Columbine in the garden
Grackle babies in nest outside my house
Memorial Day swim at Walden pond
In my own backyard woods, also known as Franklin park in Boston, False Solomon's seal.
In the community garden, milkweed buds are growing by the minute, little earwig hiding
Raindrop in lupine leaf
Alpine strawberries - all the way from my father's garden. Someone took a little nibble.
Sunshine days and rain.
Ebony jewelwing on American chestnut in Blue Hills reservation
Indian pipe flowers, translucent, delicate.
Last, a view from a beech. Less than five minutes walk from my house there are trees to climb.
This climb was special since it was my first solo climb. Perfect concentration - remember all the different steps, knots, the order of things. It worked. Up in the canopy, the beauty and life of green - as if I was feeding on sunshine just like the leaves I'm surrounded by.
