the green mountains

Green is the prime color of the world,
and that from which its loveliness arises.

One of my favorites of the Spring Garden.
I got lost in these close ups of this intensely haunting, dreamy blush tulip 
exploding with such bold color.

gasps of delight

Keep your eyes open to beauty, to sweetness, to light.
If you look hard enough, you can find magic anywhere.

like icing on a cake

Before the rain came,
 I just couldn't help but take a few more photos of all this irresistible spring perfection!

i love this~

Everyone wants to be happy; happiness is a right. And while on a secondary level differences exist of nationality, faith, family background, social status and so on, more important is that on a human level we are the same. None of us wants to face problems, and yet we create them by stressing our differences. If we see each other just as fellow human beings, there'll be no basis for fighting or conflict between us.

carry away

We made a super quick stop at the ocean last week on our way back from Maine.
The two sea gulls and I stood there for a few moments with our eyes closed breathing in the salty air.
We allowed the wind to carry our thoughts far across the sea.
Wishes and prayers.  Hopes and dreams.

these three

We spent last weekend with these three amazing Grandchildren.
Jack, Grace, and Eve.
So full of wonder, so full of magic, so full of everything good in the world.

I came upon this heart while on a walk through the woods yesterday.
~Finding love in all the right places.
Fill up your heart with peace and joy.

hanging on

It is the sweet, simple things of life
which are the real ones after all.

I photographed a vase of flowers 
that I received for my birthday.

spring alive

We are experiencing such a great degree of transformation in this month of April.
Snowy white, April showers, temporary sunshine, and mosaics of emerging greens.
Little signs of new beginnings are everywhere.
This is the best month to really take the time to look and listen.

birthday love

We turn older with years,
but newer every day.
~Emily Dickinson

Still some snow in the deeps woods.
Loving this quote today on my birthday.

a symphony

The month of April is a symphony of greys, browns, blacks, and whites.
It creates a Springtime rhythm that sends lyrics across the land.
Its tones are slowing beginning to take on new and exciting hues.
