It’s spring again!  That yearly marking point and promise of warmer days to come.  At least here in what we call the northern parts of Earth.  Various trees are beginning to flower here in California.  The rain now giving way to blue skies and the suns warmth.  I’m eating plenty of winter’s harvest of oranges now and will patiently wait for the magic of the fruit trees blossoms turning into their juicy offspring of fully developed fruits.

Dreaming of Spring?  This woman seems to be.  But it must be a large responsibility to be a guardian of the King’s castle surrounded by the beautiful rhododendrons.  Her name is Echo and lives in the gardens of Rosenborg castle in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Summertime and the living is colorful.  With flowers.  I go in spurts of buying splashes of color for the yard and garden.  Usually I get the small flats but sometimes I’ll buy seeds and plant in the fall or spring for the promise of color in summer.  Either way, it sure brings a smile out in me.

Traveling along lonely country roads is an enchanting pastime and one I thoroughly enjoy.  After some days of hiking and camping high in the Sierra, I took a few hours to slowly decompress, to get used to sitting and lighten the blow of acclimating to full blown civilization.  Not sure where this field is.  Somewhere off highway 395 along the eastern side of the central Sierras.  It’s such incredible country.  I know there are many places in the world filled with beauty and wonder.  This area is one of my favorites.

It’s not from this year, but it certainly gives the impression of winter.  It seems like I should be sad for the rose, but I’m not.  It didn’t quite have enough time to fully blossom when the force of winter took over, and that’s OK.  I like winter too.  It lends a certain air of beauty to the scene, don’t you think.

I’ve always wondered what the fascination is with this little section of San Francisco.  There are always an interesting array of folks gawking and taking photos.  I imagine a master marketer, scheming for ways to get people out west, or to this particular section of the city.  So, I include myself in the tourist line and fire away.  I was the only one with a tripod, though.

I just happen to love roses.  A few years ago I got a bit crazy with them and planted over 50 around our property.  It’s only half an acre so they kind of take over this time of year.  I haven’t been pruning them too much either so they’re starting to get pretty large within their own range of growth.  It’s pretty amazing to be walking around the yard, not paying too much attention to them when, Wham!  This incredible and intense fragrance wafts up and around.  I just stop and relish in the moment.

It’s spring again; at least here in California.  And that means that the mustard is in bloom.  Splashes of yellow, large and small, all around.  I grabbed my rusty old bike out of the barn, slung my camera bag over my shoulder and away I rode.  Less than a mile away there’s one of the big ones.  I had fun wandering around searching for good angles while the bees were buzzing for that yummy spring nectar.

I was walking around Denver’s Capital Hill area as the sun was on its way down.  It’s a beautiful area with a mix of color and gardens and sprawling lawn with artistic statues and the large architecturally significant government buildings.  Government buildings always seem large and significant.  I’m often drawn to those areas when in a city that houses government.  Not that I get into politics that much, but I sure do appreciate the thought and care and artistic beauty that usually goes into these areas.  Denver’s is no exception.
