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

Patience is . .

It's been raining buckets
with just glimpses of blue to entice
But patience is a virtue
this persistent rain will only 
make for a more glorious Spring
. . When it decides to finally
truly gets here

Seeing Green

I love the color
green ~
I hope your week is going well
Rain is in the forecast for the rest of our week
but then it was also in today's
and we had blue skies and puffy white clouds
with not a drop of rain
~ and for soggy Washington State
that's always a welcome treat !

It's a Daffodil World

They're everywhere
being sunshiny
It's starting to look a lot
like Spring
Doing the happy dance !

What a Difference a Day Makes

We enjoyed the glorious sunshine
As rain is expected for the next several days
But that's why I love
the Pacific Northwest ~

Hope you have a wonderful weekend !

of freshly fallen rain
Pure magic ~

My Dreams Did See

I fell asleep under a tree
next to a lake
where my dreams did see . . .
Pixies dusting in hues
with twirls and swirls
of purples and blues

It'll soon be clean-up time at the nearby state park. And there's lots to do.
High winds took down quite a few trees this winter.
These two trees fell across the path. I had to scamper over or around many such obstacles.
It was worth the scampering ~

A Drop of Rain

A drop of rain

fill the rivers
nourish the earth
