The creative act lasts but a brief moment, a lightning instant of give-and-take, just long enough for you to level the camera and to trap the fleeting prey in your little box.

Remember when you first planted a seed as a child?

I do.


They behave best for kids.

Gestating quickly for impatient young fingers

Wanting to pull up some edible treasure.

I am still that impatient gardner you bet!

Poring over my list of "must have veggies".

Readying my garden plot and now just waiting.

For the sun to warm the earth........

and seeds to give birth.

I think the magic of seeds sprouting is just as exciting for least for me!

Wow, that brings back memories. My dad planted radishes. I have not had one in ages.

Oh, Spring!

I love the crisp colors and casual placement. How illusive is creativity! And how fragile. Turn your head for just a moment and it is gone, never to return in the same way again.
