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

Country Roads

Even in the rain
I love country drives

Wild Roses

They flourish in our woodlands
along our country roads
just about anywhere

This old brick building
has seen many changes
Now it sits dormant
sealed and forgotten

Delightful Discovery

Discovered this little sweetie
deep in the woodlands
all by its lonesome
But it seemed happy
catching a ray of sunlight
every now and then

Mt St Helens.. 33 Years Later

Thirty-three years ago
on May 18, 1980
Mt St Helens violently erupted
Today the mountain is quiet
but doesn't sleep

Hummingbird Sports Bar

The little hummers love
this trumpet wildflower
Blooming profusely
in our woodlands
My Random 5 for Friday:
1) My seriously unruly curly hair
nearly got cut off. Sweet hubby said he liked my mop
so I walked away from the scissors
for now...
2) I love my coffee freshly ground
hot black and strong
3) I use a whole bean mix of
  French vanilla, hazelnut cream and double chocolate
4) As I grabbed my towel 
a gigantic huge monster spider
ran out and off across the bathroom floor
5) I seriously freaked out
so much so I swallowed my mouthwash

In a Sea of Color

In the midst
of many blossoms and blooms
this little guy looked forlorn and lonely
So I clicked his pic
and I do believe I spied
a (wind assisted) nod

When native trees sprout up
we usually let them grow
This is one of them
and it has the most beautiful 
Springtime flowers

Away From the Things of Man

Seaquest State Park
My Random Five for Friday
1) My happy place is deep in the forest
away from the things of man
which is where I was today
2) Of course always with my trusty Canon 7d
3) I usually go to the state park or the wetlands
both just a few miles from home
Today I wandered the state park.. had it all to myself
4) I always carry water.. and pepper spray
in case I meet up with a bear
5) I've yet to encounter Sasquatch
though I've heard many a local tale
I think it'd be neat to see Big Foot
roaming the hills and dale
Happy Friday!

Wild Thing

Tiny and so delicate
growing in the far regions
of our jungled yard
