Looking Up

Finally had a night with a lot less coughing, yipee! It's been 3.5 weeks of this silliness, so hopefully it is surrendering now and life can return to "normal" soon......whatever that is!!

Sun came out this morning and there was no frost. I rather like these "Love in a Mist" seedheads in my garden with their crisp starfish shaped tops and wispy beardlike fronds beneath. They are filled with little black seeds, some of which are already sown and some are still to leave the pod and fly.

Time to think about new growth coming in Spring. Time to think about looking up and looking forward while we wait for the next stage for hubby after his injury and surgery. 12 more days and we will know more of what we are dealing with. Here's hoping......
Glad to hear that you are on the mend, crossing fingers for hubby. A stunning shot with great texture and detail, fav!

Beautiful shot. Glad you had a better night. I have given up on waiting for normal, decided long ago that normal doesn't exist.

Fingers crossed hubby has good news too.

Beautiful. Hope it's onwards and upwards for both of you. Waiting is tough though!

Lovely tones and great details. Colds have been really hanging on this season. I know people who have them for awhile. I had a mild one but it lasted a long time. Blech! :)
