yellow spring

Cheering for spring

In my Virginia garden yesterday – February 28, 2012 bright and sunny.  Today thunder is rumbling and rain is falling.

Kissing fish

okay so maybe the quality isn’t  in these photos.

Does make me smile though.

Watched these two do this several times, then finally got my shot in.  Photo taken February 2012, Azara Canal, Florida.

double clarity

While recovering from a back injury I have much time on my hands, but little ambulatory ability.  I have a chair pulled up to a window and my camera sits on the tripod waiting for the feeding birds.

Wishing this was in better focus, but nonetheless, loving the beautiful markings.

I tried to find some interesting folk-lore about the jay to share, this was my favorite, I think because I am currently on a journey to find clarity and truth of the heart.

“In the spiritual realm, the blue jay speaks of clarity and vision. In Native-American symbolism (namely the Sioux Nation) the azure of the jay against the blue sky indicated a “double vision” or double clarity. This visual/spiritual “blue on blue” concept speaks of purity of the soul, truth of the heart, and clarity of thought.”  Found on Yahoo

gypsies

I walk through my herb garden looking for winter beauty.  Though it has been a mild winter here and I should not complain; still I long for spring to arrive.

The beauty of the dried chive seed heads capture my heart.  Photo taken a mild January day 2012.

I read that Romanian Gypsies have used chives in fortune-telling. It was believed that bunches of dried chives hung around a house would ward off disease and evil.
