The First Kiss

from a Minnesota January


slow and still.

the ambiance slightly changes

when I decide I'm simply going to

and illuminate the barren landscape

as I wait

to be embraced by the caress of spring

and the heat 

of summer's passions.

Be kissed by a rose. 

Follow my Instagram page Les Dames D'abord to see my progress 

with my new camera. Cards and prints to be available later this year.

Beautiful. Very cheerful to see on a dull white sky day.

I will be kissed by a rose anytime hahaha. Oh, these roses are so soft and beautiful. I especially love the close-up of them, such a pretty color of pink. You are having fun with your new camera - and it shows! I look forward to seeing all the beauty you capture this year, Anita. I hope the new year is being good to you so far.

love, ~Sheri

Anita, I have not been by your blog in a long time. For some reason I thought you had retired from blogging. It is still lovely. So glad I happened upon it again.

Hello Anita,
Wasn't that goose behind a funny picture? They are such grand birds with long necks and I just love them. They are usually cautious around people giving out their loud HONK, but that particular day they just wandered and let me take their photo. I noticed the English copper watering can on Instagram. That is so pretty. I see you love copper too, and I am really enjoying my copper tea pot. Have a splendid week, Anita!
