in the tall grass

the start of feathery plumes –

new sign of autumn

Butter Yellow

I bought these a few weeks ago, they are still in bloom at a bright spot near the window. We are up to week three, with a diet of indirect sunlight and three ice cubes once a week – we seem to still be keeping company. Orchids have a mind of their own. Mostly, I’m just along for the ride.

In The Garden

in the garden

bees tinker
in and out of blooms

here and there
a petal tumbles,
gone adrift

Darkness & Deep

at long last deep spring!
mother nature in full bloom –
darkness comes to light

Hard & Soft


from hard frozen ground
the most delicate seedlings –
the magic of spring
brings old limbs a taste of youth
clad in soft delicate blooms
