A cherished friend was born on this day. She had no agenda, no pretense. Her heart was open to those who needed a friend. In her memory, simple gifts.


Friendship Flowers Smiles Sight Sunrise Music Laughter Rain Hope Hugs Poetry Peace



Time swift

Hearts shift

Hands lift

Minds drift



I am here
You are there
Do gracious spirits fill the air
Sunrise surprise
Softly offers love’s reply
Pure light so bright
My heart takes flight
Anticipating your embrace
Until then

      From a distance, the first photo of the iris looked like an angel. Had to capture it. That’s the way it is for me with blooms – I can’t seem to photograph enough of them and I’m happy to share.

      1. acflory says:

        Keep ’em coming Honie. 🙂 Your blooms make a great start to the day, along with the coffee of course. Can’t wake up without coffee.

    This is just Beautiful: the pictures, the message in between and the melody which once you discover it you play it and go through the whole thing all over again!
    Happy Easter!
