Presenting the Calypso Orchid

wandering through the forest
cloaked in shades of green
a glimpse of violet and gold
the tiny fairy slipper

it is always a joy to see them
like magic sprinkled here and there

these are all the same orchids
photographed in morning sun, sunset, wind blew them apart,
wind blew them together:

heart shaped
i hope you enjoyed 
the lovely calypso orchid


Intimate and Vast Montana

an intimate view
teeny tiny little kinnikinnick flowers
like fairy lanterns scattered amongst the forest floor

a vast Montana view

wild apple blossoms grace our trees

at their crowns
trees grow

some nights still freeze
bird bath water




Perfect Life

i found this budding beauty
rising from a mound of moss
at the base of an abundant waterfall

i see tender attention
loving protection
reminiscent  of two lovers, caring friends
or mother and child

i have no idea what plant it is
i see new life

Happy Mother's Day


Feathers Flowers & Fur

I sat near this nest for a while
watching the female await his (Osprey) return

landing had to be just right

just a fly by

busy little squirrel
has been digging up last autumns stores of small pine cones 
and eating non-stop

I had the great pleasure of Canada Geese and goslings
visit my ponds! 

lovely and tiny spring beauty
also known as fairy spuds, but it would be a shame to dig them up for the tiny fairy sized spud

Spring is truly coming to life!
