Our archives remind us that the sun will shine again.
A little rain over night here, at last. We need a lot more but this should keep the hillsides green a while longer.

Reader Wil said...

Here we have to wait till April and May to see such blossoms in our gardens! Beautiful, Sylvia and the flowers go well with the quotes. Have a great and peaceful week.

Carver said...

What a splash of beautiful flowers, trees, sky, water and boats. All of these shots make me feel like singing - Oh what a beautiful morning . . .

Great to see spring!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

oh my gosh - that 2nd photo is perfection!

Ebie said...

I would really love the rain to come in our area so we would have those full blooms! The shot is just so perfect for the spring season! I wish they would last longer though.

I see by your header that you have reached new heights of fame, Sylvia! When next you speak to the President, please give him my regards and tell him I'd vote for you as his running mate any day. :)

Jack said...

Love that pink blooming tree, Sylvia. In whatever season!

NixBlog said...

Lovely photos, Sylvia. I am glad you have thoughts of Spring, hopefully it will not tarry too much in coming to your part of the world.
Happy Valentine's Day!

SIgh... I feel like Atlas has shrugged and the world has fallen from my shoulders. The photos, and the words you have chosen to accompany them are sweet refreshment indeed!

Al said...

Beautiful photos, Sylvia - I remember that when we visited in February one year it was sunny and the trees were blooming, but I guess not this year. We've had a mostly cloudy week too.

George said...

Files are wonderful to have around, especially when they contain beautiful images like these. I hope the coming week brings bright sunshine and blue skies.

magiceye said...

gorgeous captures all!!

Genie said...

I like all of your shots, but the second and forth ones have to be my favorites. I really like the new banner...I would certainly vote for the 2 of you. Bet you all could run the country quite well. Hope you have a nice week without lots of the usual rain.genie

SandyCarlson said...

The colors and the vibrancy of these shots is just uplifting as all get out, Sylvia. You make me want to rush headlong into spring.

Sylvia, small entry, the first two photos are spectacular, the tree in bloom, and that space on the waterfront under a tree to meditate or relax, are beautiful.

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.
