  10. Tammie: These babies look refreshed. I'm sure you were as well. I like the slant rhymes that run through your poem: thirst / fulfill / essential / nurturing / future.

    Love seeing the flowers with drops on them. That is cool!!!!! Great photos.

    As the trash trucks bumped and banged outside and the dark morning clouds refused to let the sun shine I thought to myself, "I need a nature fix." Ah! I'll go to Tammie's blog and see what she has posted. Yes there it is, colors, flowers, open range, room to breath, a reminder of another kind of life that is steeped in nature, that tickles my soul and gives me a lift to start my day.

  49. I love it when you photograph the droplets on the flowers. The flowers must love the water too.

    I watched that Maori movie Once a warrior, and now I am reading the sequel. I was told it caused a lot of grief among the elders. Too much stereo typing of the bad things they do.
