This Is Ivy. The Spirit Of The Vines.
I know, I know...You think maybe I have been

But Really. She Was There! And I Caught Her On Camera!

CAN YOU SEE HER TOO??

    Pom, I knew your eagle eyes would be able to find a sweet and beautiful nymph emerging from that tree.
And now, with a little help from your friendly fractalius filter, your nimble fingers have given everyone a chance to admire Ivy in all her natural glory!
Wonderful DD work, and thanks so much for the dedication. You've made my night and day!
SOUPYSAYSHI! ;-DD

Hi Mare! HeeHee...I knew Ivy was in there. We just had to coax her out like that last image spoke about! :D Thanks for all the kind and fun things you said. You always make my day and night too as I know you do with so many BPers by being our friend!! :D

Hi Brett! Good to see you and glad I found you on the vine there! Thank you very much!

Laura, it appears that you stood too close to tree-man Douglas Perry. ;-)

The clouds, melting walls, flower buds, trees; I never know where you will turn up next.

I'll have to keep my eye out for you the next time I am out shooting.

Wow! You guys! Thanks so much! :D I'm so flattered!!!

I am very housebound in the winter so I MUST create when I get these bursts of pent up energy. I think I'd better get the wood in the fireplace burning soon to warm up my hands as well.

I'm glad that you all like this one. :D

YAH! Where *IS* Mr. Tree? Good point. I think I might take a walk in the woods again and see if I can find him.

HUGS!
SSSLaura, Lala, Swanee, Miss Rose. etc..!

HeeHee to Irene. Yes. One just never where you might see me again! Keep your eye pealed out there and stay tuned!

Indeed, trees have the power to sooth the spirit as well as their other friends in the forest such the Ivy. A trip there for a sit and a listen will restore and amaze those who will hear. The forest will speak to you of peace and calm.
Great catch Miss Rose. It is not easy to catch the Ivy.

This is REALLY REALLY GOOD, SSSLala.
I love it so much!!
I'm sure if we look closer we'd see a lot of tree spirits around.

Well, *there* they are. Two more of my most favorite peeps in the world. Mr. Tree and Ms. Wolf!

I am forever grateful for your presence and added words of wisdom and love here on this magical image that captured a spirit in the forest just for us!

I think IVY loves being part of that tree and I know that I love being a part of your lives.

We both thank you today!

-Miss Rose, SSSLala :D
