dried daffodils

have you ever thought about drying daffodils?
hanging upside down or just leaving them flat on the 
table only for few days, seems like they are 
reborn as new beauty.  
aren't these pretty.

mid march

yesterday, i had terrible evaluation at work and
walk back home with sunken heart...but
the smiley moon gave uplifting energy
"tomorrow will be a better day"
then, this is my morning garden today
lots of fresh green currently
out to the mountain 
finding some signs of spring

hometown doughnuts

this old fashioned doughnuts recipe was from my mother.  she and all my aunts
often made this when i was growing up in a small island.  this is like my
hometown recipe and still like it a lot.  super easy, fun to make, and
taste good even after days......
i am going to deliver basketfull of this to my nephew this evening. 
original recipe contain 3eggs but adding one more egg
made big difference.  softer and taste better. 
here is my revised new recipe if you like to try.
flour 300g
sugar 150g
baking powder  1.5tsp
4 eggs

in a pink mood these days                 
how about you?

beautiful new life


tree branch i brought in last december
never thought of this would survive and have new life
but with slight hope and wish of hope
i kept them in a glass jar
changed water every once in a while
began deep breathing
showing new buds
this nature action always reminds me
to never give up
