The Month of May

When we are young and gay;
We chased the bees and plucked the flowers,
In the merry, merry month of May.”
Stephen Foster

Gaia

There is no glory in star or blossom till looked upon by a loving eye; There is no fragrance in April breezes till breathed with joy as they wander by.
William C. Bryant

Stop.
Take a look around you.
Find beauty and renewal in the air, land and sea.
These are the gifts Gaia gave to us.
Let’s not ruin them.

Enjoy Earth Day!

Spring Blossoms

Bee to the blossom,
moth to the flame;
Each to his passion;
what’s in a name?

The smell of the Blossoms catch dievca each Spring. she has to stop and take a moment to immerse herself in the Joy.


Blossoms

At the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam there is a gorgeous installation of flower lights that drop and open — softer petals. I have photos, but the videos are a better look.
