Harbinger of Spring

Every year, it is a surprise to see my redbud trees blooming. It always feels like they have blossomed overnight. For me, there is always something so hopeful about these little pink flowers on those bare branches. Spring really is coming! Better days are around the corner! I feel grateful when I see them.

Anthropomorphic Carvings

I think this is one of my all-time favorite cemetery statues.
Is that despair or mourning or regret I see?
Someone said they thought she was praying.
I wish I'd had more time to spend with her. She might have had something to say to me, and I to her.

The Bird Quotes CS Lewis

I went out to take pictures this past weekend and was sitting in the car trying to decide if I was going to get out and walk around looking for pictures. I was at our Civic Center and there were people all around. I am kind of funny about getting out in public with my camera. I am always afraid people will think I think I am this great photographer and I always want them to know that I do not think that at all, that I'm just out there entertaining myself and that sometimes I just see things that need to have their picture taken. Anyway, the bird kept sitting in this tree that was very close to my car, and staring at me, as if he was daring me to get out and take his picture! When I finally decided to commit to getting out of the car the bird moved to a tree that was a little farther away and so I did not get the closeup I was hoping to get.

And the quote, oh it is one I need to hear. That's all I'll say about that.
