Saturday Photo Hunt --- Square







SQUARE

Slim pickings in my archives for this theme but this quilt is square and hangs on my family room fireplace wall. I couldn't resist the lovely Japanese fabric when I saw it, but since I am not a real quilt artist this is a quite plebian design I used. Click to enlarge.




I wish you could get bigger images on blogger. This is in focus but doesn't look like it until you enlarge it.

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND EVERYONE

Saturday Photo Hunt --- Dusty







DUSTY


This dusty path near us is a favourite walk along the edge of the Fraser River. We share the walk with dogs and horses and when it rains it becomes rather muddy and we have to walk elsewhere.

HAPPY EASTER TO THOSE CELEBRATING IT

Saturday Photo Hunt --- Road




Now some of you take photos especially for Photo Hunt themes and others browse their archives. I tend to be in the latter category and since there were slim pickings for road in there, I am stretching the theme just a tad or rather a lot. It's more like a building with some road! Good heavens, those New Zealanders drive on the wrong side of the road!



This was taken in Napier, New Zealand which was levelled by an earthquake in 1931 and rebuilt totally in the Art Deco style. It also has the distinction of being the only World Heritage site in New Zealand and the place where my father-in-law was born, although he later emigrated to Australia. Click to enlarge if you wish.

Saturday Photo Hunt --- Trees











TREES


I meant to take a photo of the Spring blossom trees when I was out and about today but got sidetracked. So I had to root through the archives and found this nice collection of trees , taken on a walk on the dyke at Steveston at the end of last summer. Click to enlarge, I think. Is anyone else finding this enlarging is not always working?

Spring in the air and in my step

This morning I feel good, for no accountable reason - and I just had to share it.

I have not been able to make much time lately for sl, or blogging and I have missed that. I half started several posts and they didn't get finished or posted.

Tho maybe it is accountable...

On account of the bright golden morning sunshine guilding everything in glory. The blue sky, warmth in the air and the fact that spring has finally and unarguably sprung.

Such simple things can lift us up. So - just now, my soul has fairy wings... and is dancing

.. and I thought the world is so full of bad stuff it might be nice to share this feeling. Now I need to publish this before something dents my good mood :-)

Oh. Three tracks I am really liking just now:

"All I Ever Wanted" by Faith hill - don't confuse it with Basshunter's track of the same title (that I also liked) Also

"Desenchantee" (radio Mix) by Siria ...aaand

"Be Your Wings" by Girl Next Door(the Girl x1 Boy x2 group) I really like as a bouncy Track and it has a great video also.

Saturday Photo Hunt ---- Closed







CLOSED


As I showed in the Photo Hunt post for Machinery, there's construction work taking place at my favourite walk along False Creek at Granville Island. So of course parts of it are closed off and you have to take a small detour.
