The beauty of spring is making a timid  approach and I will get some photos of a few of those near my complex, these are from last year and just looking at the photos can take my breath away -- I hope they will do the same for you! Have a wonderful week!!
Still having the same problems with WordPress -- unable to leave comments! I do apologize!


Arranging a bowl of flowers in the morning can give a sense of quiet in a crowded day - like writing a poem or saying a prayer.
Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Art is the unceasing effort to compete with the beauty of flowers - and never succeeding.

Wow--what gorgeous pictures and quotes, Sylvia.. I love those blue Hydrangeas....

George doesn't know what is wrong with his comment form on his blog. He gets comments and nobody else has complained... I even went on that blog today and left a comment. SO--He says that he is sorry!!!! Are you having trouble with other Wordpress blogs--or just his?

Hugs,
Betsy

I love the line about “arranging a bowl of flowers” being peaceful and much like a prayer. Now if only we could find some current blooms in a very slow start to spring in our world!

Randi said...

Beautiful photos of the hydrangea. They like the heat in my orangerie, but they are still sleeping. I love these plants!

Gaelyn said...

Spring in the Seattle area can indeed be gorgeous, enough to make up for the grey winter. Beautiful photos, Sylvia, and I can't wait to see more from this year.

I truly believe that Sylvia, I love to have fresh flowers around the house, when I see them it really does give you such a lovely feeling. I don't usually buy them in the summer because it's just too hot and they only last a day or so, but it's definitely cooling a little now so...flower market here I come!! Have a wonderful day Sylvia, I hope things are alright in your world.

What stunning photos! After a few warm days, we're back to snow, ice and minus temps.

I'm on WP and can leave comments, although I gather it's hard for some people to leave comments on my blog. Hope they sort it out very soon!

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.
