Spring In Macro With Morrison

And a sprinkle of Romantic Musings..
(this was one of my favorites off this album- Hymns to the Silence)

Ay, you shall be together even in the silent memory of God
But let there be spaces in your togetherness,
And let the winds of the heavens dance between you

Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone,
Even as the strings of a lute are alone
though they quiver with the same music
Give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping.
For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.
And stand together yet not too near together:
For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow
Kahlil Gibran~

(Jackson Chameleon)
I'm still working on my garden (so a little behind)..
will stop by to visit you shortly- thanks~

I missed you, I love your pictures. But who put that cute little hat on the chameleon?

Though the fruit fly looks handsome, the Chameleon is sure more charming.

Wow, awesome macro shots and Van Morrison is one of my favorites. The Chameleon is really cool looking. I hope all is well and have a great weekend.

At site of YouTube, I heard his song , Van Morrison. I feel tenderness and heartiness from his voice. You know an amazing creatures, Jackson Chameleon. He has many curious characters. A shed shell still stays on his head.
