Oh my gosh Sylvia, the azaleas are spectacular. How fab to sit out in the spring sunshine surrounded by such beauty. Enjoy and think of me here in the rain now, not that I'm complaining (yet!!).

Sorry, I'm so late in returning your visit with me this weekend. It's been another busy time for me and hardly allowing me to be online.

Your flower photos are absolutely stunning as is your 'fire in the sky' image. Well done.

We are in more or less the same neck of the woods (Vancouver, BC) so I recognize many of the wonderful blooms. Loved your pictures and thoughts. We are so lucky!

Island Rambles Blog said...

Just love the flowers and always find the quotes uplifting somehow and feel happy here..I see you are in Seattle so you are just over the water from me.

Ebie said...

The combination of different colors and blooms make me want to be outdoors, and will feast my eyes with them, and thank goodness for the sun!

You have a lovely place!

And as for the header, your friend has done it again, what a great sense of humour she has.

Hi there - that’s a lot of colour for one post!

I'm planning to find some more "Australian Australians" this weekend. It gets dark early enough for a bit of evening marsupial hunting (with a camera!).

Cheers - Stewart M - Australia

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.
