My Beautiful Buck

I've watched his velvet disappear.
And then he showed up with this.
Hunting season is never pretty.
He seems OK in spite of his wound.
I hope  he has good health.

His Velvet Coat

.

This handsome buck stops by
to gather some seed
and share his beauty.
He's shy and timid.
And beautiful.
He has lost his velvet.
I hope to photograph that soon.
He ran off this morning before I could get him.

Happy Monday!

Sunshine On A Stem

This little blossom,
well, it's really not little,
is one of my favorite photos from
the Summer of 2014.
In my limited travels 
to and from,
here and there,
I notice flowers.
It always excites me
when the conditions are ripe
and I have my camera in tow.
And I have time to stop!
I love flowers.
I love sunflowers.
I've seen many different varieties
popping up around here this year.
Yellow, Auburn, Copper and Gold.
This one is just beginning 
to spread her wings.
"Turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind you."
~Maori proverb

With love and hugs.

Destination High Point

I managed to sneak in a ride yesterday.
Late afternoon.
It felt invigorating and therapeutic.
And colorful.
And scenic. 
The roads were quiet.
My focus was clear.
No distractions.
Except for the beauty
of nature
and
the bike in front of me.
The person in control. 
My soul mate.
I'm blessed.
Happy Wednesday, my friends!
With love and hugs.

Hello Again!

Wow! 
I feel so lazy for not having posted 
on this little blog of mine
in such a long time!
I don't have an excuse.
I guess life took over.
I mean work.
Or Summer.
I've missed it.
I hope some of my old faithful readers
return and enjoy 
my little story.
This first day of Autumn
is a tad bittersweet.
Sunny, warm, and crisp.
A tease.
 One thing I missed most this past Summer
was the abundance of butterflies.
They were few and far between. 
"There is nothing in a caterpillar
that tells you it's going to be a butterfly."
~R. Buckminster Fuller

With love and hugs.

Color of Summer

Hello, flower in my face!
You spread your love all over the fields,
and into the woods,
from sunrise to sunset.
You're the sugar in my coffee.

So Long, July!








You were on the cool side this year, July,
But still you were able to bring about your 
usual sunshine, color and love.
July is one of my favorite months, and these 
photos sort of tell the story why.
Thank you!
See you next year!

Travelling

Saturday in June.
Pink and yellow and white. 
With a blue sky and 2 wheels. 
Green all around us. Quiet roads. 
Happy hearts. 
Love is all you need. 
And some  gas.

Father's Day

To really know a father,
observe his behavior
with a lady,
a flat tire,
and a child.
Happy Father's Day, Wes!

Next Time

"Next time what I'd do is sit at 
the earth just before saying anything. I'd stop
just before going into a house
and be an emperor for a minute
and listen better to the wind
or the air being still.

When anyone talked to me, whether
blame or praise or just passing time,
I'd watch the face, how the mouth 
has to work, and see any strain,any
sign of what lifted the voice.

And for all, I'd know more--the earth
bracing itself and soaring, the air
finding every leaf and feather over
forest and water, and for every person
the body glowing inside the clothes
like a light.
~Mary Oliver

Creativity

"To be creative means to be in love with life.
You can be creative 
only if 
you love life enough
 that you want to enhance it's beauty,
you want to bring 
a little more music to it,
a little more poetry to it,
a little more dance to it."
