I like the table setting of bottle and glass - it is inviting. Am I to assume that outdoor furniture means that Spring is nigh? The plant is beautiful and I notice the shadow of a goblet - more stylish glassware for an excellent SSS!

Lovely shadows and fantastic Christmas Cactus!

Makes me want to sit in the sun, raise my glass and say "cheers!"

What lovely sunny shots and I really liked the last quote. The header is too delightful for words!

Love the cool blue-green glass ware. And Henry Ward Beecher is a distant relative and his famous founding church is down the street from our house.
Cheers,

Nice shadows Sylvia - we won't have any today as we're under a blizzard warning all day. Have a great weekend and give Sam a pat from me and Socks!

I was playing a song on the piano yesterday - "We live in the shadows" or something like that. You are the shadow master!

Just remember, the rain falls on the just and the unjust. But all it can do is get you wet. I think.

Gemma Wiseman said...

The glassware casts magical shadows! Almost like water art! And love the fall of those flowers!

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.
