How Grows It?

A Circus Circus Carrot sprouts from seed in the shade of a Russian Mammoth Sunflower.

Between obligations, I make time to nurture myself in our backyard sanctuary by spending time in the garden.  Yesterday’s hours were spent extracting grass from the strawberry patch, transplanting tomatoes, decommissioning sweet peas, and pausing to appreciate the bright green hope of new growth in old dirt.

I typically take passing shots with my mobile device from the passenger seat of a car, trying to catch a fleeting glimpse of the day’s destination.  Today, I am sharing the view of yesterday’s artwork from a stationary chair in my make-shift studio.

Snapping photographs with my mobile device from the passenger seat of a car usually requires a bit of editing before I publish it to my creative diary.   This endearing image was taken during a recent visit to Valley Springs, California.

There are not many days that I don’t catch myself thinking about Vermont, the Green Mountain State, my former home of twenty-three years.  My friends are enduring another long winter of sub-zero temperatures that ruin their cheerful dispositions.  They too, have got the blues for the greens.
