Tea Leaf Reader Lady

Late last month, Linda, Sue and I, friends and neighbors for over forty years, visited Perennial Pleasures Tea Room and Gardens, East Hardwick, Vermont...but we regret not having had a conversation with the Tea Leaf Reader Lady... Maybe next time.

I remember her beautiful, peaceful karma while sitting under the full bloom Crab Apple tree. She never moved except to give Linda a tea pouring lesson! She must have been privy to our girl-chatter. Probably dying to read our leaves!  

She was dressed in a bright yellow chemise with a bright blue aloha skirt. 
Her beads, multicolored. 
Her long graying hair tumbled over her shoulders. 

Elementary Blue and Yellow = Green

After a long winter, hope springs eternal in shades of blue and yellow.

A Yearling

Jul. 26, 2015    The morning fog was just beginning to rise when a young buck appeared on our lawn.  When my camera lens brought him into focus, I could see the velvet on his antlers- better known as  "spike horns."   There are two round buttons at the top of his spikes and his eyes are soft and wondering.  He is foraging for the small sour apples that have fallen from the tree.   LRL
