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

A Golden Farewell

When the sun touched 
 this little bundle 
giving them a golden glow
it gave me pause
 to be thankful
for a summer filled with their beauty

The Quiet Beauty of Eastern Washington

Rolling hills
that go on and on
with the Columbia River far below
 Mt Hood to the west
 faintly showing through
with a wee bit of snow

The Dry Side

The east side of the Cascades
has a surprisingly dry climate
Where the west side is much soggier 
making for very different vegetation
I love them both

A Feather on the Breath of God

The feather flew
not because of anything in itself
but because the air bore it along
thus am I a feather on the breath of God

Abernathy Hollow

This tiny treasure
dear to my heart
is a nearly unknown
really really small state park
A hidden beauty
that begged for a name
so Bill and I christened it

The Colors of Autumn

Autumn colors are unfolding
 more with each passing day
Umber to gold
 the many blushes of red 
even potent purple

Out to Pasture

So many old barns and empty pastures
scattered about the countryside
left to the elements

The sunniest of flowers
that charms 
and brings on uncontrollable
