Now What?

Before the tender age of three I had gotten lost twice, according to my mother.  The first time was in a soybean field behind our house when I was two.  The second time I took my little red wagon and my dog, Tuffy (above) with me.  I don't know how long I was gone or how far I got, but the police found me plodding along down the sidewalk.  I don't know why my mother says I was lost.  I knew exactly where I was going!

Spring is an exciting time of year!  What I love about it is the anticipation of what is to come.  Just like waiting to unwrap the presents under the Christmas tree when I was a child, the anticipation of flowers unfurling from their tightly wrapped buds is half the fun.  Come see what's in my garden and what awaits.

Welcome to my garden!

Nature's Balm

I recently read an article about how nature brings out the best in introverts.  Being one myself I can attest to this.

Village Life

I've been lost of late in the world of Thrush Green.  Is anyone else familiar with Miss Read's books?

Still Life Color

The month of March is the in-between month when the snow that covered the monotonous brown of Winter has gone and the green of Spring has only appeared in the stems and leaves of the soon-to-be blossoming daffodils.  I don't know about you, but I'm usually starved for color by this time of the year.  In the meantime, enjoy this feast of color from my Photo Library. . . .

Living Romantically

"When it comes to living romantically, one shouldn't follow a road map either -- it's something you should discover through contemplation and intuition."
