Flowers in the snow

Dear friends,

Just a few minutes ago I visited Mindlovemisery's Menagerie to see if there was a nice Photo-Challenge. I was really surprised to see that there was a new Photo Challenge titled "flowers in the snow" and I just had to do this one.
A gorgeous photo of a beautiful rose in the snow ... it triggered me immediately and brought another haiku, which I once wrote, about Tulips in the snow, in mind.

I am confused
winter has departed
snow in april

snow in april
without hesitation flowers bloom
colors between white

colors between white 
such a strange ambiguity
for Mother Earth

for Mother Earth
no doubts at all today
I am confused

Tulips in the snow
I just had to share this cascading haiku on Tulips in the snow. Several years ago it was early spring here in The Netherlands and nature was already starting to come alive again. Than suddenly, somewhere around Easter, it started to snow again, it was April than ... the Tulips in my garden were covered with snow ... such a strange sight ... Mother Earth for sure was confused, no doubt about it.

Well ... I hope you did like this post. See you next time ... Namaste.

So beautiful =) Here in Sweden we had 2 particularly long intense winters back to back. I thought summer would never begin, spring had more or less passed in the cold. I was so surprised when I went out and found these flowers

I especially love these lines when taken in isolation:
"colors between white
such a strange ambiguity"
They read as though the meaning somehow slips between the words :)
