“All things change, it is inevitable, even the things that appear to be constants eventually pass into history. The cycles of time and nature cannot be stopped.” – Ed Lehming I’ve written a few times about the beauty of beech leaves in the dead of winter. As other leaves have long since fallen to the ground, these leaves cling to the branches with incredible tenacity and offer much needed brightness to otherwise… Read More

“It’s the nameless who leave a vestige in their wake.”  ― Anthony T. Hincks Spring, and as the wildflowers emerge from their winter’s rest, the survivors of the winter elements still cling tenaciously to their branches.

“A day’s brightness is determined by the light in our hearts.”  ― A.D. Posey This ‘solitaire’ is not the same as the one I posted few days ago.

The bleak frames of the winter trees now show a soft bloom of pale greens and yellows, as buds begin to open and small leaves begin to emerge from their winter shells. It’s a great time of the year, days, its warming,… Read More

“Every man has his secret sorrows which the world knows not; and often times we call a man cold when he is only sad.” ― Henry Wadsworth Longfellow Two views of the same flower, a week apart.

It also reminded me how gradually things can change without you really noticing… Read More
