Ver-dant - adj., lit. Green; covered with growing plants or grass; fresh, flourishing.

I love that word. I love that reality. I love our currently verdant canyon.


Eldest Dude: "Hey, Mom. Here's some nice GRASS for you to take a picture of." [yes, I confess, ALL the Kellers have a well-developed sense of sarcasm.]

Oh. A coyote.

I love that word, too. It just flows off the tongue.

And you had some rather verdant pictures last week, too.

Love the coyote and that gorgeous orange flower, and you and Middle Dude.

how do you stay away long enough to do other things?

I am seriously jealous. Green. Verdant. I can't REMEMBER what that was like. I think "warm" also goes with the green word, doesn't it? Not 30 degrees?

jeal-ous: feelings of envy

I love the gorgeous flower. Beautiful!

Not only do I always look forward to seeing your new photos everyday but I love seeing you with your family. None of your photos look posed or fake. You can truly see the love of your family in all of your photos. I just wanted you to know how beautifully it comes across in your photos. Truly beautiful.

What a loveley word. I just posted not long ago about how the green of summertime (specifically the green of Arkansas!) is one thing that soothes my soul! Beautiful pics!
