this beautiful natural world

Happy EARTH DAY-what will you be doing today?

One kind gesture towards this beautiful natural world can make a difference.

I will be throwing some milkweed seeds. 


  1. Bonsoir,

    Quelle belle énergie que dégage cette oeuvre extraordinaire !
    Gros bisous

  2. Beautiful painting and the monarch butterfly touches me deeply. Last January we were in Pismo Beach, CA and walked through a grove of trees that are the wintering place for monarchs. I was speechless! Happy Earth Day. From your blog, it seems as if you celebrate Earth Day every day.

  3. I think you may not have intended, but I do see a lot of happy spring birds in this one :)

  4. Thanks Rhonda-yes it is interesting what comes out when we are working intuitively-thanks for stopping by! I've been enjoying your birds as well!

    Katherine i think that is one of the most meaningful compliments i have ever had ie 'it seems as if you celebrate Earth Day every day.!!!!' thank you
