Our World!!

Welcome to my world for the day! Looking back over the beautiful spring that we have had and that I want to remember, I decided to share some of the things I've seen every day! Ah, what a wonderful world it is!!!






Nature never goes out of style. ~Anonymous
You will find something more in woods than in books. Trees and stones will teach you that which you can never learn from masters. ~St. Bernard

If one way be better than another, that you may be sure is Nature’s way. ~Aristotle

Nature is full of genius, full of the divinity; so that not a snowflake escapes its fashioning hand. ~Henry David Thoreau,


I sing of brooks, of blossoms, birds and bowers,
Of April, May, of June, and July-flowers...
~Robert Herrick

And I sing of furry, hungry squirrels!!!

Love your photos. I especially like the first one and the white rose with the tears! So beautiful!

Mother Nature can be kind
Mother Nature can be bad.
Mother Nature can be blind
Don't make Mother Nature mad.

"Cause with all the pretty flowers
Comes the storms, and hurricanes!
If you live in Florida in the summer
You'd best go where it merely rains.

Still in all, I do love sunsets
They take the chill of night away.
And I need Mother Nature's blanket
Now that I am old and gray!

Oh, I DO wish nature which is "never goes out of fashion" stays around us. I feel not much of them left for us (especially enjoying friends posts, haha).
Your roses (with rail drops is wonderful)and I enjoyed others ae well and the quotes goes well with them♡♡♡

Sending you lots of Love and Hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

Your Spring was truly beautiful -- the City of Roses is a wonderful place to live!!! We are experiencing Spring here in Alaska now -- a little behind the rest of America (or "outside" as the people refer to it. One lady on the boat told me "we went outside for a vacation". She meant Seattle!)

Anyway, I just spent part of a rainy Saturday catching up ... we are having a rest day after hiking yesterday and it's raining, so perfect timeing for me to blog. Thank you for all your wonderful posts, the smiles and the beautiful pix and perfect quotes.

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.
