Five-Leaf Trillium



I’m looking illium

a five-leaf trillium

that I’ve overlooked before

one leaf is sunshine,

the other is rain,

third are the flowers that bloom in the spring,

fourth is a poem that’s catchy with bad rhymes

fifth is something else, and if you’ve read this far,

you can make it up yourself,

for I’m looking illium

a five-leaf trillium

that I’ve overlooked beeeeee-fore!

Hymie, part 2

For Akiva’s 2nd birthday, I made a doll.



Just for him.



The doll was to be named Hymie,

after a doll that another little boy loved with all his heart, so, so long ago.



I decided on matted brushable mohair for his wig,



dark blue eyes,



and floppy so-soft reversible linen trousers with button closures for his attire.



Akiva prefers the green pants with cars on the pocket over the blue pants with checks.



Akiva likes his Hymie. Maybe someday he will love him.



Akiva likes a lot of things.



How I love that little boy!




For part one of this tale, please read the post titled “Hymie.”

May Day Celebration at Terri’s Morning Garden

To the Shelburne Museum Carousel, as usual.

Ride a cock horse





 to Shelburne Museum





To buy my two children a galloping horse





It trots behind and it ambles before





And my children shall ride





Till they can ride no more.

Little Black Dress

I lost a leg off an old pair of yoga pants. Iris finds it a perfect fit.

A Boy & his Car

preset 1973

I made this Adobe Lightroom preset. I call it, “1973.” That’s the year of my birth. I liked the 70s.

At least, I liked the early 70s, before I had to go to kindergarten at the tender age of 4. After that, it was all downhill.

To immortalize those glorious early years, I attempt to make it seem as if my children are alive & well in the 1970s.

It helps a lot that we have mostly old toys. And those toys of ours that are not oldβ€” those ones are antiques.
