I Listened To The Wind

By Heather / June 22, 2020

I listened to the wind today. I heard it calling and beckoning to me. “Come play,” it said… “come play”. Then blew the grass sideways and laughed. The trees bent their branches under its force. Their trunks swaying as it pushed against their upright bodies and then snapped back into place as the air passed […]

Letting Go

By Heather / June 9, 2020

I failed. I can’t believe it. I have the perfect opportunity to do some “letting go” and I completely missed it. Okay… so I’m sound asleep and around 6 am I become wide awake with a cramp in my foot. It’s a charlie horse and it feels like the sides of my soles are trying […]

Daily Photo – Cut To The Quick

By Heather / May 18, 2020

Years ago I was cut to the quick. By whom… I never knew. One day I was hanging out in the forest enjoying the day and the next minute, the pain! I never dreamed that this could possibly happen to me. It was a long time ago but I can still remember the burning and […]

Daily Photo – Wood Frog

By Heather / May 17, 2020

I came across this little wood frog in a mountain ash tree. Normally the berries are red but this was still early in the season and they are still yellow with a pink blush on their way to crimson. The little frog caught my eye and I could hardly wait to take a photo of […]

Daily Photo – Camo on the Beach

By Heather / May 16, 2020

I was walking along the beach one day after the tide had gone out and found this specimen laying in the gravel. Seeing it from a distance my first thought was someone had discarded a piece of camouflage material. You always get the most interesting things coming in on the tide. But as I got […]

Daily Photo – Kaleidoscope

By Heather / May 13, 2020

Like a kaleidoscope of colour, this Queen Anne’s lace caught my eye. Just starting to come into bloom the opening flowers make unusual shapes and textures. When in full bloom they look like upside-down white lace umbrellas. Here they grow wild along the roadside and fields and parts of the plant are actually edible. It’s […]

Daily Photo – Innocence

By Heather / May 11, 2020

This dear little Inca dove always reminds me of total innocence. According to Webster it means: Innocence means you’ve done nothing wrong. You’ve broken no laws, committed no sins, and are not guilty of any morally evil act. Oxford says: The notion of innocence refers to children’s simplicity, their lack of knowledge, and their purity not yet spoiled by […]

Daily Photo – Sprites

By Heather / May 6, 2020

Walking on the trail I could hear them before I saw them. They were always anxious to talk and play and even walk with me a while. Very social but few people saw or heard them and they had little contact with the human world except to watch them go by. Dogs were a little […]

Daily Photo – The Rebel

By Heather / May 5, 2020

Standing straight and tall with his roots above ground is the rebel. Not for him to have his nether parts safely under the ground and out of sight. Not for him the norm of splaying his roots to get a better hold to the earth. When the wind blows he holds on with his nails […]

Daily Photo – The Eye of a Tulip

By Heather / May 3, 2020

Sometimes what’s on the inside is even more glorious than the out. As with this tulip that I photographed as the sun was shining through it. Making the petals almost seem transparent. The anthers on the stamen are ripe with pollen waiting for the bees to alight and spread the yellow gold dust. Reminding me […]
