Sunday, May 13, 2012 - Columbines

Dear God:

Today, I am thankful for columbines.

The blue columbine is the state flower of Colorado. Alas, I don't think blue ones ever graced my gardens. Nevertheless, I don't miss the official  variety - the ones that emerge every spring in my backyard garden are as lovely as any I have seen in the high mountain meadows.

I shot the first two columbine portraits first thing in the morning after the night's gentle rainfall and the others later in the afternoon.

Although my mother dreams of spring lilacs, I think she'd love a bouquet of my columbines.

These are for you, Mom. Happy Mother's Day!


 For this blessing, I am grateful.
