More Colorful Beauty!!

No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn. ~Hal Borland

An optimist is the human personification of spring.
Susan J. Bissonette

Sitting quietly, doing nothing,
Spring comes, and the grass grows by itself.
Lao Tzu

Every spring is the only spring - a perpetual astonishment.
Ellis Peterson

Well .... if it comes to those beautiful rhodies and azaleas, Spring skips its turn here in SW Florida. I do miss them. But .... (there are other flowers and other reasons to be here ;>)

WOW! The top shot is amazing!

Fotolosopher said...

That does it, I'm moving to Portland
If only to see the flowers
If I stay here in Florida
All I see are blooming idiots!

These are all beautiful. The arrival of flowering spring trees is one of the few things I miss about not being up north at this time of year.

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.
