Cherish is my favorite word, and I cherish the ability of turning the routine into a beautiful moment.
Nature creates in me, a spiritual and meditative time to bring peace, harmony and balance, into an otherwise ordinary day~

A Push for Some Nature Colouring~

After having a bad cold for days...weeks now, I am ready for sunshine and colour, any colour is better than the drab gray and brown that has shown around for weeks now.  I am talking anything from the powder white of clean fallen snow, to spring, summer and autumn colours, but for now, I must share some of what has been and hope that the new kind comes on soon, for it would perk me up so very much, how about you~

You know that there is nothing quite like an American Robin to usher in a cheerful day~

Autumn colouration of the Oregon Rhododendron to the sweet berries of the Euonymus ...

                                                               Angelic Tulip blossom~

Endless Summer Hydrangea, Mediterranean posies, Tulips and Roses all brighten a day~

                                                      A Rose like sunshine to the soul~

                                              Tulips under the droplets of rain presented~

Jewelweed helps if your skin happens to come in contact with Poison Ivy and Oak and they are also so pretty too.  They are hidden away for now, but soon ;) ~

    Jewelweed, Tulips and Japanese Kaki Persimmons as lovely as any Valentine card~

Japanese Kaki Persimmons, a delicacy and also such loveliness held in each fruit offered~
