Dreams of Spring Coming

There is beauty in the dried, the dead, the withered.
There is beauty in the old.
There is beauty in the past, and hope for the future.
Nestled amongst the patches of ice, shards of broken pottery and cracked cement the remains of grasses and weeds. 

Autumn golds and silvers.

Beauty in the past and hope for the future - those are wonderful words. I especially like your last photo with the ice/snow. Quite a contrast and something we never see here.

Nice series. Like the hint of snow. Glad I don't have that where I live.

Beautiful faded flowers and I love your words. (And it gives me hope because I'm definitely not a Spring flower any more ;>)!)
