An Iris or Two


Today an Iris instead of a virus, the beauty of nature bringing healing to our hearts and minds.

And the only thing better than an Iris, is more than one.

Happy Easter, Happy Passover

20180428_172027Today millions of Christians around the world will be celebrating Easter, the resurrection of Christ.

It is a season of new life. If you keep this day, may God bless you and fill you with faith and goodness.

And my Jewish friends are celebrating Passover. It is a time of remembering their freedom from slavery.

The term “Passover” comes from the night the angel of death “passed over” the people, sparing their lives. Did you know that? 

I have a number of faiths represented here and I’m very glad you’re here!

By the way the cherry blossoms and tulips are in full bloom, and the earth is bursting with spring.

Peace to each one and great blessings.

Garden Meditations


Within the twists and turns of hyacinth veins

the warmth of the sun is absorbed

into our hearts and minds

drawing us out of our shells,

encouraging us

to acknowledge life again,

and in the red fury of tulips

we are pushed beyond our loneliness

into the dreams of loves lost

and won,

even that special one.

All of this given

reminding us we are still

very much alive,

a part of each other

and the earth.
