FOTD—Bluets

Cee’s FOTD Photo Challenge

Bluet

What delight Spring brings on the heels of a never-ending bleakness buried in snow.

Before the grass grows tall, the shoots of violets, bluets, and trout lily dance atop the forest floor. Before the grand tree canopies, the floral bouquet is gathered to adore.

After we succumb to woodland fragrance, the bumble and honey bee dance to wax and wane their appetite. After the world awakes, we rest in slumber for time’s sake.

To remember the wildflower dotting the woodlands come September will prove beauty’s allure!

Thursday Doors

Sarasota Florida has marvelous doors. The weather is grand too. You might decide to stay outdoors when visiting. Although when the humidity is too high, the luxury of air-conditioned indoors might suit you.

The area I stayed is an artist’s colony. The Ringling Museum of Art is nearby. That will be a destination on my next visit in October.

the first step is key
not recommended to look
backwards is fateful

Join the door fun and let Norm 2.0 know you are participating! I was infatuated with doors for ever and realized so many others are equally in love with the symbol, so linking with other door fanatics seemed the next best step! Or do it on your own. Either way, cheers 🍻!

Sewn (reblog)

I dabble in photography and this blog i share (see link below) always satisfies when read, with varying ways photos impact. Click link to see work displayed. This particular post is especially drawn to me as a quilter, lover of fabric and the process of piecing together lives.

“For over a decade, Sewn has taken shape from altered, chopped, merged, and recomposed photographs. …

By engaging with the photography in this way, I create work that deals with the notions of truth in photography and its impact on identity. Using family photographs and those from my family’s past albums as material for the work, the resulting imagery tells a “new truth” with reimagined memories, situations, and experiences.”
