. Stay warm if you can.

      Thanks, so much. The geese here must be fed by people that’s one reason they stick around. The roses were amazing. You too. Let’s hope for a mild winter.
