My first thought when I look at this picture is, "Beautiful!" And then I remember how I must've looked taking this picture, chin in the mud, right down on the ground... So my second thought is "*smirk*."
This past week I went to visit a good friend in Toronto. 'Twas very peaceful; we talked, walked, ice skated, baked, drank tea, took pictures of our distorted reflections in the teapot... Hehe. :-[|) We also watched some great movies.
I also got to meet a bunch of cool people, walk through the city a good deal, and connect with another friend while I was there.
Forget Me Nots will always remind me of my Oma, who loved flowers, and who gave me a package these seeds while visiting my family a long time ago... My flowers never grew, likely because I was an 8-year-old with no experience, and I planted them in a pot of pure, clean sand. Hehe, but I loved that package of seeds, and sand or no sand, I planted them with great care.
I found a Forget Me Not in our garden last summer... I didn't even know we had them. This picture makes me smile; and it reminds me that I've not forgotten that special gift.
I love finding crocuses in the back yard. It seems like it always happens on a particularly muddy, kind of hum-drum day, too. You're cold, the day seems kind of gloomy, and then you find these bright little faces peering out of the ground... :)
Just a note to say, I just realized that my old photo blog still had its name in the email subscription link, so any subscriptions to China Blue would have been for a blog that no longer exists. If you have subscribed to China Blue in the last 10 days, I hope you see this... :-P And I would ask, if you would kindly subscribe again, that would be fantastic. No pressure or anything. But you know. ;)
To subscribe by email, scroll down, and there is a link titled "Follow by Email" on the bottom right corner of this page. The rest is self-explanatory.
Sorry about this! Thanks for understanding-- and more, for subscribing! :)
Hi there. My name is Naomi, and I love pictures. I have a great camera, which I often think I don't deserve... Except that I love it, so I guess I might a little bit. ;)
This blog is for all of my favorite pictures. Because, I think, they ought to be enjoyed if they *possibly* can! I am a self-proclaimed photographer with no formal training; just the experience of the pictures on this blog.
I hope these pictures inspire you as much as they do me. Thanks for stopping in, and I hope this blog sees you back, many times in the future.
