Blackberry sidewalk sampled - some Lisa NZ leaves and other "odds and ends" from Japan. Detail, below.

This is a redbud on our front lawn, one of my favorite spring flowering trees. Blackberry pic, again, this morning on way to the train.

Not much time for these days - I am working late many nights and have other pressing matters....alas.

Bird photography is difficiult - this photographer is amazing....I stumbled on it tryiong to identify a bird that my blog friend Jean Levert Hood had at her feeder. I cannot tell but am guessing the bird is a house finch.

The size of the picture is too small to get many details, other than size, behavior, and shape.

For Neda, who recently shut down her blog. She had a list of blogs and many of those who visit I met directly through her art, her poetry and her graciousness. Detail below, a small bouquet sent to Austin.

A simple study or a rushed best.

One of my favorite parts of The Everglades is The Pinelands near the park entrance. A few feet above sea level, the area is drier and has pine groves as well as a lot of scrub and undergrowth including palmetto palms. I have seen eastern bluebirds and many species of warblers there. My first barred owl was up in a high old pine, sleeping. Marie and I have come back at night and heard whippoorwills calling.

This, again, sampled mostly from Eduard - Dutch in origin, still there is a hint of a Japanese rhododendron blossom towards the left hand side.

I have not been to Florida for a couple of years.


Detail of a cousin along the way:

I understand honey bee populations are declining rapidly in the United States.

Two cherry trees - each a beautiful photograph - one near Tokyo and another from The Netherlands at the cusp of Belgium. Blended on Long Island into an iced tea of sorts...intoxicating. Yes, and also an image of a magical small ball on a park bench.

Below, a detail. My best.

Sampled from Irene's blog, based on tree photos taken by her former husband. Irene is a a sweetheart. My best on a Monday morn. Back to work.

So, it is clear now that the Easter bunny has a day job, but does that mean the is getting better or worse?

Outside my window is a tree.


Back to Japan - the same tulip and Tokyo finds. Happy Easter, if you celebrate it.

Life and mystery and joy and wonder reflected. A lake, a tulip, shared. Simply sampled spring.

Below a detail of a cousin along the way...I am smiling. My best.

Lately all work, family, sleep, no play. I did take this photo out my office window - that is mid town Manhattan. Have a new Blackberry with a camera. Also downloaded on it a game of chess that I have yet to beat the machine.


Listening to early Flying Burrito Brothers and old Credence albums. For years I just had a two two "Chronicles" greatest hits and they just re-mastered the old discs so I bought three albums ("Born on the Bayou," "Green River" and "Willie and the Poorboys")that they put out all in 1969. I had all them in vinyl when in high school and for a few months they were my favorite band. I never listened to the Flying Burrito Brothers back then.

I highly recommend "Hot Burritos! The Flying Burrito Bros. Anthology 1969-1972" - great sound and value.

I also have been listening much for weeks to Beach Boys "Pet Sounds."

I am dreaming of spring birds and of morning light - warm and refreshing. No time for art as of late. Thanks for your visits and comments. Fighting of the flu.
