Esprit to Spare!


The scent of the earth
reawakens 



the strangest things
growing in 


the same
soil together


Look at the rose vines
How peacefully it grows
With poison ivy.

Happy May Day!

  1. A very happy May day to you as well. I wish you joy, happiness and warmth in this month which happens to be the month when many luminaries were born :)

    Joy always,
    Susan

  2. Happy May Day, Joanny - a bunch of lily of the valley offered through cyberspace. Love the pictures of the curled fern, something prehistoric about it - the fossil shape, I suppose.

  3. Oh wow . . . of course . . . it's May Day. A time for flowers, and gardens, and warmer days. Nice images, Joanny, and "esprit to spare" on Sunday 160. Nicely done.

    I've always thought pansies have faces, and they talk to us each Spring.
    Since I was a child, they've always made me laugh.

    Have a great May Day, full of flowers and laughs.

  4. Nous sommes au printemps. La terre se régénère. Tout ce qu'on croyait mort n'était, en fait, qu'endormi. La vie revient et nous guide, nous aussi, vers davantage de dynamisme, d'esprit de découverte, de renouveau. L'avenir, plus que jamais, semble devant nous.
    Alors, joyeux Mai, pour toi, Joanny!

  10. Thorns and toxins, if you ask me, they are both quite intent on self protection.

  23. Very Poignant, the rose and poison Ivy.
    I love your way with life. Wish I could not get so upset with things and just accept life.
