That's My World!

As many of you know, Klaus died on Thursday. We are all in a bit of shock. He was a wonderful and very talented man and he will be missed. Thank you for your kind words and thoughts.

Klaus Peter, 1960-2011  

That's My World is hosted each week by Klaus and the My World team, Klaus, Sandy, Wren, Fishing Guy and me. Join us and share your world with others from all over Our World! Just click on the post title, read the rules, sign up and play with us! So! How is your world this week? Have you taken time to see the beauty there? What is it about your world that makes you smile or laugh or feel grateful for?

It's been a busy week and I haven't gotten out much with the camera, but I have been cleaning out and moving  files. In doing so I ran across some lovely views of my world and I thought I'd share those with you today. I love all of our spring flowers, the mountains and my favorite Bird Sanctuary!! Hope you enjoy!

Oh, Sylvia, I love blossom trees....they're my favorite....my idea of perfection is a blossom and a magnolia standing side by side :)

Another great Header and another group of nice pics Sylvia. Your World is a nice one it looks like.

We are down to just "regular hot" weather. It feels great. I'd need a jacket if I was up where you are.

You came across some lovely spring photos. I'm already thinking of spring. I've been digging daffodil bulbs and ordering tulips.

Your mosaic certainly does cheer me up and I hope it worked for you as well, I am so sorry about your blog-friend. I had never visited his blog, but of course I saw him as host of both wonderful memes. It is a loss to all who knew him in real and virtual life.

Al said...

They're all lovely, Sylvia, but the upper-right is my favorite with the water, the snow-capped mountains, and the low clouds. Have a great week!

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.
