Warm, spring weather today. Willows shimmer as the breeze blows. They remind me of long sweeping skirts, gentle rain, pastel paintings.

In some stories, willows are a symbol of wisdom; people seek advice from Grandmother Willow or Willow-Father. But in some English folktales, willows are evil ones who uproot themselves and stalk strangers.

I think these willows are friendly and wise -- just don't mess with their roots....

Touch of spring

Love seeing the crocuses pop up and open! They are little buds of hope after a long winter.

When you have only two pennies left in the world, buy a loaf of bread with one, and a lily with the other. 
~Chinese Proverb

in a stream, sometimes clear, 
sometimes reflecting and distorting
as life always seems to do

Change of season creates a restless wind. People seem unsettled. Dramatic plays between clouds and light in the sky. Bring a raincoat and a camera. You never know what might happen next.

Rainy reflections

Sometimes a different perspective helps.

Rainbow show

A wonderfully dramatic sky tonight after wind and rain. If you look closely, you'll see a faint second rainbow.

Such vivid rainbow colors....

The sky changed hues.

And the trees blazed into twilight.

Art in the sky

Amazing clouds lately, with much temperamental weather. Mother Nature / God is a glorious artist.

Rosy ridges

Now, imagine the fragrance of red....
