Normally, I zoom in on individual blooms to show the intricate beauty of the flower. Right now the backyard is coming alive with Clematis & Roses. The Fuchsia & Hydrangea are coming soon. I put together a collage of just a few blooming plants. I am excited for beauty about to explode into view. It is unfortunate that I am going to be laid low for several months due to a surgery. Mobility will be limited. But, as time and energy allows, I will try to capture some of the beauty I fantasized about all Winter long. Such is life…the ebb & flow.
A couple images, ten days apart. The first with afternoon light and the second this morning’s light. The Rhododendron has burst forth and recent heavy rains have battered the blooms down a bit. The Dogwood leaves have grown and the Dogwood flowers holds on. I so enjoy morning light on the flowers in the yard.
“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be
satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
