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

along the Columbia River
just east of the gorge
Truly magnificent

The remains of summer
all now gone to seed
They enchant me with
their delicate little ribbons of color

Second Time Around

In a field
across the way
sweetpeas bloom in the early spring
gracing us again in the early fall

Stonehenge

In Washington State
just east of the Cascade Range
along the Columbia River
is Stonehenge
A perfect replica completed in 1929
to honor the fallen soldiers
of the First World War

Rolling Down the River

A breathless calm
with only the ship's wake
gently rippling the waters
of the Lower Columbia River
