The Peony

Folklore enlaces the flower which further links Peony to the moon. 
It is believed that this flower of sheer romance was created by the 
Goddess of moon to reflect the lustrous shimmer of the moon's beam
 at night. Reflect your deep desire into her eyes as you give her a 
bunch of peony to say softly -- " You are mine " 
 ~ Author Unknown

The Peony
Early morning sun caressed their tight green buds
Gently coaxed to open by coal-black ants, exposing
the delicate tissue of lace-like petals
Their ethereal showy blooms, weigh down the stems,
waving their perfumed fragrance in the air
While gathering sprays, I drink in the depth of colour
And the honey sweet bouquet of my
Favourite English Peony

 In her world she remains cocooning
Through her trembling thorn of despair
She surrenders spinning misty tears
While every star seemed a solitaire
I have used cocooning many times to see me through the dark times...Cocooning is self-nurturing. Cocooning is about staying home, creating a safe place around you, but also a need to be "safe" in our own little nest. Although it can sometimes be helpful to make yourself social, at other times it's better to "cocoon."
Cocooning is self-nurturing, like when we wrap ourselves in a blanket by the fire, drink something warm and watch a movie. It might be sitting outside under a tree reading or  enjoying a hot bath with soothing music in the background.
I found that well-meaning loved ones offer advice which they cannot defend when they sometimes encourage or even demand that you join them at a social function, believing that this will help you feel better. Don't ever be pressured into going if it's not right for you, since pushing yourself may backfire and make you feel even more depressed. always ask yourself, "Will I feel better if I could get dressed and go out?" If your answer is no because it feels too overwhelming or stressful, you should stay home and cocoon. Listen to your intuition, always and take care of you

Heaven Scent Fay

In the twilight of the moonlight
In the sea of tranquility
Nestled there amongst the clouds
Celestial sea of ethereal clouds
Light of sky the bay of rainbows
Sky of delicate blue divine
Sky so full of gossamer wings
Veiled beneath an ocean of stars
Soared the Angels heaven scent
Soared their flight in Sea of nectar

June 24, 2012 is
International Fairy Day
Fairy Day is a day for fairies, magic, and wishes to come true. For one day, put aside the cynicism of the modern world and embrace the possibilities of the unknown, and believe in fairies…

Today is a day for fairy believers young and old to celebrate the stories, magic, and history of the Fair Folk. For centuries, fairies have been an important part of Celtic culture. In all of the ancient legends, these mythological creatures are described as intelligent, mischievous, and magical. They have the ability to fly and cast spells, and they live in “Tír na nÓg,” the land of eternal youth. Mortals don’t often see fairies because of the division between the two worlds, but sightings can occur at twilight or during Beltane, Mid-Summer’s Eve, or All Hallow’s Eve.
In his 1904 play Peter Pan, J.M. Barrie wrote that when the first baby laughed, the laugh broke into a thousand pieces, and that was the beginning of fairies. International Fairy Day is the perfect opportunity to relive your childhood fantasies and celebrate the joy and magic of the fairy world.
Read a classic fairy tale, build a fairy house, or take a stroll through the woods. You never know when you might stumble across something magical!

Surprise Capture on a Summer Day

How doth the little busy bee 
Improve each shining hour,
And gather honey all the day 
from every opening flower
- Isaac Watts

On this beautiful sunny summer day, I snapped some pictures of my white  Feather Delphiniums.  While editing , I noticed an unexpected visitor was also in the shot.   I couldn’t of captured this little guy if I tried.  I am grateful for the timing of this cute little Bee.

Robin Red Breast

I have having fun with my new Cannon camera.
Robin sitting in our Gingko Tree
watching her baby.

 Mother Robin

Baby flew off our porch to our driveway, 
when I opened our screen door this morning,
while Momma Robin screamed at me...
