Colorful umbrellas at Conservatory

Image

Pink tulips,

Yellow tulips,

Purple hyacinths,

Marley and Landen,

Purple, yellow, pastel

colored umbrellas.

Hands across the water,

fingers wishing to dabble

while Nana takes pictures

children’s Mom Trista says,

“We all just washed our hands

and are taking elevator to the 

main floor and heading out 

to eat at a restaurant.”

Kid’s other parent says typical

Dad’s funny thing,

“For crying out loud!” 

As I have to laugh, 

since my Dad used 

to say exact same thing to 

my two brothers and me! 

Photo and words sharing 

family event with you!

Happy Spring!

Delicate purple flowers

Image

Hints of frost damage upon leaves

and delicate purple blossoms

still seemed to request 

my favor, to promote 

and capture beauty.

Alas, I felt torn but 

their tiny, precious 

voices prevailed 

to entreat me.

I now finally

“get” why

Dr. Seuss

had his

caring elephant,

Horton, hearing a “Who.”

~~~~~~~~~~

“Horton Hears a Who,”

written in 1954, was

dedicated to his distant friend,

“For My Great Friend,

Mitsugi Nakamura

of Kyoto,

Japan.”

“Perspective”

This quote is from our

First Presbyterian Church

monthly newsletter called,

The Spire:

“Nothing that is worth doing can be

achieved in our lifetime; therefore we 

must be saved by Hope.

Nothing which is true or beautiful or 

good makes complete sense in any 

immediate context or history; therefore

we must be saved by Faith. Nothing we

do, however virtuous, can be

accomplished alone; therefore we are

saved by Love.

~ Reinhold Niebuhr

~~~~~~~~~~

Those who “stay awake and wait,”

Hope your sunrise Dawn brushes
away the tears from your

Midnight Vigil tonight. ❤

Magenta pink hibiscus sends a Valentine’s message

Image

Odes to flowers,

poems of love,

red and orange flames

of passion while the

deep, luxurious pink

of magenta deserves

adoration and warm regards.

The male stamen thrusts 

like a sword of passion and

romance while still staying 

“in touch with his feminine side.”

~ or ode to bright, cheery fuschia ~

Your thoughts are always 

appreciated, while your poetic

words add so much more. . .

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Thursday’s Doors ~ December 22, 2016 (close up)

Image


You may remember another shop

which was featured in the Fall.

It was a shop connected in this

grand brick building, separated 

by interior walls with several

places. The Choffey’s coffee

and tea shop with decadent

chocolates is on the left

of  this  florist shop.

It’s hard to capture,

showing how each

has its individual

personality.

This door in an 

older brick building

has fun with both formal 

and informal floral

holiday arrangements.

This is part of a series of doors,

with a link here to the founder,

Norm Frampton and his followers:

Thursday’s Doors~ View 2 of Chihuly umbrellas 

Image

Son James takes his photo 

up close, while I view 

pagoda or an awning 

of beautiful glass 

colorful or in

golden amber.

The entrance 

appears as a

door to pass

through

to get 

into the

imaginary,

creative world 

displayed by

Dale Chihuly.

To view a variety of doors,

you should venture over to

Columbine’s delicate details

Image

image

Gentle, delicate flower

named Columbine,

fares well through early

flowering season, holding

on to her petals while morning’s

rain poured down. The backdrop

of woods “bows out” of the picture,

allowing her the center of attention.

*** *** *** ***

photo taken in friend’s garden,

shared by Robin Cochran.

Columbine has more serious

and solemn story behind

the name, a school,

but today we are

grateful for grace.
