spring has begun to melt winter away
and yet today 2 inches plus snow graced our world.....

a couple weeks ago
ice crystals cloaked the forest trees:


and so the slow dance begins
of winter into spring

  30. Lovely Green Lady Tammie!!!

    My Momma would have been 79 on St. Patrick's Day...I can't even imagine that. So we shared something deep and eternal in missing our loved ones.

    Your sharing was very poignant and beautiful as well as heart touching Tammie.

    (((Thinking of You)))

  35. She's got a dream like quality, and, her green hair looks beautiful! It's great to remember your father. My dad would have been the same age, had I not lost him when he was 46. Makes me wonder often how he would have been.

  36. Oh, Tammie, this is a beautiful drawing. She has a dreamy, faraway gaze. I love these colors. Happy birthday to your dear father. He is surely smiling.

    I miss the transitions between seasons. So much back and forth drama. It's kind of exciting, never knowing what the next day brings.

    Hugs to you.
