When I was very young, I spent many hours learning from the trees and plants in the nature preserve that was across the street from my house.

Later, a very special book greatly influenced my understanding of, and attraction to ,the Botanical world."The Secret Life of Plants" by Christopher Bird and Peter Tomkins (1973) revealed a whole new understanding for me. This was a fascinating account of the physical, emotional and spiritual relations between plants and humankind. My love affair with the botanical world has been a life long journey.

I continue to learn what I can and receive the beauty of the plants Many of these images are from my own garden in Northern New Mexico.

These photographs are part of an exhibit called "Green Universe" the Images that make large framed pieces are also made into greeting cards. I hope you enjoy them and be inspired to write more often to friends and Loved Ones.
