on this day

I thought about transition

marveled at the parallel of nature and life

one pot..one plant that hummingbirds feast upon

each branch in varying degrees of change

...blooms.growth.colors.shapes...

just like me

I'm glad I found this blog. Few words. Wonderfilled pictures. Poetry. This post has inspired me to post a poem I wrote years ago. I may or may not be able to find a picture to go with it.

Yours is a restful blog for me. A deep breath. Inspires reflection.

Thank you.
Heidi

A terrific sequence. The second shot in particular is wonderfully abstract. I've never seen this plant so that was fascinating too.
