The Value of Flowers...





"Where words fail, flowers possess the power to express
thousands of emotions.  It makes a bold statement that a single ray
of beauty can out value all the materialistic things in the world."

A Rose is a Rose is a Rose...







"What's in a name? That which we call a rose 
by any other name would smell as sweet."

The Life and Breath of the Photographer...





"It is all very beautiful and magical here---a quality which cannot be described.
You have to live it and breathe it, let the sun bake it into you.
The skies and land are so enormous, and the detail so precise and exquisite
that where you are you are isolated in a glowing world
between the macro and the micro, where everything is sidewise under and over you,
and the clocks stopped long ago."

Ansel Adams

Sadie, Sadie, Pretty Lady...



Sadie, Sadie...
Pretty Lady...


You are so very missed...


You had just enough spunk,
and a whole lot of love and cuddles to share.
(your nickname Osama Bin Kat, notwithstanding)


My snuggly little love bug...


You even nursed me through my recovery
from knee replacement surgery...


You are so very, very missed...

Rest in Peace Sweet Sadie...

For Whom the Bell Tolls...





"No man is an island,
Entire of itself.
Each is a piece of contentment,
As part of the main.
If a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less.
As well as if a promontory were.
As well as if a manor of thine own
Or of thine friend's were.
Each man's death diminishes me,
For I am involved in mankind.
Therefore, send not to know
For whom the bell tolls,
It tolls for thee."
John Donne
