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

Along the Way

This disheveled stand of
White Birch
called out to me as it
shimmered in the glow
of afternoon light

By the Sea

Squalls and gale force winds
filled with the salt of the sea
Winter at the coast
I drink in
with childish delight

The Beautiful Cascades

Suncast shadows
and windswept snow
The Cascade Range

The hills that tuck us into our little valley
glow in a covering of frost

Glowing in the Shadows

Hiding in the crevice
of a hollowed out tree
these little cuties
glowed bright
as can be

that little window closed
hiding from view

Above the Fog

The fog rolled in so fast
Spirit Lake Hwy
became impossible to navigate
but it was a breathtaking sight

Near fog shrouded Mt St Helens

Last Light

On these short winter days
the sun hurries so to set
with little time to bid it

Sunday, December 11

On a Far Shore

 A far away shore
 in mind and in dream
 peaceful and serene
 an island
that someday
I will wander

Saturday, December 10

On a Hillside

Up the lane
in a field
on a hill
lives my favorite tree
Through all the seasons change
it beckons me
to walk the lane
to take the time to just be
to simply talk with me

Fluffy Feather Fantasies

Snowing on our little hill
staying home
staying warm

our street rarely gets plowed
such is country living

The cold hush of winter
blankets the wetlands

chasing autumn away

A time to
sit by the fire
and doodle

Trickling Waters

I often wander
to this little waterfall
on a nearby river
to sit and listen
to its peaceful singing sound
