Sundry Wonders is a weekly column, featuring a photo gallery and meditation, based on walks I've taken with Ollie over the last week. Photos taken with a Fujifilm X-T4 (very much a beginner) or my Pixel 5 phone (if we walked in the middle of the day, or I was in a bit of a rush). I’d love to hear about and see what you experienced this week. Let me know in the comments!

A cold spring

Temperatures plummeted last week into deep winter territory, making me fear for the flowers and keeping Ollie and me indoors, shivery under blankets. A glorious magnolia’s blossoms blackened; the tree lives, but we will miss its flowers this year.

A third Covid spring. We have missed so much beauty. We survive, but we have lost so much.

This week has me turning toward life, rejoining humans after so much time away. Flowers still bloom, life goes on, and we hope that the cold stays at bay.

Catch all the Sundry Wonders posts, and let me know what you experienced on your walks in the comments!
