Emerging Buds!

Photo Challenge: Awakening In between the raindrops, sleet and snow...I was able to get some flower buds that had been washed in rainwater! Each season has its color.  Spring is full of every color imaginable; pinks, orchids, yellows, different shades of red splashing the landscape sharply contrast the dreary white & grayish tones of Winter.

Not Yet Unwrapped…

Patience…The Waiting Place

Daily Post: Patience I can hear my mother say, “You need to be patient!” I am an impatient person! Life is fast paced in this technology driven, "hit a button", "fast food drive up", "instant gratification" world we all live in. Everything should have happened 15 minutes ago...it can feel like we are behind instead [...]

White Noise

Daily Post: Noise Does anyone else struggle with sensory overload? I work in a high energetic active environment. Sometimes by the end of the day...I am on sensory overload.
