A celebrated time of the year in the Washington DC area. Thousands throng to the Tidal Basin to see, smell and embrace the onset of Spring. Walking under a canopy of pink blossoms conjures up childhood dreams of enchanted forests where bunny rabbits, squirrels and blue jays frolic about as one happy family.

Most flowers had their day of supreme rein during the peak of the season. Now it is time for the Autumn showcase of foliage. However, if you are counting the days until the peak foliage of Autumn, you just might miss your gift of the day. Gifts are the special moments that surprise us with something new and unique. Acknowledge the gifts of the universe and discover “your cup over floweth”. The beautiful formation of lily pads in a simple pond at the Atlanta, GA Botanical Garden captivated me. I was obliged to say “Thank you“.

Yesterday evening the weather cooled with a threatening storm. As I sat on my front porch, I realized how faithfully the Blackeyed Susan flowers blossom every year. Weather has never been a deterrent. Neither too much rain or drought has ever stopped them from blooming. The yellow petals beckon every visitor to come closer.
As a pending storm rushed in the wind, I captured the movement of the flowers. Interesting patterns and shapes took affect and I was pleasantly surprised with the results. The painterly, abstract effect is what I like most. See Gallery
