. . . Veins of violet hue;
Earth wants no beauty that may scorn
    A likening to frail flowers;
Yea, to the stars, if they were born
    For seasons and for hours.

William Wordsworth (1770-1850)

Oxalis Triangularis in the morning.

Azaleas after the rain.

Irises at attention.

First flowers in the garden.

Last of the Easter centerpieces.

Sixth day of the Octave of Easter.

What is a "Study in . . ."? 
A visual record defined by a single element, such as color, texture, or type. An exercise left over from design school, it's a habit I've been trying to teach my children, to encourage them to pay attention to their present and not worry about their past or future (unlike their worry-wart mother who's better at lecturing than applying.) As of today, Thursdays are my designated "Study in. . . ." days. I hope you enjoy them.
