The Golden Columbine is native to moist canyon seeps in the Chihuahuan and Sonoran deserts of southwestern
North America.
The word columbine comes from columbinus, in Latin “dove,” referring to the flower’s resemblance
to a cluster of 5 doves. The spurs represent the birds’ heads and shoulders; the spreading sepals,
the wings; the blade of the petal, each bird’s body. The genus name, from the Latin aquila (“eagle”),
alludes to the petals, which resemble eagle talons. — Source: wildflower.org

“We seldom realize, for example that our most private thoughts and emotions are not actually our own.
For we think in terms of languages and images which we did not invent, but which were given to us by our society.”

— Alan Watts

At the edge of a stream

Stretching through mountain woods

Watching clouds create dark shadows

That sink down the stream where

Golden columbines shine

Though the dark shadows.

Nothing Gold Can Stay

Nature’s first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf’s a flower;

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down today.

Nothing gold can stay.

— Robert Frost

Be empty.
Be still.
Watch everything
come and go.

This is the way
of Nature.

Golden Columbine — Two Photo-Artistry Images   1 comment

These images were taken a couple of weeks ago,
but with recent temperatures down around freezing,
mountain wildflowers are in their last stage of life.
Still plenty of wildflowers at the basin level.

Nature is a sphere
Revealing cosmic patterns
In all the clutter.

Sounds of moans and sighs.

In sea of deep green.

Why should we think upon things that are lovely? Because thinking determines life. It is a common habit to blame life upon the environment. Environment modifies life but does not govern life. The soul is stronger than its surroundings.

“I’m addicted to the entire planet.
I don’t want to leave it.
I want to get down into it.
I want to say hello.
On the beach, I could have stopped all day long
and looked at those damned shells,
looked for all the messages
that come not in bottles but in shells…”
