Wednesday afternoon I walked to a friend’s front porch where I was dropping something off. On the way back, I noticed this bright blue ballon and it’s red string, the green weed
I’d missed seeing the balloon the first time but there it was waiting for me on my way home.
Loved the colors.
Wonder what the story is.
Kaleidoscope in Motion at Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens in Columbus Ohio. In the Children’s Garden. A perfect day to play outside as it was sixty degrees.
“A kaleidoscope (/kəˈlaɪdəskoʊp/) is an optical instrument with two or more reflecting surfaces tilted to each other in an angle, so that one or more (parts of) objects on one end of the mirrors are seen as a regular symmetrical pattern when viewed from the other end, due to repeated reflection” Wikipedia
I didn’t hear the doorbell ring or the knocker on the front door but look what was left on my doorstep.
I found a beautiful bouquet from my neighbor’s garden.
A sweet note attached to the glass milk bottle.
Thank you Marion. A lovely way to start this sad day of remembrance and memories.
Your flowers are absolutely gorgeous.

Colleen says “I have a huge stash of fabric that I like to look at for inspiration. Some I have had for many years and almost everything was purchased in the US. I order online occasionally but it gets expensive with taxes, customs and shipping and delivery to Canada can take a long time – so much for instant gratification! Currently Florida is my “go to” shopping locale because I’m there at least once a year. Found a great quilt shop in St. Augustine” http://www.beesquiltshop.com
Here is Colleen, looking to the sun.
In my China cabinet the crystal pyramid caught the evening lights and all these colors appeared.
These bright colors caught my eye as I walked by the storefront of La Feria on Walnut Street.
It’s a restaurant too.
Shot horizontally. Fingers crossed it doesn’t somersault.
Wash separately even after six years. My six word Saturday post.
These are handknit socks I made at least six years ago and they still turn the water pink every time.
When I was a kid, my mother called a red flannel nightgown that bled in the wash “a sinner”.
Have you ever had a laundry disaster with a color item that ran onto light items?
An overcast sky, rainy drizzle and/ or gray foggy mist can enhance the colors.
