Patience, my dears...

We've had some gorgeous clear days and even more clear nights.
We had a friend come out from the city to stay a few days and 
we stayed up into the wee hours playing cribbage.
A few times during the course of the evening we stepped outside
and Derrek remarked that the sky looked like a planetarium!
The sky so black and the stars like fairy lights strung above us.
In the morning the van windows were painted frosty masterpieces...
 I don't know what phenomenon is at work to develop such intricate designs...
 ...but life's beautiful little  mysteries astound me over and over!
 Icy chrysanthemums etched in silvers and greys...
 Whirls of cloud shapes...
 ...the sun comes out to enhance the hues and add some sparkle...
 A little warmth from my mitten and I can create a tiny porthole to the sunrise!
 Meanwhile, inside the house I'm enjoying a dreamy summer bouquet...
 ...perks from working at a flower shop...
 ...leftovers from last week...
 ...still gorgeous for at least a few more days...
 ...summer will come before we know it...
 ...keep dreaming...
...in the grand scheme, it really is 'just around the corner'...

Frost...and...flowers! What a beautiful post. The frosty designs on the windshield are really pretty. And then, you take us inside and I can almost smell the sweet fragrance of the spring bouquet. Yeah...patience.

In the grand scheme of things you, my friend, are a soul mate and a seer of beauty... in all its forms. Frost on the window... oh, my, what transient beauty... what a gift.
