I'm a free spirited aging hippie
who loves talking to flowers, chasing rainbows
and photographing all the beauty that surrounds us
Thanks for taking a peek into my little world

Hidden Amongst the Green

Deep in the forest of green
this sweet little iris grows
It's a magical moment
when I rediscover it each and every Spring
