Roses and rust


" . . . nature works as steadily in rust
as in rose petals."

Stunning photos and yes, true too.

P.S. On another topic altogether, I'm reading a series of novels by William Kent Krueger and just love his descriptions of your part of the world; some place I've never been, And his books are great too!

Brilliant pictures and it is so true. The hardness of rust & the softness of petals.

Hi Kathleen,

Miss me?! Love the header pic as well as your rusty one. Finally managed to look at the St. John's Bible site. Fabulous! Thanks for the info.

The rusty one would make a wonderous fabric design...

Janie said...

Thought provoking comparison of words and photos. Hard or soft, rich or poor, beautiful or not so much, we all face nature on an equal footing. Nature is the ultimate equalizer. Yes?

Yet more wonderful macros Kathleen. Beauty is everywhere. I like your new header too.

@ALIX: Thank you, my dear!

@JANE: Thanks for the tip! I'm not familiar with that author. But I assure you that's about to change!

@ELLEN: Thanks Ellen! Much appreciated

@BRAJA: I thank you!

@DERRICK: Yes! Terribly! I thought perhaps you didn't love me anymore. Hooray! I'm so happy you enjoyed the St. John's Bible. Now, come see the genuine artifact!

@JINKSY: I agree! Oh, Rudee.....

@J: Thank you for that. As an admirer of your fine work, I honored.

@JANIE: That's deep! Must delve further into that one!

@JOANNA: I do love my macro. I wonder if I'll ever branch out. Thank you for your nice words about the header. I had a couple of disastrous design days trying to reverse out type. Just not my thing.

@BOOMER: Aw, thanks, my dear. Much appreciated!

@MIMI: Thank you for your kind comment. So lovely when these things fall into place!
