Beltane 2014

we are
halfway between the spring equinox and the summer solstice

flowers raise their lovely faces

to the sun

cloaked in leaves

glacier lilies breathe

until the perfect moment to bloom

flower season has JUST begun

it amazes me
to find tiny succulents
that have lived beneath winter's snow

I am still in love
with the new buds on the tops of fir trees


  1. Such wonderful spring magic! The tiny Beltane like a shower of stars and those so delicate glacier lilies belying their looks and showing their inner strength.

  2. so many beautiful images of spring emerging... that glacier lily is stunning. we have lots of flowers blooming around here too. it's wonderful seeing all that color... have a great day~

  3. Oh Tammie Lee, I'm with you in the WONDER department. We are finally getting some spring and the daffodils are shooting their green blades up, the yellow forsythia is in bloom, and I don't think I've ever been this excited about spring. We had a long hard winter, and we are ready. Lovely flowers, and thank you so much for coming by! Anita

  5. It's the best part of Spring.
    Especially the tiny buds.
