Frozen moments, waiting for a new chance to bloom.
The two top ones are wild strawberries, the bottom photo shows the buds of my camellia which blooms by the end of winter. They have lovely red flowers.

I was happy to know I guessed right about the picture being a strawberry. It does look like sugar flowers, as someone said. Very nice!

Great photos, Wil! I noticed this morning that the pink camellia in our church garth had bloomed and still had hundreds of buds. They are such lovely flowers.

How amazing to see the resilence of beautiful plants like these. I live in such a different climate than you and today I've shared the last roses from my yard this week at Happily Retired Gal and Sacred Ruminations, especially for all those folks who are currently snowbound. I'll be cutting those bushes back in the next week or two so I'll have no NEW roses to share until Spring time.
Hugs and blessings,

Hi, Nice pics - what camera do you have?
You have an interesting background! - let's compare notes: I was born in Soerabaja, on the East coast of Java in 1949 - my parents were in the Japanese camp -I was 5 when we went to Holland - lived there till I got married. then lived for a year in Berlin, 4 years in the US, back to Holl. for 9 years, and since 1985 have lived in the US.
Your grandkids skating on the canal brings back memories!!
Visit my blog sometimes, cheers, Jeannette
