A trip to the nursery

What is more precious than looking over plants and flowers.

The possibilities are imense and plans are being made.

The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing ... not healing, not curing ... that is a friend who cares.

- Henri J.M. Nouwen, from his book Out of Solitude

Biking on a Saturday afternoon

While the rain comes down on the East Coast, I enjoy a sunny day in the valley.

This is the time to be out, see the wildflowers grow and gasp and this tree in amazement.

I want one! Becky Saratoga and I cruised the neighborhood looking for lemons and pretty things to photograph.  Happy Spring!
