27 April

the tulips have gone by 

and wait by the back door to be planted in the bulb garden

the good

there is a peacefulness that comes from

enjoying the pleasure of one's own company

the random

a new starbucks has opened just up the way from us

i was there this morning to buy some ground coffee

the fun

of  an afternoon we walk the path through the wood to the playground

and use our imaginations to make believe that the old willow trees

are castles on the edge of an old sea


  1. Love that first shot. What a great macro, the colors are superb.
