Through many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
’Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.
Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess, within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.
I know it’s only January and April is still 3 months away but I’m already anxious for the Skagit Valley bulb fields to “spring forth”. I try to get up there at least once every year. I’ve already got a portfolio full of photos of daffodils and tulips but acres and acres of blooms are hard to resist. I usually bring some cut flowers home for my wife but before I gave her these, I ran them through my studio for awhile.
I sometimes prowl thrift shop aisles looking for studio props. Fortunately, I had just picked up this vase a couple of weeks before.
