Our World

 

This link was on the Photography Forum “ Ugly Hedgehog” that I belong to, and it is so  true. Just right click, and open hyperlink.

The southern sky had some gentle hazy shades, framed by the elm and chestnut tree bare branches. This was yesterday afternoon.

Further north, at Rotorua, this morning sky heralded in a beautiful day. May 2012.

Quotation of the day, from  Jawaharial Nehru

“ We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty,charm and adventure.

There is no end to the adventures we can have

if only we seek them with our eyes open”

Barb,we have had some great sky colours. If your friends get to the North Island, and we are still here ( looks like we will be) they are so welcome to stay here. All they need to do is email or txt, will send you my mobile number for them. Greetings from Jean

Gorgeous skies, and wonderful words. Uplifting.

I am finding that I like sky photo challenges best of all lately, and Google always seems to have the right words there for the day. Easier than either of my quotation and proverb books.

Great shots Jean!! There is still a great hole that Boomer has left in my life, while the new camera and video have parially filled that I decided to take some bus tours. This was the first. Manitoulin is abour an hour and a half by road from me. I'm trying to get a tour a month. Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

Great shots Jean! Beautiful colours!
I must tell you as I know what a proud 'Kiwi' you are: we have been eating apples from your fair country for the past month or so! 'Gala' to be precise and organic too! We love them and hope we can get similar ones here soon as our apple season is near.

So lovely, now that spring has come around again!!

Cheers from sunny Nova Scotia!

Nancy J said...

Thank you all for lovely words. Gary, a hole that might never get totally or even partially filled, I know, as I miss our Poppy so much. Jim, Gala are so tasty, great to know they go to your place, Lindsjo, enjoy the last of your hot weather, and Sophie, glad that N.S. is still "sunny". Greetings from Jean.
