I'm a free spirited aging hippie
who loves talking to flowers, chasing rainbows
and photographing all the beauty that surrounds us

Room Dividers

Nature's mysterious 
dividing lines.. Creating forest rooms
Some light and full of life
Some deep and dark where little grows

We have an overgrown Camellia bush out our front door
the porch light illuminates the blooms
