Guest blogger Marlene, (Mark’s MIL- Erika’s Mom) sent me these photographs of flowers in her garden at the end of June.
I searched for them to put on her birthday post yesterday (What We Share) but couldn’t find them.
Then I remembered – she sent them via iPhone, not email. Spent a bit “loading earlier messages” but was able to find and save them.
Here is her garden and flowers around her house at the end of June. Near Roanoke Virgina.
“All the flowers around my house that are yellow or have yellow in them.”
Now I thought that was perfect for Cee’s Photography Challenge for YELLOW.
Hope I got the labels all right! Glad you had a nice birthday. xoxoxo
An enjoyment of baked goods. I didn’t eat any of these but I am sure we would have had fun together if we did.
Cake flowers from NYC shot last Spring
The enjoyment of flowers (although you’re a good gardener, I like to look at them)
Real flowers and bird eggs
We are fortunate to share the love of grandchildren. That’s the best thing to share. Shared love and laughter.
Have a wonderful birthday, Marlene!
Happy Birthday Marlene.
(And you share a birthdate with my mother Marian VanSickle Hendricks born 1912)
Thursday night I was fortunate to photograph the high schoolers headed to their Senior Prom. Lots of high heeled shoes.
Flip flops for later! not even that far into the evening. There were boutonniérs, too. Everyone looked so nice all dressed up.
Street life of Main Street Fredericksburg Texas by night and by day. Friday March 28. The weekly challenge on wordpress by Cheri Lucas Rowlands is street life. Earlier in the day Should have included the traffic below. Along Main Street Fredericksburg Texas
My friend Kristin and two of her grandchildren
This lone tulip was left out of the water overnight. I tried to revive it, see if it could stand up again. Gave it a drink.
The curved lines seem to repeat.
My dad gave me two of these vases ages ago.
The students have been photographing the white tulips and painting them in Photoshop elements
to make them a color.
Wishing every happiness to the bride and groom!
It was a loving wedding.
We are eager for it to begin. In earnest.
Monday there was a two hour delay due to ice, snow and sleet. It was unexpected and I heard it on the radio as I was already driving to school.
Can we trust the groundhog? Phil said it would be an early Spring. Well Phil, it’s Spring tomorrow on the clock and calendar but it feels like WINTER today. Chilly and gray. We are ready for blossoms, muddy earth, warm breezes. Saturday I saw my first robin in the back on the porch post.
Now I know, no one reads the blog for the weather report but the change of seasons is significant. We just want to be reassured that a true Spring is coming and will warm us up. SOON. (Florida readers- I saw those photographs of you in short sleeved shirts!!)
Before school I stopped in at the Giant Eagle and bought this bouquet. I took the daffodils to school for the students to photograph. They were buds in the morning and by the afternoon they had opened.
You can see the set up with the background of folded white paper to eliminate clutter. When I was ready to go home and the lights were off, this is what I saw.
