Some of my favorite photos have delicate colors!
Have you ever seen the dull, grey underbelly of the sky? It exposes itself when darkness fades and the sky is no longer black, nor is it blue; just before the sun arises to burn off the colorless night. As the sky becomes tinged with hopeful brightness… Poof! The dim underbelly disappears!

All on the same Peach Drift groundcover knockout rose bush, these gorgeous flowers are in various stages of opening. The buds are a lovely shade of peach, the full blooms are a combination of soft pink petals with yellow centers, and the nearly spent blossoms are almost white. I think they present an impressive display of delicate beauty!
and for Floral Friday – FF#19
I am tired today. A fatigue has set in that coffee just won’t fix. My coffee tastes bitter! It tastes like reality: like disappointment and defeat. I usually drink my coffee black, but today it needs a shot of optimism, of acceptance, and a sprinkle or two of “what if”… and maybe chocolate! Chocolate fixes everything!
It’s Only Words #4 – For Ragtag Daily Prompt: Fatigue
To better appreciate the structures in this photo, I cropped out the street and most of the tree to the right. Photo taken near Freiburg, Germany.
I felt like this shot was too wide so I reduced the size. By placing the steeple at a third, the flowers in the foreground are near center and the out-of-focus tree on the right is gone. I also cropped out the rail at the bottom, straightened the frame and brightened the color. Photo taken in Strasbourg, France.
Playful stars, full of mirth,
tossed their luster down to earth.
Sparkles floating through the skies
landed in your bright blue eyes.

Fog is fleeting… it always lifts… thanks to the sun!
