Textured Tuesday: Winter Stems


In summer, we enjoy the color and aroma of flowers, 
then mourn their passing with the fall.
But winter gives us a different aspect of their beauty,
the stems and base that support their petals, leaves and seeds,
have a beauty all their own, one that is only revealed
when the leaves and petals have fallen away.
