    Time For A New Collection

    Many of us have a bowl full of stones, fossils and shells.  A collection of seedcases and leaves, or a vase displaying colorful feathers.  Somewhere along the way, during the many house moves, mine were discarded.  It must have been a while ago, as there is no memory of the...

    Life Is A Bowl Of Nature.

    some of the unusual looking, big seed pods, when roses turn to rosehips, the tops of acorns that look like little hats, small, smooth pieces of driftwood, tiny beach pebbles, these are the little treasures that i sometimes like to display in very old bowls.

    I Love To Roam In The Mountains With Friends

    Nature's Blessings

    It started in childhood with crisp autumn walks out in the woods with my father and his Brittney Spaniels and English Setter puppies.  We would simply go out to train the dog and along the way my dad would point out the different trees.  He would say, "what kind of...
