Our temperatures have dropped over ten degrees in one day!! But we're still enjoying some sun in between rain storms and lots of wind. Ah, but there are still lots of beautiful flowers in the roof gardens and I'm going to enjoy all that wonderful color for as long as I can -- and I'm sharing some of that wonderful color with you today, along with the things that are always here regardless of the season -- beautiful sunsets and skies and a lovely harbor.


Hope all of you have a wonderful week ahead with lots of love and laughter -- you know, those important things!!

Judge each day not by the harvest you reap but by the seeds you plant.
Robert Louis Stevenson

Your present circumstances don't determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start.

There are always flowers for those who want to see them. Henri Matisse

 
Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine. Anthony J. D'Angelo

In a gentle way, you can shake the world.

You and I are likely enjoying similar blustery weather, Sylvia. I always take note of the quotes you include in your posts. I happen to admire Marianne Williamson and was delighted to see a line from her thinking in your previous post. Forgiveness is one of mankind’s toughest challenges but if implemented globally would probably heal all the ills of the world. :)

Great pictures, I like the Henri Matisse quote the best I think.

These are all such beautiful shots. Our temperatures are weird. We've dropped as much as 30 degrees in a day and then back up and down.

I sat out in Heather's garden yesterday and read, the weather was so perfect. Your rooftop garden looks like a great place to do the same thing.

Have a great day Sylvia!!

Ha,Ha, I gave my granddaughter some money for her trip to the states and hope when she exchanges it, there will be enough left over to bring me one of those very special $100 bills!

Your flower parade is extra special, what a lot of green fingers you have! Your world is so very full of beauty. I wish I could come over to share some real laughter.

I well remember a marvellous trip across Canada, from Montreal to the West coast where the temperature dropped by 10 degrees in every town we spent the night we had just spent the night in.
That year, I had my 40th birthday in the Rockies, what a treat!

What a riot of colours your world is! That is the best part of autumn, in my opinion.

The mums are a great reminder that FALL has arrived. It is usually cool and misty now in the mornings.

Thanks again for sharing these wonderful words of wisdom.

I'm glad you still have some beautiful flowers to share with us. I love that sunset photo.

Hope all is well.

I am sure going to miss all of the colours of summer. It's been raining, but no really cold weather yet. Maybe things will last a bit longer. - Margy

Wonderful flowers. Is the roof garden on the building where you live?

Silvia,
Your photos and words always bring me smile and inspiration! Especially I love the photo of the ocean whose color is indigo, Japan blue! Just beautiful.
“There are always flowers for those who want to see them.” is very true.
Have a wonderful week!
Best wishes,

What Can I Say?

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.
