In the Absence of Color- #SundayStills #Photography #BloggingCommunity


This week’s Sunday Stills Challenge is objects that are the color white. Check out Terri Webster Schrandt’s wonderful blog and join in here.

The photo above is one of my Asian lilies showing off last summer. Their perfumed scent carries throughout the garden.

This close-up of dandelion seeds shows the beauty of these nutritious plants. You can learn more about their beneficial properties on Sally Cronin’s health blog.

Kind of hard not to believe in a higher being with clouds like these.

Stretching his hand up to reach the stars, too often man forgets the flowers at his feet.

I’m missing my flowers, but it won’t be long now! Florals shared are for Cee’s Flower of the Day.

My daughter’s house in Newfoundland last year. They were hit so hard the National Guard stepped in to help the province shovel themselves out.

When you are full-time RVers, this kind of snow is NOT appreciated!

I’ve been hard at work on my WIP, due the end of March. I won’t tell you how far behind I am, lol. Let’s hope the inspiration gods find me soon!

Hubby is so anxious for spring, he started planting vegetable seeds outside yesterday. We’ll see if they take, or not. We’re trying a few new things; butternut squash, Sakata sweet melon, and some awesome herb seeds received from Thailand thanks to Carol Taylor!

I hope you enjoyed this brief coffee chat. What’s it like in your part of the world?

good morning

  1. The flower pictures are lovely. We are lucky as flowers bloom all year round here in Spain. Spring should be on the west coast soon though. xo

  2. I feel like a full-time RV-er these days, Jacquie, so I know first hand how snow and/or extreme cold is NOT always welcomed! But all that snow at your daughter’s door–scary! Beautiful array of white images this week! Your flowers are beautiful and bring me hope for spring!

    1. She lives in the land of icebergs (the Titanic sank off the coast of Newfoundland) so I guess it’s to be expected 🙂

  6. I love the color white, Jacqui, and you’re right about those clouds. Our planet is a marvel worth a bit of worship – look at all those beautiful flowers. Forget that snow though (yikes). I’m with your husband and want to get my hands in the soil soon. Good luck with your writing. You go, girl! ❤

      1. Yay. We finally had a nice sunny day, but way to early for dirt playing here. Come April, I’ll be out there!

    1. Oh, no! Of all the years to move 😦
      At least she’s been through some of the worst weather now, so she can enjoy the good days.

    Stunning pictures, Jacquie:) I can’t believe how much snow your daughter had. That is not a walk way I’d want to clear. Too much snow on trailers is never a good thing, nor is getting it off. I saw the first flower of spring today in the forest, it made me smile.

  14. Jacquie, what lovely white flowers. I wouldn’t want that much snow, though. WOW! Thank goodness someone helped them. That much snow looks like a heart attack waiting to happen. Good luck on your next WIP. 🙂

    1. Thank you, Marsha. Yes, I think the city was warning those with underlying conditions to wait for help. It buried cars!
