Trials.

Some things are more beautiful simply because they are over.

We survived them.

And therein lies the beauty,

and the relief.

– Trials.

Stepping Stones.

He was not afraid of the walls around her heart.

Her defences were not to be conquered;

but gently dismantled.

One rock at a time.

Until the light shone into her darkest places,

and she could find her way out.

– Stepping Stones.

Photographic feature: Magnolia blossom.

Spring is whispering her imminent arrival in Scotland, and Magnolia trees are donning their bridal finery.

The image was taken in the walled garden at Balloch Castle.
