The past two weeks have been quite difficult.  I hope that my photos from a recent trip will transport you away….for just a moment or two.

In mid-October, I went to the New York Botanical Garden‘s show, Monet’s Garden. My garden had just a few flowers, so I was amazed at the amount of plants in full bloom outside the Conservatory.  Even some water lilies were still blooming in the courtyard pools. Of course, inside was overflowing with plants similar to the ones that Claude Monet  planted in his garden in Giverny, France.  I hope you enjoy these photos and take a moment to smile.

All my best to those who are still struggling.

The holidays are upon us and, once again, I am looking at lights.  This time it’s the wonderful assortment of lights decorating all sorts of things.   Conventional…….

Claude Monet said “It’s on the strength of observation and reflection that one finds a way. So we must dig and delve unceasingly.”

Enjoy the holidays!
