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

Yesterday When I Was Young

Vines shrubs and bramble
have all but obscured
this barn of yesterday

But its once bustling life
can still be seen . .
if you squint
a lot

Only hinting of its former beauty

Chasing Barns

I love barn chasing . . .
  This one really struck my fancy
An old barn
on a well manicured lawn
Wonderful juxtaposition !

Robust Rosey Roses

It's raining
not a dreary drudgery do
but a sweet summer sprinkle
that smells oh so good
and makes our forests and flowers
and me
very happy

The Hush of the Rush

The quiet sound of rushing falls
  echoing through the canyon
calms the mind
while it energizes the soul.

A wonder to see

Wild Things and My Spiffy Camera Bag

I love these teeny-tiny wildflowers
Like little fireflies
dancing in the forest.

I adore ferns
which grow in beautiful
uncontrollable abundance.

And this . . .  is my camera bag
It's a repurposed refitted
diaper bag.
Waterproof with pockets and pouches
and zippers.
It safely stores my Canon 7d and two lenses
plus an assortment of stuff.
The bad guys haven't a clue
what hides inside.

Down the Road

My distant neighbor has the most gorgeous flowers
and this is one of them
A peony maybe . .  I don't know my flowers
though I do love them
I'm more of a tree/forest/jungle type gardener
 if that can be considered gardening.

Still Standing

This little barn
has some parts missing
 but still stands (sorta kinda) strong
It has will power!

Stopping time
clearing the mind
leaving the day behind

one brief moment in time.

Sitting Silent

I love this barn
It sits unused and looks so lonely
So I trespassed
just a wee bit
and stole its image
nothing more.

A time worn fence
so not in a row
A garden forgotten
