  8. All that we see or seem
    Is but a dream within a dream.

    This line is one of my all time favorites!

    That vase makes for a beautiful sundial :-)
    What time did you take that picture?

  9. Blue + white = one of my favorite color combos of all time.

    What was the temperature the day you snapped the cafe scene? I can't help but doubt you'd see many Americans sitting outside in the cold winter sun except at ski resorts and such. I might be wrong, though. : )

    xox,
    Susan

  10. Winter blues are up for conjecture from the person viewing. It all depends on how you look at it. These photos show inspiration as they are in sunny and open areas.

  11. Delightful, Merisi.The blue vase and white daisies are so lovely.
    Its always a pleasure visiting your blog.
    I agree with the blurb from National Geo. Traveler. I just realized I no longer have the Feb. issue. My new March one is now on the table.

  20. Thanks Merisi;) It's done! I also worried about losing photos etc on my blog (although mine is less than two years old) but I was assured this cannot actually happen too easily, I'm not sure about changing from your old[er] type blog to this new one. Yes, I had an influx of spam without the verification and had to re-activate it. Thanks again for your beautiful blog.

  21. Let us hyope that some primroses will soon blow the winter blues away! But your pictures are beautiful :-)

  22. Merisi, I am so happy that I am again visiting your blog. Your photos and comments often make my heart sing.

    After reading Sue's comment about Nat'l Geo., I had to smile. Today is the second day in a row when one of my cyberfriend's blog was mentioned in the Traveler issues. What celebrities with whom I associate! The flowers in the vase are more than beautiful.

  23. I knew it had to be Venice even before I looked at your caption. So beautiful and I love the blue in your picture, so vibrant, the perfect color for Venice.

  24. Ah, brave Europeans enjoying their cappuccino on the frozen terrace in midwinter! (Or maybe some unusually hardy tourists, but I have my doubts.)

  25. Un rêve...Demain, je m'offre des fleurs...des pensées pour toi.

  26. Thank you all for your kind comments!

    Girl from Cherry Blossom Street:
    I must have taken that picture early on a Sunday morning, walking along the seaside, at Venice's Zattere district.
