Weekend Reflections

Weekend Reflections is hosted by James each week beginning Friday at 11 AM Eastern Standard Time. It's another wonderful way of opening your eyes to new and different kinds of beauty. Click on the web address under the blog title and sign up to play with us! 
We've had such a beautiful week with lots of sun -- until yesterday! But I did get a  shot at the harbor.  I had lunch last week at a really delightful English tea room and the second shot was taken from my table at the reflection on the sheer curtains of the very interesting siding on the building next door. Later I visited an incredible nursery where they had a huge display of fountains. It's not the best reflection shot, but I loved the coins on the bottom.  Hope you all have a wonderful and happy weekend! Enjoy!

I like the subtlety of that 2nd image with the sheers. Gorgeous. I think I might have missed those-especially if there was food to eat.
Have a great weekend Sylvia. I like the header-so cheerful.

I love that first shot! The glory of the sunset, and its reflection, with the silhouette of the tree to anchor you to the land!!!

There are a lot of fountains in that room, I imagine the sound is very relaxing.

Great reflections, Sylvia. As you've turned sunny, we've finally started getting some afternoon storms with rain. Hopefully this weather pattern will continue for both of us. Have a great weekend!

Great shots but those reflected shingles are so dynamic and mesmerising.

Have a wonderful weekend!

stardust said...

As a mid-summer version, I like the new header in which everyone is in motion pleasantly on the large stage of the sky and the sea when air becomes cooler toward the dusk.

The place looks perfect to have a break in the second photo.

Have a happy weekend, Sylvia.

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
