Color of Summer

Hello, flower in my face!
You spread your love all over the fields,
and into the woods,
from sunrise to sunset.
You're the sugar in my coffee.

So Long, July!

You were on the cool side this year, July,
But still you were able to bring about your 
usual sunshine, color and love.
July is one of my favorite months, and these 
photos sort of tell the story why.
Thank you!
See you next year!

Clematis In My Front Yard

These little purple and white stars that slept during that long, harsh Winter,
blossom for us again!
Happy July!

Saturday in June.
Pink and yellow and white. 
With a blue sky and 2 wheels. 
Green all around us. Quiet roads. 
Happy hearts. 
Love is all you need. 
And some  gas.

Father's Day

To really know a father,
observe his behavior
with a lady,
a flat tire,
and a child.
Happy Father's Day, Wes!

Next Time

"Next time what I'd do is sit at 
the earth just before saying anything. I'd stop
just before going into a house
and be an emperor for a minute
and listen better to the wind
or the air being still.

When anyone talked to me, whether
blame or praise or just passing time,
I'd watch the face, how the mouth 
has to work, and see any strain,any
sign of what lifted the voice.

And for all, I'd know more--the earth
bracing itself and soaring, the air
finding every leaf and feather over
forest and water, and for every person
the body glowing inside the clothes
like a light.
~Mary Oliver

"To be creative means to be in love with life.
You can be creative 
only if 
you love life enough
 that you want to enhance it's beauty,
you want to bring 
a little more music to it,
a little more poetry to it,
a little more dance to it."

Time As We Know It

We need time to dream,
time to remember,
time to reach for the infinite,
time to be.

Silent Spring

If you logged on to "Google" today,
you would have seen a tribute.
Today is the anniversary of the birthday
of Rachel Louise Carson.
As an environmentalist, she documented 
the detrimental effects of commercial pesticides
on the environment; particularly birds, as early as 1940.
In 1950 she turned her attention to conservation, and the 
problems caused by synthetic pesticides.
Her book  Silent Spring  led to a nationwide ban on DDT,
and inspired an environmental movement that led to the creation 
of the US Environmental Protection Agency.
Her efforts allow me the pleasure of
 observing the Bluebirds that 
visit the little house every Spring.
They are simply spectacular!
Birthday Love to her!

Wild and Free

Traveling through the local neighborhoods
I've marveled at the beauty 
that only 
A wild Dogwood 

Wednesday, May 14, 2014


It always amazes me.
Deep within the forests and woodlands
during the deep, cold Winter months that have just passed,
there is an  abundance of color and fragrance
just waiting to burst and surprise us.
How I Love May!

My Lucky Day

I'm in Milwaukee!
Enjoying a Mother's Day weekend
with my little rolling stone.
The flowers are starting to bloom, 
Lake Michigan is ice free,
the new bicycle is all tuned up,
 the city is calling!
With love and hugs.

Lucky 7

Anyone lucky enough 
to be born

in such a beautiful month,

extraordinary soul.
Happy Birthday, Rich Fieldhouse!

"We are shaped by our thoughts;
we become what we think.
When the mind is pure,
joy follows like a shadow
