I'm back from my hiatus

Well, I have decided to start blogging again. I apologize to my followers for being so absent, but life has been difficult in the last few months.

Recent events have included health issues (which I am working on), regular yoga (which is slowly changing my life and I love, love, love!) and currently not working. So I am staying home with the dogs, working in the garden when I have the energy and trying to figure out what I want to do with the rest of my life.

Here are some recent pictures from the garden of the poppies in bud. I love how the hairs on the buds are so distinctive. They look like some type of alien plant/lifeform.


I also took some pictures of my bleeding heart. To get a close up, I had to use my flash and the macro setting on my lens, hence the almost black background.

I will leave you with some final pictures of an Angelique tulip that I planted 5 years ago. As the plant ages, it appears to be losing pigment. Interesting...
