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

Heavy rains have added

Take Me Home ~ Country Road

A storm is heading in ~
So fleeting are the beauties of autumn
I guess that's why
we cherish them so.

This beauty graced my presence at the wetlands today
I believe it's a red-tailed hawk.
I saw freedom in him
A freedom we all share
thanks to Veterans alive and not 
from many lands
of many wars
throughout all time.
