Be like a Dandelion and thrive! They grow everywhere, they spread like…weeds. Everything about them shouts success! From their roots that dive deep and break off when pulled from up top, then of course they produce a whole new plant at incredible speed. They make beautiful, bright, yellow flowers that bees (and children) love. TheyContinue reading “Thrive”

I have a very humble garden, it grows us food, some flowers and too many weeds but not worth writing home about. One year a bird decided to plant this annoying crabapple tree. This darn thing would not die. I tried digging it up, clipping it off at the root, even the neighbor girl cameContinue reading “Crabapple Masterpiece”
Lately my walks have been few and my photography has been sparse. But when sunshine and droplets make an appearance I have a magnetic pull to go see. My muse. Taking that time and energy, which are both in short supply, is rewarded with these pictures I share. This one was something special. I wasContinue reading “Tulip Magic”
“If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere.” – Vincent Van Gogh Sword ferns in spring. I love the whimsy of those swirls. I am often taking far too many photos of these guys trying to get the picture just right. So perfectly organized for their complete unveiling.

Usually I just push through getting out rain or shine, freezing or not. Not this year. Maybe itContinue reading “The Return of Spring”
A beautiful winter day brought us out to enjoy our countryside. We got to visit a local wildlife reserve and the elk that live there. We just sat and soaked it in. So very beautiful. These moments away are a respite from our normal busy, tech filled lives. Simple beauty and tangible blessings. I wantContinue reading “Wild”
How is something so small and insignificant become meaningful? It is useless even, especially to the spider that made it, and yet so beautiful. How in this dangling web with dew drops on it make a difference in my life? Something that is here one moment and gone in the next. Knowing how fleeting itContinue reading “Insignificant”
Sometimes things just fall into place. The right light, the right scene, the perfect details. And usually I don’t know it happens until I get home and start looking at the pictures in detail. I love this photo! The details of the snow on that bridge are beautiful. It is the perfect snowscape I think.Continue reading “Just Right…”
Itsy Bitsy Daisy
I love the flowers that linger through fall and winter. I am always taken in by the close up details of droplets hanging on things, especially flowers. The fingerprints of God.
