    I always love following you through your palette of colours and through your accurate eye !

  9. Marie-Noëlle,
    merci! :-)
    My photo opportunities have been probably less than a handful of "outings" since the January. Yikes! I comfort myself by thinking that if I am lucky, I'll finish school this summer. I cherish every opportunity to take pictures that are not for school (among others, at least a thousand pictures of white cherry blossoms, which sent me all over town in search of one last still blooming tree - all went so fast this spring, here today, gone tomorrow!). I am getting into whining here, yikes!

  10. Gorgeous, just gorgeous in red and I also love the Lilac entries beneath, their fragrance and delicate beauty all very nice~

  11. A wonderful presentation of colour!

  12. I'm ALWAYS ready for peonies!!!

  13. Something about the blonde girl in the red coat... is very fetching. Great photo

  14. OOooo I really like the closeup of the teaspoon and cup. Great composition. I'm coveting the little creamer sitting by the teacup.
    Always fun to come here and smell the lilacs and see what the world is like through your eyes.

  15. Red and white, the colours of Polish and Canadian flags, the two countries I lived in.

  16. I love all of these pictures! The first one has stolen my heart :-) Perfect!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
