Flood Plain

Normally a quiet little brook in the backyard, the rains have come and the flooding resumes. The hardy vegetation will be covered in no time but will flower in bright yellow blossoms in mid April.

Looks like a beautiful redhead gazing towards the sandy shore. Nope... it is the failed close-up of rooster plumage, as he struts around the scrappy yard of the local park zoo.

Fabulous Forsythia

A wall of golden delight explodes and illuminates the dull landscape. The first blast of Spring's color leads the way for the parade of pastels that will follow.

Good bye little friend

So gracefully posed even in death, the last dance of my spider friend did not go unnoticed. Bravo!

Spring Bouquet

An early Spring Bouquet... brought to you by Mother Earth. No vase needed.

Like Magick

One day they were woody sticks devoid of color... as if on cue from the balmy breeze of an unseen wizard's wand, these hydrangea buds appeared to sprout as if by magick.

Baby Goat

It was hard to get this frisky little goat to stand still long enough for a photo through the wires of a fence. Perhaps he was thinking for a moment, do I eat or do I play? A second later, playing was the answer.

Cala Lilies

A trip to the supermarket at the start of Spring and behold... mini cala lilies found their way into my cart!

Nature's Litter

Leaves, twigs, a pod, a feather. Colors and patterns of Nature's fallen debris.

Fire Dance

There is nothing so spellbinding as the dance of the flames from a ceremonial fire. Gazing in fascination one truly becomes mesmerized.

Rise and Shine

A proud rooster struts his shiny plumage... memories of that familiar wake up call from my early childhood... cock-a doodle-doo, translates to rise and shine!

Happy Spring

A choir of Croci bask in the Sun and sing a song celebrating Spring.

In the dark before the dawn, the shriveled berries of the Beauty Bush hold the snow, pretending to be Pussy Willows.

Gazing Through Mesh

The overcast eye of the Sun peers through the tattered mesh of a viewing screen, wooing Winter's waning hurrah.

Tangled and Deflated

What was once a carefree fun... has drifted away, become deflated, and is tangled in the blue.

Floodplain Races

It was a race to the riverbank in the turbid waters of the flooded stream. A determined winner and complacent loser.... why it's no race at all.

Why is it that sometimes other people's junk is so interesting?

Imaginary Biker

From a distance this looked like a biker racing home against the backdrop of a cloud-filled sky. On close-up it is just a twisted pine branch lying against the receding snow.

Bramble Screen

Quiet as a white tailed deer, I peek through the tangle of branches and vines, wondering what it would be like to live in a cabin deep in the heart of the woods.

Eye of Fire

You stare into the fire... and sometimes she stares back with a face and a message that only you can recognize and comprehend.

Thursday, March 11, 2010


Due South of the old cellar window, a dreamy crocus flower pokes her sleepy head out from the leaves to sniff the Springtime air and bask a bit in the sun.

Splish Splash

A chilly rain... kinda blue, kisses the sidewalk. The reflection of an old journeyman waves as he points his silver sword beyond the edges of the littered landscape.

Taming the Wind

As the March winds blow, I think of the cross country trip we took this summer and dream of more windmills dotting the landscape. Go green!

Dressed in winter white, hinting at the coming Spring, laughing at snowmelt.

View from a Balcony

Looking out through the tree tops, a canvas is painted with black, white, and turquoise within the mind's eye.

Pinck Snow

I practice magick, my name is Tinck, I wave my wand and snow is pinck.

Friday, March 5, 2010


Standing under the the snow clad cedar while looking up to the sunlit sky... I thought I saw a thousand monarchs ready for flight... if only for a fleeting moment.

Snow Hammock

A little hammock of snow lies sloping in the crevices of the lichen crusted tree bark... as a wisp of fresh purity against the weathered knowledge of an ancient past.

Icy Fingers

The hardy evergreen shrub welcomes the touch of icy fingers that melt in dripping to quench the thirst of the roots below.

Beloved Gypsy

A discriminating graze of sticks amongst the track laden snow... then my gypsy friend will venture closer to nimble my bushes when my face disappears from the window.

Sigh of a Rose Lip

Pink fleshy lipstick surrounds a wry sigh.... the edge of a rose petal stimulates thoughts of kisses.
