Saturday, April 7, 2012 entirely different view...

we think too small, 
like the frog at the bottom of the well. 
he thinks the sky is only as big as the top of the well. 
if he surfaced, he would have an entirely different view.
Mao Tse-Tung

the sun is shining brightly.
trying hard to hide the fact.
that it is twenty-nine degrees.
the flower gardens are forced.
to wear a blanket.
to keep the frost at bay.
i must protect blue's ferns at all costs.
the weekend has the makings to be beautiful.
enjoy your weekend.
may you find many moments that take your breath away.
just BE.

photo shoot this week of 
emma grace.

What a beautiful, pure face.
Shining like the sun,
Your Emma Grace!

Happy Easter to you and the family.

The frog sits silent, perhaps thinking about Sprig, and being cold blooded, wondering about the 29 degrees too. It is April, and the warmth may be a tease now - but it is really on its way...Emma has that look of one whose job it is to discover something new - always. A wonderful capture. Happy Easter to you and yours

Oh, look at her - so cuuuuute!
It's the same here - spring but not snow though (except in the woods).
Happy weekend!

Our snow has gone, and although it has been a bit grey, it isn't too cold!

Joan said...

Emma Grace is adorable.
Yes, sometimes we do think too small.
Have a wonderful Easter week-end.

Emma Grace in shadows or Emma Grace in light--just right!

Will She Forgive Us?

Sweet, sweet Emma grace! It seems unfair that the cold lingers so long where you are.
