Ghost-Like Flowers + Have a Rosy Weekend!


I'd like to share with you what made me happy today:

*Walking up, realizing it's the weekend, and curling up for another thirty minutes of sleep.

*Sitting by the window and savouring my favourite flavour of coffee.

*The joy of watching a baby smile.

*Finding music that speaks to my soul.
Speaking of which, here's a beautiful and inspirational song. "Always Look On The Bright Side of Life."
I hope you like it as much as I did.

Faded Rose.

What made you happy today?

Have an "everything is looking rosy" kind of weekend!



Beautiful Ranunculus. (Buttercups.)

I leave you with this one. Thanks to Marijke, bottom flower is (Buttercup) Ranunculus . (Mystery solved!)
I am pretty darn smitten with Ranunculus Asiaticus right now.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Happy Easter and Passover! xx

What makes me happy today? Waking up to a new day - having 2 grandchildren spending the weekend with me and one spending the morning since 5am on the couch with me, snuggling. Being able to enjoy what I love to do...and visiting my friends in the blogosphere! Have a wonderful day and a Blessed Easter! Your photos were simply gorgeous!

Your beautiful flowers most definitely made me smile today! So did spending a few minutes having coffee with my husband this morning. Usually weekday mornings are so busy, it was nice to have a little time together before he left for work.

Αγαπημένη μου Μπέττυ
Σ ευχαριστώ πάρα πολύ για τα υπέροχα λουλούδια αλλά και το καταπληκτικό βίντεο!!!
Ενθουσιάστηκα για το γνωστό και υπέροχο τραγούδι, τα κεράκια και την Σκωτσέζικη μπάντα!!!
Κι εγώ γίνομαι ευτυχισμένη με πολύ απλά πράγματα, κυρίως με την φύση!
Σου εύχομαι ένα υπέροχο Σαββατοκύριακο και καλό Πάσχα, με υγεία και χαρά!
Πολλά φιλάκια

These beautiful flowers make me happy today. The first image reminds me of a watercolor I painted many decades ago. Which also makes me happy.

Happy Easter to you my Friend!

Pedro Luis López Pérez said...

It's fascinating to sit by the window with a cup of coffee and watch life go by. The smile of a baby, a sunbeam, dancing flowers, the birds singing their melodies, but, above all, listening to a beautiful song "Always look on the bright side of life".
Beautiful pictures, full of color and beauty to adorn our screens this Spring started.
Hugs, Betty.
What I liked this weekend is a trip that I did for a now defunct rail route.

ΑΘΗΝΑ said...

Nice roses!
Today shopping made me happy!
Have a colourful weekend!

Juli said...

Love all that pink petal beauty! Gorgeous, gorgeous! It makes feel like I'm gliding and floating into spring. Not so many sweet blossoms opened yet here in Toronto..but they will come. As for me, what's making me happy is a lazy day..no appointments, no deadlines, just sweet sunshine, good reading and good company! Have a lovely weekend! And, thanks for sharing all that beauty!

Momma Fargo said...

Your 'ghost' shots are dream-like. I also loved the way you placed the roses for the last shots.

Photographing birds on my berry tree made me happy today. Also cooking lunch for my son, chicken the way he likes, garnished with loads of home-grown coriander. The smell was divine! Glad you asked!

La sonrisa de Hiperión said...

Como siempre tus fotos espectaculares...

Saludos y feliz domingo.

mmmmm your roses remind me that summer's on its way.

Real simple things made me smile today - sunshine, warm air, and cherry blossoms. And of course the longer daylight. I'm amazed to see light at 7pm. :D
