Happy Cinco de Mayo and First Sightings of the Year 5/5/14

Flashback Saturday, May 5, 2014 – The full moon has been moving in the horizon towards the south and now has to rise above trees as well as the Wasatch Mountains for me to get a picture. This is my pick photo of the day and features the full moon of Willow rising above my across the street neighbors’ trees. I love how you can see the trees in silhouette along with the mysterious blue color in part of the moon’s aura. Happy Cinco de Mayo 🙂

May 5, 2012 sigFlashback Sunday, May 5, 2014 – This is my pick photo for the day and it stars a most likely controversial plant (though I don’t know what kind it is). I know these plants are considered a “weed” though to me it is hard to think of any plant as a “weed”. I really love the delicate looks and how the light shines giving this an ethereal look.

May 5, 2013 sigMonday, May 5, 2014 – First sightings of sphinx moth (aka hummingbird moth), dragonfly and hummingbird today!  Not the best photos, but still awesome to document.

It is our misfortune that for most of us that clear-eyed vision, that true instinct for what is beautiful and awe-inspiring, is dimmed and even lost before we reach adulthood. If I had influence with the good fairy who is supposed to preside over the christening of all children, I should ask that her gift to each child in the world be a sense of wonder so indestructible that it would last throughout life, as an unfailing antidote against the boredom and disenchantment of later year…the alienation from the sources of our strength.”
