Walking With Camera

Yesterday was another beautiful day in No. California. I took my camera on my walk past this pretty garden...I love the delicate tiny Fleurette's that make up the hydrangea flower. This rose is starting to fade but I found it to be quite beautiful yet. Like an older woman perhaps who is aging gracefully (like moi, I hope!)
I do LOVE hollyhocks. This one in an alley is tall and proud and wonderful to behold.
I felt like singing: "Zippiety do dah, zippiety day;There's a blue bird on my oh my what a wonderful day!"
And now there are four playing "post cards" each to be mailed out across the states and even the ocean to my friends in my quilters group postcard swap. One more to go.
The new one is sparkly bright with sequins brightening up the hearts, diamonds, clubs and spades in felt colors. Trimmed in gold metallic threads too. I call it "Vegas"!


  1. This post certainly makes my day. All the things I love to see, flowers, birds and art. I hope you continue to enjoy the day.

  2. Those 'cards' are to die for Lynn!! I absolutely love them.

    Beautiful blooms, I laughed when I saw 'in the alley' cuz that's where I always saw them as a kid.
