Today we were listen to a song sung by Dolly Parton The song was about wildflowers being uprooted and transplanted. As we both listened, we got tears in our eyes which is amazing because my husband doesn’t get teary eyed too often. It sounded like she was singing to us. It is funny how songs affect you at various times in your lives. It was very pretty. Feel free to listen to it if you would like to…
Have a good day…I think music is the icing on the cake of life. Just a thought for today. Wildflowers and pretty pictures are not bad either!

Last weekend, I went to a local flower show. There were so many beautiful flowers there, but this strange-looking orchid caught my eye . It has personality and a human looking appearance to me. I see a face and body that is quite fascinating to me for sure. I do not know what it is called. Maybe you do and can tell me. If not, maybe you will just enjoy seeing my creature orchid as I did.
Nature has done it again and produced an amazing creature flower. Have a good day! Thank you for stopping by…

America at its best…The Cross Fitness Group was pushing about a 800 pound sleigh through the town of Redlands at the annual, “Run Through Redlands” today. They did this at the 5K walk in honor and remembrance of those lost and hurt at the Boston Marathon. Cross Fitness members called this event, “Pushing for Boston”…This was very touching to see. To walk beside them was so powerful to me as well. When one member was tired of pushing, another member took their place. It was really beautiful… This was a very spiritual event for sure….more than a walk…

In California, we love green energy. So what do we do, build windmills to harness “free energy’ from the air. This process cost an arm and leg, I’m told, but well worth the effort producing good clean energy and saving our planets resources.
Now, the environmentalist are happy about the green energy that is capture, but unfortunately other environmentalist are up in arms about the eagles that fly by and are hurt or killed by the rotating blades of the windmills. It seems, we can not win for losing out here. I do feel bad for the eagles. They need to be protected for sure, but where is the thin line?
Life sure get complicated…If the windmills air could be reversed and blow the eagles away from the blades someway, that might help this situation….Maybe they could put a safety net around the blades like they do for boat propellers to save sea animals such as the manatees and seals… There must be a way to save the eagles and have green energy at the same time….

April 6, 2013, the town of Redlands, CA had The Annual Redlands Bicycle Classic. I was fortunate to watch the Ladies finals. It was an exciting race with many cycles competing in the race. As you can see they race very close to each other. It was a bit too close for comfort for me…but still exciting to watch….

The other day, while visiting Lake O’Neil, CA, we parked our RV near some Bird of Paradise bushes. As I sat there enjoying the view, a hummingbird came and visited the bush. Being the photographer that I am, I went directly into the camper, and got my long lens and camera. Then, I went back outside and sat there waiting for the hummer to come back for another drink of nectar. Pretty soon, he returned and I was able to snap this image. I sure enjoyed taking a few moments to focus on the beauty of the moment and capture this shot.
