“People from a planet without flowers

would think we must be mad

with joy the whole time

to have such beauty around us.”

Iris Murdoch

Red is the color of my soul according to a silly fun quiz. After a few days without internet I googled for a few hours, rode around town with this incredible manual f/2 135mm lens and found a marvelous garden. The red poppies called at me… And then I found out that the color of my soul is red.

“Red is the color of fire and blood, so it is associated with energy, war, danger, strength, power, determination as well as passion, desire, and love. You are a fireball! Fiesty but warm, you are friendly when handled with care. But the moment someone screws up… Watch out! They might just get burned.”

I might have to retake that test…

What color is your soul?

“Fireworks”, Alaska

Summer wildflowers abound. There were violets, skunk cabbage, pasque flowers, dandelions, western columbines, poppies, prickly roses, lupines, buttercups, and so many more.


“The earth laughs in flowers.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson


I picked the first raspberries… How can this be? 8 weeks ago there was snow and ice. Now it is mid summer, already? Note to self: Don’t look back, don’t wait for tomorrow, smell the wildflowers of today (since the roses are already gone).
