Winter garden -my roses are freezing

I have more or less given up the one year long photo challenge that is called “365 foton“.

My time is not enough for all things that need to be done in my life. And I have to make some choices. But still I enjoy my moment of photographing, even if it want happen every day.

Like today: the world has turned into a frosty landscape and all the roses in my garden are freezing. They are still beautiful, but covered with ice crystals. Soon they will be gone for this time. Guess I will see them next spring, when the nice warm weather returns.

But I really like winter and wish for a cold and snowy one. It’s been a few years now with little or no snow at all, which is a bit sad, I love the silence and the white snow that lights up in the dark, so I hope it soon will be here.

Meanwhile I hope you will enjoy some of my frosty garden photos:)

Patchwork

Lite fusk kanske, men det var lite roligt att leka med färger och det blir ett lite spännande sätt att skapa kontrast i en bild som annars är rätt kontrastlös:)
This patchworks colors might seem a bit like cheating, but it’s fun to play with colors. And this is an exciting way to add some contrast to a picture with very little contrast:)

An evening walk in my June garden

Flowers in my June garden

An evening walk, starting out in my June garden resulted in some discoveries and a few photos.

Thought I haven’t been online many hours the last weeks, I thought it was time to get some inspiration and new photos. The weather have been terrible lately and my inspiration have been lacking.

I have had a week off, with my kids home from school. There haven’t been much time for me online then, I have spent many wonderful hours with my kids instead:)

Tonight I finally got out on an evening walk, the weather was at least OK. Not sunny but not raining either. And I discovered a lot of fantastic roses in my garden. Things happen when I stay out of my garden for some days. Amazingly the bushes was all covered with roses and also the clematis has a lot of flowers. Summer keeps struggling even if there are cold weather and a lot of rain.

Here are some photos from my garden, just a few, but I have chosen my favorite flowers for now, next week there will be others:)
