rites of spring



good morning dear friends. it’s been such a long time since my last post and today was the day to get out of my blogging funk! i just needed time to decompress, disconnect and as timothy leary said, drop out! but with the new season comes a new attitude. not one of obligation or necessity, but one of joie de vivre, hope and dreams! it’s been a tough road the last few weeks but as of now i’m back to work on my masterpiece, life itself. not trying to finish anything but just adding brush strokes to the canvas. as always i’m looking to nature for inspiration so stopped at the very first image on pinterest that caught my eye today. instead of posting a ton of shots,  just looking and studying the one here. the composition and the colors…slowing down and truly observing. i hope your spring has started out sunny and can’t wait to share the season together. i’ve been missing you!

flower power



happy saturday  guys, how are you doing tonight? i’ve been laying low for the past few days. working quietly and trying to grasp what happened this week.



like everyone, i’m looking for meaning in a brutal world. what gives me hope and inspiration are my fellow americans.



i can’t imagine why there is such duality in the world. how it can he both light and dark when the light is so bright.



i hope you don’t mind another flower post.




i’m obsessed with peonies and anything resembling them. even the photos make me feel better.

what is it about flowers? i find something healing and comforting in them.



i hope you do too. i did get an orchid for my bedside table and tulips for the entry. and they really cheered me up. i know it’s trivial but wanted to share what i guess is nature’s remedy in case you needed a boost too. well, i just thought i’d stop by and let you know i’m thinking of you.  have wonderful weekend!

spring has sprung



good morning and happy monday guys. it’s a rainy day here but april showers bring may flowers right? while i was obsessing over the weekend i came across a ton of pretty images and thought it would be a good start to a new week.



it’s been an emotional weekend around here and i want to stop and refocus. i’m dying take a deep breath and smell the fresh petals!



guess i’ll have to settle for the photos. that supposedly works just as well according to feng shui! (well, almost  :)





if you’re in a garden today, enjoy it and have a great new week!
