Evening Light II

Shadow of the blogger

Evening Light

The golden sunlight
Thick, paints the evening landscape
Before the sunset.

Through the golden sunlight
White cottonwood seed fluffs float
On the evening air.

Evening Showers

Across the valley
The layering of gray clouds
Forecasts evening rain.

Thunder in the canyon rolls off the mountains.  At the top of the mountain, last night's thunder boomed as if I was in the clouds.

Dog sitting with Chula & Chaco

 Chula, an active dog always ready for fun!

Chaco is new to the family but eager to please.  Oh, and I forgot Rosie the tarantula.

Ogden Arts Festival

I assisted in the Children's Art Yard at the Ogden Arts Festival.  Along with volunteers and staff of the Eccles Community Art Center,  I assisted children in the creation of treasure boxes.

My brother and nephew participated.

My Mother's Garden

A burst of color
Beds of blossoms, buds, foliage -
My mother's garden.


A stepping stone path
Winds through colorful blossoms;
My mother's garden.

More Orange

Ymm!  Iceland poppies!

Bright crinkled petals
Unfurl from their prickly buds;
The blooms of poppies.
