Our World!!

Time for "Our World" again! This is a wonderful way to find the beauty, the fun, the good and even the bad things about Our World and to share them! Hope you will join us! Click on the link  to go to the Our World site and sign up!!
 Our weather has been gorgeous for the past week and I'm in heaven! But I haven't had any way to get around to a lot of places I would like to show you, SO --- we'll look back a bit! A view of Seattle from a plane ride, veggies from my favorite market, fields of lavender and a pair of resident llamas and a beautiful boat off the coast of Whidbey Island. Hope you enjoy! Have a wonderful week!

A great look back, Sylvia - hopefully you'll get more great weather and be able to get out and enjoy it. Our weather has been perfect this weekend, cool, cloudy, and rainy. I couldn't ask for better!

Love them all sylvia, but the lavendar is my favourite.

cieldequimper said...

I love your world Sylvia. It's beautiful.


And I've just realised that Roma tomatoes have changed name here. They used to be called "romaine". Now they are "long" tomatoes. Ridiculous if you ask me. As if people couldn't remember names...

Cezar and Léia said...

Bonjour dear Sylvia, I'm enchanted by your adorable header picture!
Amazing set of images!

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.
