Shelter From the Storm

Shelter

“Come in,” she said, “I’ll give ya . . . Shelter from the Storm.”

Shelter 2

Shelter 2

A moth (I think) shelters amongst the petals of this sweet smelling rose, as unseasonal heavy rains fall.

The quote this time is from a song. Any ideas who sang it?

I’ll take pity on you, in a few hours – internet permitting – and post the answer.

post script: Spell check is underlining “unseasonal” in red, so I did a quick google check. I am correct in spelling and use: it means unusual or inappropriate for the time of year (especially of weather). The fun thing is in the sentence they give to illustrate its use: “Temperatures rose to an unseasonal 12C”.

Rose?? You mean normally it is much colder than 12C? Where do you live? The Arctic? In Cape Town it is rare we get as low as 12C, and that in mid-winter! To rise to an unseasonal temperature, we’d be talking high 20’s in winter and over 38C in summer!

Answer: The singer is Bob Dylan. Congratulations to Quiall who knew 🙂

      Thank you 🙂 It has the deepest scent. 🙂
      I have a Canon digital IXUS 95IS, 10 MP
      It’s pretty old, and I find it quite difficult to focus on the close shots, but that is the joy of digital as oppose to my old prints! I can discard all the blurred shots at no cost!

      haha Thank you 🙂 But really, no patience involved. I just grabbed my camera and took lots of shots trying to get one in focus! 😀

    I love that song, well pretty well all of his songs. Around here it is usually about 2 or 3C this time of year. Middle of winter it has been -40 windchill.

        Yes I do like the song 🙂 I’m sure people know Bob Dylan – but perhaps not this song? My 20 something daughter knew – so I don’t think you’re getting old 🙂

      I think I need to have a camera holster – I am forever running round the house to find where I last left the camera, to take a pic before the topic has gone! 😀
