Morning Light


golden crab apple tree 

I loved the way the morning sunshine was brightening
up these blooms!  There's been a warm breeze blowing all day
and the petals are floating down to the ground, almost like snow.
Lovely!

    1. Even I am happy with spring now and not wanting snow. But that didn't happen until last week. ha. (Shh...don't tell anyone. ha.)

  3. Beautiful flowering crab apple. A sure sign of Spring!
    I saw a great motto toay which might interest you:

    "Go confidently
    in the direction
    of your dreams!

    Live the life
    You imagined"
    - Thoreu

    I don't know about you but Spring always somehow makes this easier to achieve :)

    1. Well, that is a very interesting quote.
      What do you do if reality gets in the
      way of your dreams? haha,

      I beat you to the spring cleaning on the blog!
      How do you like my grey background?
      The dogwood is blooming, so she got to be
      featured in the header for a while.

    2. Well we had better ask Mr Thoreu. I suppose he means try to make our dreams come true which is a hard thing to do, sometimes impossible but ocassionally it happens!

      Yes, like your Spring Clean and the grey background and of course the dogwood.
      I have a photo of my purple magnolia which I actually remembered to photograph this year which makes a change.

      My blog requires a mojor overhaul rather than a Spring Clean. I have rewritten my profile twice, saved it but each time it went into cyberspace. Nex, I want to get a new design and tpo widen the page - not sure how to do that yet.

    3. I noticed your magnolia and it's beautiful! I'm not sure we have purple ones here...just pink and white!

      I know how to widen your page, so when you're ready I can help you with that!

    4. Thanks Betsy - that would be great to widen my page, even Keith could read it then! You are blessed with a great cerebellum filled with Oestrogen and lots of connections to your brain halves!! to allow you to multi-task very efficiently! I am lumbered with a load of Testosterone!! so I can do only one thing at a time! ROFL

    5. I don't think widening your page enlarges the font, but I'll let Keith give you a critique. ha.

    6. Thanks for you help Betsy with my blog widening and the header picture. Picmonkey is a fabulous tool.
      I need to think about how to highlight my message in the header photo or whether there is another way of showing it.
      Yes you are right about the font size remaining the same.
      I am pleased because I can now post X-Large photos - they actually fit onto the page. :)

      Delete
    7. I think you need to change the color of your message so it's readable. You could do it fresh in picmonkey using the original photo.
      Yes, I like the larger photos! I go into the html and make them even bigger!

  4. Apple blossoms are so pretty.

    1. Aren't they? They really only last a day or two after their peak and then they start falling. Thankfully we didn't have a storm to blow them off any earlier!

  5. I have to think the wait for Spring was worth it, with those lovely blooms. The header is just stunning. Love it.

    1. IT's hit strong this week with temps in the 80's! It feels wonderful to have the windows open today!

  6. Snow... I can't bear the thought. ;)
    Our trees and flowers are blooming now too. There's something new every day.

    1. Yes, even I want spring to stay! The fever hits me about 8 weeks after the rest of you. ha.

    2. I can handle snow up until mid-April that's normal, but once we hit May I'd like to turn the furnace off and let it rest until at least October.

      Delete
    3. Yes, I do agree! We slept with the window cracked open a little last night! But the flannels are still on the bed!

    1. Geat that you have your internet back Gloria :)

    2. I think another couple of days and the blooms will give way to the leaves. Then it will be boring until they turn fall colors! haha.

    3. Tsk tsk.....don't talk like that!
      Get those fancy toes out in your flip flops.....right Eddie?

      Enjoy your weekend
      Cheers!
      Linda:o)

    5. Eddie yes Im glad I have internet again:)
      Betsy I think the same after blooming they will be green and you have to wait to turn color.

      Flip flops Linda?
      I find funny this name:)

      Delete
    6. Don't you have flip flops in Chile. Gloria?
      . . or are they Flop Flips there LOL
      Yes, right Linda, like your's!

      Delete
    7. Yes Betsy, exchange those passiona killer red wellies for flip flops like Linda's ROFL

      Delete
    8. haha...oh, you go ahead and admire Linda's toes... I'll keep my wellies on today since it's going to rain...

      Delete
    9. I'd like to admire your's as well! lol
      Do you wear flip flops and paint your nails? lol

      Delete
    10. Well, sure...but aren't we all still waiting to see what flip flops are called in Chile? ha.

      Delete
    11. Don't change the subject!!! LOL

      Of course a secondary consideration is to see what flip flops are called in Chile but at this precise moment Gloria is busy using her loaf in the kitchen making bread!
      I wonder whether she will be inquisitive and return here and see our question LOL
      Yep she will because all women are inquisitive and always return, even Linda and Suza. LOL

    13. Where's the 'like' button, Suza? I want to click on it! haha.

    14. Laughing. Eddie, really? All women are inquisitive? You return the most of anyone! :-)

      I have found a few translations which Gloria can clear up. Chancletas... ojotos... pantuflas... chanclas... lots of choice!

      Delete
    15. I thought that would make you bite, Suza!! ROFL
      I just love to see what you all say but Gloria and Linda are busy right now. Londa is sunning herself at the cottage in yet another pair of flip flops and Gloria is serving home made bread at her place. I expect Betsy is dining or doing the washing up.

      I wonder what your comment you rejected said LOL
      It follows mine!

      Looking forward to what Gloria says about your suggestions. xo

  11. So delicate. And your header is stunning. I imagine with the parakeets singing inside and the white crowned sparrows outside, you have fabulous stereo!

    1. The parakeets are funny. They really perk up when they hear the birds outside. I wonder what they're saying to each other...haha.

  12. Isn't it great? I'm having coffee out on the patio every morning, watching the birds and laughing my dogs frolicking. It was all well worth the wait for sure! :)

  15. Hi Betsy, back from 14 wonderful days in Provençe. I just admired, what you achieved in the meantime. This dish looks so delicious, no wonder, the Mister liked it. And your new header is so gorgeous! And so is this picture of today. The sublime, graceful quintessence of spring...I also liked the picture of your smiling boys so much! Their faces look so untroubled and happy. I have to repeat time after time: you do a great job!
    Love Christel
