- PEACE - JOY - LOVE -

Today . . .


                           as I was walking home I captured this moment:


and I thought . . . yes . . . me too . . . and I thought of all the pictures I have taken, for free, leaving all the jars, in peace . . . and I want to share my flowers with you:




    Spring Time     memories



Dainty daisies in the grass

This one, in memory of Shane, who drowned near my house this past Spring. The children have put up quite a nice memorial for him here at their favorite swimming hole. May you have peace in your resting place, Shane . ..

 This one in memory of all the bees and other insects which work so hard in our environment . . .  watch them . . . you will be amazed at the diversity and necessity of these small creatures.


Peace


        And


            Joy






   

This one in memory and awe of Nature's return . . . it never fails us . ..  if we let it be . . .





This one is for awe .  .  .
















We are always so delighted
 and amazed


            And we are always so
grateful
to have the flowers . . .






And thus we know that we have Love!     PEACE - JOY - LOVE . . . . may it never end for you!

I felt, as summer came to a close; and I saw the leaves begin to fall and the smoke from the fireplaces rise; a reluctance to let the carefree days of summer leave me with no place to go . .. so I wandered through the sunset and into the full moon . .. thinking of all the summers' past . .. and I thought of the promise of Autumn, like the promise of the sunset, that the circle of life is complete and continues . . . and someday, Summer will return . .. that is the promise in these waning days, that life goes on, through the gray days and the bright days.

Beautiful pictures indeed, tribute to mother nature, and for free, that is why we should care and take care of this beauty.
I like very much the new look of your blog.

Love and Peace M^^W

Syl, thank you for your comment . ..all the flowers are real except the ones on Shane's memorial . . . but it was so amazing . . . all the decorations the children put around on that ledge above the river . . . I captured just a tiny portion.

Thank you PM . . . I was going to ask you what you thought of the change . . . I think the pictures pop out a little better with the gray. I agree with you that nature is generous in its beauty . .. and harsh also . . . witness Shane, just a kid who wanted to play in the water. We need to respect nature in all its glory and strength . .
