This year my Lilacs and Peonies did not do well. This Spring has seen very volatile weather from freezes to snow and torrents of rain, to hail to vicious winds and then on a dime, to very high temperatures. As these flowers began to bloom, the temperatures soared and in so doing, my flowers basically … Continue reading Lilacs And Peonies

We all deserve to be Loved for exactly who we are not what others want us to be or, regardless of how different we are. A problem does arise, however, when someone does not know the true meaning of Love hence acting from a place that is ugly and dark. How then do … Continue reading But How To Love?
Well, I was out and about in my fav park despite it being Sunday and a lot of people there as well. I tried to avoid as many as I could to hunt those birds I was there to hunt with my lens. My hands were not as fast nor as steady as they were … Continue reading Lock And Load
I knew it! Signs of Spring have arrived. Even though I froze my betooties off yesterday crawling on the ground while the winds [COLD!] blew, I captured the first colors in my gardens.

Not sure about you all but I’ve been in a serious funk of late. Spring cannot get here fast enough!

I am healing. I am actually singing again as witnessed in one of the videos. Yep, I broke out in a … Continue reading Sunday Special
A young boy, no more then ten, stood before me with words that had alarm bells clanging in my head. He said, “I always expect the worse. What if the apocalypse happens and I am not ready for it?” I stood rooted to the spot, appalled. In my mind I screamed, NO NO NO! Gently … Continue reading Make Your Own World
TRY TRY AGAIN!! Mother does not ever and I mean ever disappoint me! Two days ago the light was not friendly for this photographer to be taking pictures. It was a heavy overcast day with a real threat of yet more rain. Yet, my Heart yanked me in the direction of my favorite park. So … Continue reading If At First You Don’t Succeed
Last week was straight out of a nightmare. I’ve spoken to some who admitted the same thing. The top horror story in my life is I lost over 200 pictures that were taken at my fav park. My computer gobbled them up after I uploaded them into my editor. That, or I did something I … Continue reading Rainbow

A portion of the Love Dance I witnessed ‘tween two Flickers ~~~~~~ Walking in the pouring rain yesterday paid off as I witnessed a Love Dance between two Flickers.

Have I been missed? It’s been so long since I’ve been here (at least it feels that way to me). Blame the Forest. I just can’t keep away. I’ve taken so many pictures that if I posted all of them, well, let’s just say, we’d be here forever and a day. Obsessed I have been … Continue reading Feathers and Friends
As I began the arduous job of cleaning out my gardens, I saw up close and personal, signs of Life. Despite the fact that my garden muscles have begun to protest, when I finished cleaning out gardens the other day, I turned around, picked up my camera, and crawled in those very gardens. Yet … Continue reading New Beginnings

Whoever thought of the saying “this weather is for the birds” is a clueless nincompoop. I bet my birdseed that the idiot who thought of this catchy phrase did so from the comfort of heat and safe from the elements. Meanwhile, I and my cousins, sisters, brothers, in fact all feathered friends and family, shiver … Continue reading The Last Hoo-Rahhhh???
