First Peek

"First Peek"
original photograph by artist

A small but lovely treat from this past Easter holiday weekend! I had bought a Martha Washington geranium for the deck and just before sunset took this shot with my new macro lens. I love the way the tip of the bud just peeks over the edge, a small curl of new blossom ready to unfurl.

This morning I was out in my bathrobe and at 7:30am because clouds were beginning to roll in, and I wanted to catch the morning light on the star magnolia and the anna magnolia, both totally different in form and color. Thunderstorms were predicted so I wasn't sure if the blossoms would still be there when I came home from work. I hope to upload those later in the week.

As we move further into spring, I know I'll be running around with the camera like a crazy woman -- but what a way to go!

May dawn find you awake and alert, approaching your new day with dreams,
possibilities and promises. May evening find you gracious and fulfilled. May you go into
the night blessed, sheltered and protected. May your soul calm, console and renew you.
(Celtic Blessing)

Luzia -- Yes, magic color is right -- the sunset was just kissing those petals ever so lightly -- glad I was able to catch it!
