Hunt for Wildflowers

For the next couple of weekends we will be on the road with our photo group in the quest of wildflowers in Southern California. Though we have enough rainfall, we need the ever powerful for the flowers to open and bring smiles to us.

This past Saturday, we traveled through the different Southern California State routes to check out the colors in lowlands and in highlands.

From Temecula

through the mountains towards Anza Borrego Desert Park

traversing around Borrego Springs

checking out the metal sculptures along the way

the end result?

more flowers to come!

Taken on March 26, 2011 with my new camera, and I have not read the manual yet for its features.

Unity in Prayers

The skies gloom
disaster and turmoil in Japan
our hearts ache

Cherry blossoms everywhere
it is springtime we celebrate
blooms this season

Unity in prayers
Calmness our hearts we feel
Let us help

I have 2 cousins in Japan, south of the disaster area, with 9 children between the two of them. Everyone is fine but it is a scary feeling.

Peace, I give to you…
