Spring, at long last, has arrived

Rainbow Warrier Tulip  This beautiful Tulip is called Rainbow Warrior. After days, nay weeks of grey cold days this sight yelled “spring is really here”.

The landscape does look like a fairyland with the redbud, dogwood and cherry trees dressed in flowers. The azaleas, Virginia Bluebells and Phlox (Locals here call it Thrift.) are doing their part to brighten the scene.

 I am grateful for the color, for the beauty and the surprise of finding stray flowers on the grass.

Back to Beauty

The beauty of flowers amazes me. These azaleas are at the home of a friend- mine bloomed two months ago.

The Navajo Night Way Ceremony

In beauty may I walk
All day long may I walk
Through the returning seasons may I walk
Beautifully I will possess again
Beautifully birds
Beautifully joyful birds
On the trail marked with pollen may I walk
With grasshoppers about my feet may I walk
With dew about my feet may I walk
With beauty may I walk
With beauty before me may I walk
With beauty behind me may I walk
With beauty above me may I walk
With beauty all around me may I walk
In old age, wandering on a trail of beauty,
lively, may I walk
In old age, wandering on a trail of beauty,
living again, may I walk
It is finished in beauty
It is finished in beauty
