Flowery Friday

spring snowballs 

delicate white petals

bundled in full bloom

reminiscent of winter

no mittens required
photo and poem by Joanne Faries


  1. That's lovely. I can't make out what the flowers in the picture are though. They look like roses but I suspect they're not.

    1. don't know the official name but they truly look like big snowballs and that's what we call them. Enjoy your weekend

  2. Snowball appropriate name...I'd be tempted to see how the blooms fly if thrown like a snow ball. Certainly easier pickin' without mittens. We must be on the same wave length today with flowers.

  3. I planted a bush like that in our front yard years ago. (Now long gone.) If I remember right, it was called spirea, but snowball bush suits it much better... and that's how we referred to ours, too.

  4. Oh, a little surprise of poetry! How nice. Love the mixture of seasons in this one!

  5. Ahhh love the photo and makes me long for spring in our eternally frigid Colorado mountains. Lovely words to accompany the photo too.
