Pink Peony Flowers

.........Do you also hurry, half-dressed and barefoot, into the garden,
and softly, and exclaiming of their dearness, fill your arms with the white and pink flowers, with their honeyed heaviness, their lush trembling, their eagerness to be wild and perfect for a moment, before they are nothing, forever........ ~ Mary Oliver

Seagulls and Pelicans

A bright sunny day at the beach here in northern California, 
just the sun, the wind and the sound of seabirds.

Black and White Poppies

The texture of these flowers were just too wonderful to get distracted by color. 
The petals remind me of wrinkled tissue paper.

Pretty Pastel San Francisco

A few lovely places in San Francisco. 
Around just about every corner there is beauty to be found in this city ;)
