Everything is blooming most recklessly; if it were voices instead of colors, there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night.
~Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters of Rainer Maria Rilke
Unbelievably, spring has begun with gusto! A couple of weeks ago my youngest two daughters and I took our annual trek to a beautiful working ranch in the Sierra foothills that the beautiful acres and acres of daffodils planted there. This year because of our mild winter and low rain fall, Daffodil Hill opened up nearly a month earlier than usual and as it only stays open for a few short weeks we needed to act fast. So a spur of the moment field trip was in order!
I also had fun taking some top down images of a few flowering plum branches. And I couldn't forget the planter of oh-so-popular succulents sitting in my windowsill!
And lastly, while looking through the images I had just imported into Light Room I came across several (as in a couple dozen!) images all taken by my 9 year old. Nearly all were out of focus (she's too impatient to actually wait for the lens to focus before taking her shot) but I could tell she was having fun. She snapped this of me while I opened up a package containing my new calligraphy supplies. This is one image that she really loved so I included it.
