adult coloring

Nestled in the leaves

One stem at a time, then bloom

Fiddleheads salute.

Art Prescription:  With my sketchbook and a box of colored pencils, I headed off to the North Carolina Botanical Garden in search of the ephemeral wildflowers.

Cold, chill to the bone

Steady drizzle and down-pours

Early springs revenge.

Art Prescription:  So we have had record high temperatures, and now we are having record low temperatures.

As the white moon grows

Blooming vines twirl and reach up

Purple-blue Vinca.

Art Prescription:  Such a happy perineal.

Sunday morning drive

Early and roads are quiet

Just me and the crows.

Art Prescription:  Alone time is the quintessential salve for busy life.

Spring Red-Buds border

The highway like landing lights

Place to land winter.

Art Prescription:  So pretty.

Scent of evening

Dinner cooking, clothes drying

Spring inflorescence.

Art Prescription:  There is an Asian family in my neighborhood who starves me on my evening walk. There is always something wonderful wafting from their house.

It’s before you knew

Free from guilt or blame, simple

Just a shear pleasure.

Art Prescription:  Spring moves forth with such determination…
