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

In the Land of Odd

Round a bend
and a completely different
forest appears
Moss covered trees alive and well
their needle laden branches way up high
with a birch or two mixed in
I love this magical place!

Calm Before the Storm

A nasty storm is headed
for the Pacific Northwest
bringing heavy rains and strong winds
Trees will tumble
hillsides will slide
rivers will rise
Oh joy...

Just prior to capturing an image
check the background

High Fashion

As kids we'd snap open the green centers 
where all that wonderful sticky stuff lives 
and attach them to our noses
It was all the rage ...
