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

Serendipity

It was midday bright
but as we passed this bit of quietude
I just had to jump out of the car
and try to capture some of its charm

unkempt unsoiled
left to be

Timeless

I am drawn to peaceful places
where trees dwell
where all you can hear
is the whispering of the wind
where time stops
if only for a time

Morning Frost

This was tagged at the nursery
as a creeping redwood
Um ... so far it's 30 feet high
and growing
Not exactly a low growing creeper
Whatever it is
I love it

Of Yesterday

Log trains of yesterdays not so long ago
chugged along these rails daily
No longer needed they now sit idle
freeing nature to reclaim her land

we rejoice
