Sunset tonight


Vinca cascading over the rocks and heading down the back path.

My flowering Cherry.  In the corner of my back yard.
Spring is definitely my favorite season of the year.  The flowers begin to bloom, the trees get their new leaves, the hummingbirds return and the sun shines more and more.  You begin to hear the sounds of children playing outside once again.  All is new, fresh and clean.
Last week I found $100.00 that Stan had given me for Christmas and I had tucked it away and forgotten about it until I was organizing a drawer. $100.00 later, most of my pots are planted.  I have enough flowers to do one or two more pots but now it is raining so I will have to wait for the sun to return once more.
Since we have a postage stamp yard, most of my flower gardening is done in pots and I usually have about 30 interspersed throughout my yard and hanging from my fence.  I think so far I have 12 done.  One real treat was when I found the two pots of fuchsia I had left out all winter had survived. My wisteria is fat with buds and my favorite azalea is nearing bloom. Yes, I definitely love Spring and its promise of new and continuing life.

For some reason, I seem to have lost my posting mojo

These are some pictures I took when Stan and I went to San Diego last month. I though I had posted them, but I was wrong:(

I shot this one directly into the sun on purpose. I wanted to silhouette the woman as she walked down the beach.

As I sat on the beach looking to the west, waiting for the sun to dip down below the horizon, I looked behind me on the hill.  I saw this Palm tree with the moon directly above it.

I am thinking waiting for the sun to set, was well worth it.

Another rather pretty shot I took as I was waiting for the sun to go down.  I love the cloud formation and the colors.
