gifts of nature


The flowers on my weeping cheery tree have made way to tender green tresses. I am appreciating both the abrupt and subtle changes in my garden. These soft, peach colored daffodils mesmerize me with their whimsy.

Flowers give so much love, don’t you think?

Now that the weather has gotten a little warmer and the days are longer I find myself waking up earlier, anxious to start my day. If I am lucky I can see the sun’s rays creating beams of light through the dark morning, misty clouds. They are so magical and calming,  transporting me to a place of mystery and wonder. Just allowing this one moment each morning creates peace in my life and takes me away from the noise I wrote about in my last letter.

I am paying more attention to the subtle nuances of color and how they influence my art. The more I create, the more I feel in tune with this mysterious world I live in. Everything is absorbed into my subconscious and flows through me ~ color, light, darkness, fragile moments, memories, all of it.

 I am connected to something deeper within myself and I am grateful.

Cheery Smiles your way…
