The sun peeked through the trees and illuminated this lovely lavender lady just as I entered the garden. I had parked the car shortly after dawn, strapped on my camera and excitedly walked across the partly dark road into the entrance. Always a morning person, I greet each day with optimism and enthusiasm, and the prospect of meeting new kinds of beauty for the first time is especially stimulating. I believe this curiosity and optimistic interest has been a major factor in keeping me alive and healthy for so long. I hope you enjoy this portrait of Lavender Lady, a Colorado Columbine, and a new day before you.

I walked past many blooming crabapple trees on the way to school in the small east coast town I grew up in. I remember their pinkness and the dark cherry colored, dare to eat one, tart fruit. They were just part of the background and landmarks on a long walk as I told myself ” I hope I’m not late.”Today, walking at a more deliberate pace I looked closely at a blossom of prairie crabapple tree and for a moment I saw a little girl wearing a pink, ruffled spring dress. The memory of myself as an innocent youth brought a momentary sweet melancholy.
