Weekly Photo Challenge: Beginning   38 comments


Spring never comes quickly enough for me. Spring represents many things for me, including baseball, as I am an avid Kansas City Royals fan. Of course, flowers represent for me a new beginning, as do new life of all kinds. Most importantly, it represents the end of a very, very cold winter.

More of the same, but I’m feeling Spring-y and am wishing I could be seeing more of this right now. Snow, go away. Spring, come quickly, like NOW! These flowers are members of the mint family called Dead Nettle flowers.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Community (and Sub-community)   41 comments


One of my favorite times of the year is when communities of beautiful wildflowers pop up from their winter prisons, like these bloodroot blossoms in a nearby forest bottoms from last Spring.

With Spring comes new life, and with new life comes new beauty, and with new beauty comes new youth and energy.

No matter how old one is, Spring brings with it a youthful energy that has us perking up, smiling more, and doing things . . . like Spring cleaning. What other time of year does one have the energy for that?

And within every community exists sub-communities that feed off from one other. And isn’t this what makes the world go ’round?

A study in contrast II   9 comments


I was walking out in the field on my daughter’s property looking for something to photograph earlier this year. I came across this little bit of color in an otherwise somewhat dreary landscape. It had not yet turned Spring. I don’t know what this plant is called; I just call it Chinese Lanterns. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
