“Flowers bring to life even the dullest days” – Ed Lehming The first day of May, in the midst of pandemic lockdowns, and I am blessed with the beauty of a single blossom from a Gerbera that I somehow managed to coax through the winter. It’s been a bit, no, actually very distressing to not be able to get out and photograph local wildflowers like I have in the past few years…. Read More
