It’s got to be done, so make it fun!
Slip on those fancy gloves and high heels
and have a blast with that duster!
“Every spring is the only spring – a perpetual astonishment.”
~ Ellis Peters
s – l – o – w d – o – w – n ;
. . . . . pause . . . . .
smell the flowers
Curiosity is lying in wait for every secret.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Breathe on me the poems and songs yet to be written …

Stay alert and keep watch;
night is here, but Morning is coming!
Just thought I’d send you one of my favourite flowers
to celebrate the official arrival of Spring!
A babe in the house is a well-spring of pleasure,
a messenger of peace and love,
a resting place for innocence on earth …
~ Martin Fraquhar Tupper
- my newest nephew at 1 week old; I’m smitten!
Spring shows what God can do
with a drab and dirty world.
~ Virgil A. Kraft
Mesmerized by whispers of the waves
reciting a salty-sweet poem
each line similar, yet unique
full of soothing, and yearning, and exquisite grace.
If ”a flower is a tethered butterfly”
then this must be its cocoon.
You’ll never know what’s waiting for you on the other side
until you swing wide those gates and find out
Like last week’s image, here’s another tribute to The Breakwater.
She’s my favourite walk – a .75km sea wall
offering a unique experience of the ocean and it’s wildlife.
This Victoria landmark remains,
but current renovations will change the way she looks forever.
Walk with me -
confident in what we know for sure
as we step into the great unknown …
I had fun last month watching this Amaryllis bloom.
How can something so flamboyant
come from an ugly brown bulb?
I discovered this unique flower last week
blooming in an outdoor pot at Butchart Gardens.
It was such a treat to see in mid-January that I had to pass it on.
Sinking sun sets grove of trees aflame,
sending sparks dancing skyward,
to become stars burning steady and resilient.

I love the impressionism this form of
long exposure photography gives by ICM (Intentional Camera Movement while the shutter is open).
It indulges my more fanciful musings
Behold, the former things have come to pass,
and new things I now declare;
before they spring forth I tell you of them.
~ Isaiah 42:9
Merry Christmas everyone!
Thank you for blessing me with your visits, encouragement, and support in 2012!
May you truly experience Emmanuel, the Prince of Peace this Christmas.
I’m taking a break, and I’ll be back to posting weekly in the New Year
They who dwell in the ends of the earth
stand in awe of Your signs;
You make the dawn and the sunset shout for joy!
~ Psalm 65:7-9
