Just One Planet Earth

This is a painting I decades ago, part of what my husband called my "Star Trek" series.  From time to time, I have reposted it, especially for Earth Day.  Well, Gertrude Stein said that there is no such thing as repetition, only insistence.  So I am posting this again today because it is true, there is "Just One Planet Earth."

Daffodils (with Prisma filter)

We took a walk after dinner and found daffodils blooming, so I took some pictures.  I decided to add a Prisma filter to this one.

Forythia Blooming

I took this photo during a walk around the neighborhood.  Temperatures are in the 60s and everything seems to be blooming at once.

Snowdrops at Long Hill Gardens

This image is from a walk at Long Hill Gardens back on April 7, 2019.  Flowers were just started to poke through the leaves.  Here north of Boston, spring comes slowly, but I have learned to appreciate the pleasures of a cold spring day and brave flowers with promises of more to come.

Seen in my yard: Korean Rhododendron decided to bloom today!  I took some pictures, and cropped one of the best to get this composition.

Spring Begins

We went for a walk at Long Hill Gardens over a week ago (April 7th), and some of the earliest flowers were starting to bloom.  I liked these brave little guys poking through the leaves.  This is how spring begins.  Tonight I cropped the original photo to get this composition,
