The Cheery Red Flame of Happiness lights up the darkness of Winter and sets the stage for the rest of the year.
A frozen dusting of white surprises the fern and I, blinding us to the reality that Spring is just around the corner.
A flowering Almond, happy in its existence ushers in the optimism of Spring in all it’s glory
Pink Camellia adorns St. Anne’s Chapel evoking a sense of wonderment and beauty akin to a fairy tale
The watercolors of May paint my imagination with a dreamy persistence.
A Japanese Maple beams brightly in the warm sun of early summer
Luscious Yellow Roses enlighten Miss Lillian’s Lovely Garden
The sherbet skies of Summer tempt me with the cool sizzle at the onset of a deliciously hot night
The happy faces of pink anenomes reach for the pale blue skies and cottony clouds of early Autumn
The serene green of October, a refreshing reminder of why I am lucky to live in the Beautiful Pacific Northwest.
Autumn shows its true richness, painting vivid colors across the maple trees of November
Snow graces the tops of the Cascade Mountains in quiet anticipation as Winter settles in to stay awhile
Wishing you a healthy and happy 2013 full of beauty,light and love!
