Fairbanks, Alaska | July 2012

I never tasted a flower so sweet when spread on toast as a jam.


Silver Lake Park, 3 Rivers District | MN 2012

As I walk around the park, with my furry companion
We pass the trees that have new blooms
I wish I knew the name of the trees
The blooms are so fragrant
I am drawn to the nearest branch
where Spring fills the senses

White Flower Bud 2010

Banning State Park| Sandstone, MN 2010

Life bursts all at once
last of the frost has melted away
while the river moves with fierce intent
there is a symphony of sights, sounds and smells

The river bottom is lush
even in an early spring hike
Blooms appear brighter
greens appear calmer
