A giant visited my garden earlier this morning

No no no noooooo! No! No! Well, yes, we were ‘graced’ by a much unexpected snow storm last night. Snow-covered roofs had white little ghosts dancing on them earlier this morning, and an invisible giant had covered the garden in sugar. Maybe he thought that my garden was a cake and wanted to have it decorated with cream cheese frosting? Ah yes, that must be it! A giant with a sugar sifter shaking powdered sugar in the garden because everything was covered in a thin layer of something white, something that looked like sugar, but really it tasted more like snow… What would you have done? I wanted to shout at the giant for doing such naughty thing, or maybe shoo him away, but then I decided that anyone can live with flowers, even in the midst of a snow storm... even if all you have is a container and some roses from the market… at last, I can enjoy a bit of summer…. Sigh!

Rain or snow, sunshine or shade.... may you all have a blessed weekend, my friends!

    What a beautiful share this morning. Not snow? Oh my I can see the sparkling twinkles across the yard as we gaze out the window. How absolutely beautiful.

    No snow here in the desert. Another 90s day. I am beginning to enjoy the warmth. I have missed it. Love your roses that you have shared today. So beautiful sweet friend. Have a glorious weekend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

  6. Those stinking giants! They have been hovering over our place too...dropping bits of confectionary sugar here and there..and puting the fingers on the buds and pushing them back into submission. I think Jack had the right idea when he chopped the stalk down with that Devil on it!;>) xxoo Diana

  7. I love your posts and the music, and fantasy stories. I think perhaps your giant spilled a bit of sugar that came our way too. And it is quite cold here. I live in Utah. Are you anywhere near here? I think it still isn't Spring for sure yet. So I will look on your blog and feel the sunshine.
