Mummified in icy tomb,

Petrified in snowy case;

Sleeping deep in winter’s womb,

Snuggled down ‘neath quilted lace.

Drowser, nap the cold away,

Tucked and bundled in your bed;

Dream of Spring’s approaching day

As  fairer visions fill your head.


The irony, the irony!  The common name of this plant?  “Snow in Summer”…

    So delicate and fragile looking somehow, in the snow! Thanks for such lovely pics and words for us to think on!
