A Bright Yellow Lily


I love this bright yellow lily. I went to the gym Thursday morning, but after thirty minutes on the treadmill, I decided to stop my inside exercise and go outdoors. There was a light rain falling, but being outside felt so good. Seeing the above bright yellow lily was an added benefit to finishing my walk outside. I was glad I had my phone in my pocket and was able to take this photo.


This second beautiful lily was given to me two years ago and it has never failed to bloom. Every year when it blooms I am reminded of my friends kindness and generosity.

Pink Miniature Rose

Pink minature rose
My pink miniature rose is blooming. I love miniature roses. They give off a lot of color in a small area. In my last post I showed you my orange miniature rose. See it here. It was beautiful and I thought it was my favorite. Now that the pink rose is blooming I’m not sure which I like the best. Just wait until my red miniature rose blossoms. Then I may really have a problem deciding. Maybe they are all my favorite.

A Day at Bowers Museum

Bowers Museum entrance
Earlier this week, we spent a day at Bowers Museum in Santa Ana, California. The weather was gorgeous and we enjoyed the museum grounds as well as the many indoor exhibits.

These gold earrings were part of the Spirits and Headhunters:Art of the Pacific Islands exhibit. Each earring is approximately the size of a hand.

My dear hubby at the end of the day taking a break and checking out the photos he’d taken on his iPhone.
