I love adding quotes and sayings,

sometimes……..just simple words,

and poems too, when I really get them………….

 

Little baby calves always call to me and this one was a few springs ago.  But sometimes we need spring all year long, don’t cha think?

I call photographs like this one: A Drive-By Photo.

I have so much fun just holding my little Carl Zeiss lens Sony out the window as I’m driving.  Like little instant, fun, unexpected, movies in still-motion Photographs.

love them when I find a gem amongst the fence posts, ugly bushes and road signs (yuck)……..

August????? where did you go?

August 30, 2013

My goodness,

And I thought I was really do ok for me with my postings, or so I thought.  And now here it is the next-to-last-day of August, 2013.

I guess I was so much busier than I thought I was:

Daylily n bokeh

can’t resist.

My daughter and her love, Kawika came to visit in later August and I am one proud mama.  She is growing or I ought to say ‘has’ grown into a remarkable young woman and she has found a mate for herself that is as wonderful and beautiful as she is.

I watered my gardens this way with such love and caring hoping they would show-off their finery just for these young lovers on their first road-trip out of Washington, and they did:

Stormy August, Taos, New Mexico

Stormy August, Taos, New Mexico

lots and lots of amazing sweet, nourishing rain-storms came and gave blessing to our part of the world.  And we loved it….everyone, even those people that are use to complaining about the weather, were quiet in their verbal blessing of joy and bliss, and we got more rain:

this is what the rains brought, Blue of Taos

A few years back the meadows of El Prado turned blue, but then they didn’t. Wildflowers come in waves of differences over the time of years.  Does that make sense.  Watching the patterns are so wonderful for me,  the progression of times changing and growing.

I adore these wild flowers and they really didn’t bloom this year at all,  (actually this was taken in July of 08)  but I was missing them, because they come in waves as well.  It all depends on rain, how much we get and when.  What time of year it rains, plays a hugh part in what blooms and what doesn’t in that season.

I love this even slightly fuzzy, because it reminds me of all the big storms we’ve been having.  I adore rain, thunder and no lightning storms. Actually I love the lightning too, but NOT this year, not here.

My crowning glory this year and Rachael loved them.

Lily’s are just incredible and I really had no idea until I grew these. And their fragrance is divine…….

My daughter and her mate were coming and having a bit of a few bumps in the road getting the final details together, so I got into the uplifting, think positive quote thing going on.  I posted this on Facebook for her.  and she made it and we got to meet Kawika.  What a  joyous way to spend August, 2013.

Peace n Abundance,

white water flowers in watercolor

January 20, 2013

Last summer on one of our fishing forays out into the surrounding country-side we headed north up towards Costilla, New Mexico.  This is a wonderful drive along the western side our San de Cristo mountain range. When we come upon the Costilla (rib) turn-off and head due east, straight into the mountains themselves. We follow Costilla Creek in all it’s rich and moist greenness compared to where we live up on a high and dry, piñon covered mesa range of the mountains.  My honey fishes while I photograph anything and everything I think is beautiful.  One little spot next to the creek was so green and cool and smelled so sweet….

I’ve posted this somewhere because I love it so, but for now it inspired my still feeling under the weather brain.

so I doodled and played with three (tres) which turned into four (quatro) white (blanco) water (aqua) flowers (flores)

I used Paynes Grey, cadmium yellow pale, sap green and viridian hue green, all Winsor Newton colors.

 

Today is/was my Grandmothers birthday.  She always remembered mine because I was born two days before hers.  It was one of our special things that she shared with just me.  I miss Grandma Hogard (my father’s mother).
