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

Saturday, January 20


It was midday bright
but as we passed this bit of quietude
I just had to jump out of the car
and try to capture some of its charm

Coastal Wonders

Tucked in a hollow
steps from the ocean
lives this small charming
bit of wetlands
unkempt unsoiled
left to be

Shadow Play

Long afternoon shadows
playing on calm waters

I am drawn to peaceful places
where trees dwell
where all you can hear
is the whispering of the wind
where time stops
if only for a time

Years ago my wanderings
took me up a lonely back road
where I discovered this quaint little lake
Which to me
is magical

Winter Sun

A rare clear winter day
in the Pacific Northwest
Walked the wetlands just before sunset
Mt St Helens was all aglow

Above the Fog

On Spirit Lake Hwy
heading up to Mt St Helens
the deep valley below
hidden under a heavy blanket of fog

My fingers numbed
my nose ran

Winter Green

In winter moss clings to our trees
keeping them green
all year long

Morning Frost

This was tagged at the nursery
as a creeping redwood
Um ... so far it's 30 feet high
and growing
Not exactly a low growing creeper
Whatever it is
I love it

Thursday, December 21

All Covered in Snow

I love our slightly dented mountain
especially when covered
in freshly fallen snow
Mt St Helens

Of Yesterday

Log trains of yesterdays not so long ago
chugged along these rails daily
No longer needed they now sit idle
freeing nature to reclaim her land

A Little Bit of Sunshine

Nine months of the year
we live under the cover of clouds
with an almost continuous drizzle
I love our webbed foot weather
but when the sun finds its way through
we rejoice

crossed the skies
just before darkness fell
