  1. Gorgeous. I agree, spring is a time of fresh starts and hope above all else. :)

  2. Love all the photos and especially the fence with blue flowers!

  3. Hi Karyn and Cowgirl! Thank you so much for visiting and for your lovely comments. Happy Fall and Spring to you! There is certainly a fresh-start feeling here and it was definitely in the air on the blue-sky day when I took a serendipitous walk in a neighboring town. I felt especially alive to the simple and lovely sounds and sights of ongoing life. In the midst of the world’s natural and man-made struggles, it made me feel optimistic.

  4. Love your photos, beautiful! Great website.

  5. I want to go to Larkspur! Not only is that my favorite flower, it looks like a cute little town. Happy Spring!

  6. Hi Jarl and Mel! Thank you so much for your lovely comments. Yes, I love both the town and the flower Larkspur. You might be amused to know that the woman who named the town supposedly meant to name it after the lupine! Larkspur turns out to be a much prettier name. Happy Spring!
