May Showers

I’m caught in the cycle of May showers this week. Rain day in and day out. This brings to mind the “April showers bring May flowers” I was familiar with and liked the saying because it rhymed well. At least the plants and flowers outside will enjoy all this extra nourishment. I enjoy hearing the…… Continue reading May Showers

In Bloom

Yes, this is another photo blog. XD I’ve been posting mostly in this fashion lately. It’s not so much about having something to show as it is about the experience of seeing something and wanting to preserve the memory of it.

Backyard surprises

Orchid head

This is a flower head from one of my mini phalaenopsis orchids. I would have liked it to stay on its branch but the plant took a tumble from the table a few days earlier and unfortunately a flower snapped off. 😢 I wanted to take a snapshot to commemorate its beauty before it wilted…… Continue reading Orchid head

Troublemaker

I am here with my many breaths. Tonight I watch families of snowflakes parachuting from the clouds to join their brethren. Sometimes my own strength is irksome, in that a simple sneeze from me can become a strong, hearty gust or my coughs come out as short, slapping whirls of air. The little flurry tufts, gracefully…… Continue reading Troublemaker
