"This is the violet hour, the hour of hush and wonder, when the affectations glow and valor is reborn, when the shadows deepen along the edge of the forest and we believe that, if we watch carefully, at any moment we may see the unicorn."

May Days..

Beautiful Spring Days of May.....  babies being born... trees, plants a'bloom...  and I know that those of you in the Northeast and Midwest are FINALLY feeling it too.

Most of us have stopped blogging on a regular basis....for one reason or another....yet, I believe our friendship endures.... LIFE is so precious - so short....  we should enjoy the beauty our World offers us... for me, no *real family* - but all of YOU....I relish all your posts...and visits to my blog.

I have 10 more days until I plunge back into the world of SF Opera...  so my time will not be as free as it is...I am enjoying Spring....and waiting expectantly for *my* Swans to become parents again! 

Here's one of my favourite photos I took last year of Blanche and her six Cygnets...



Springtime in San Francisco...



May Crescent Moon


A neighbour's Roses....and they have the most delicious fragrance!






I shot this video yesterday...not too far from my home, this Mama Duck had 10 (yes, TEN) Ducklings!  I brought them Cheerios (better for them than bread) and they devoured it!  Yes, that's me singing to them....

Happy Mother's Day to all who are Mums - be it for two or four footed *kids*!

Love,

♥ Robin ♥

  1. Cute video. Love those little fur balls. Been spending lots of time outside with My Girls. Makes the garden more special. Enjoy your Spring and time out with the Critters before going back to work.

    1. Deb.... yes, that's my little Voki image that I update monthly - A dear friend, who dies last year, taught me how to do it....and I keep on, partially to honour her!

      If my photos sooth you - that's wonderful! Your gorgeous art and words soothe me too! I am thrilled we have met!!!

      Love,
