Holding this thought

It's been a rough week.  A friend shared this quote with me and I'm holding it in my thoughts.

Time Flies

Been that long, has it?  Wow.  All I can say is, it's been a busy spring.

I've been taking more photos, intending to share them.  Here are some I took yesterday around Albuquerque.

We heard about the blue tree project on the news, and went to see.  This is an art project by Konstantin Dimopoulos, happening all over, with the intent to raise awareness of trees and their importance in our world.  Here's a shot I took at Albuquerque's Tingley Beach:

blue trees

As we were leaving, we met a roadrunner in the parking lot looking for handouts.  We had no lizards, alas.


We moved on to the Botannic Gardens to see what was blooming.  There was a wedding in the wedding garden, so I couldn't take any photos of the wisterias.  I may try again this week; they are blooming, though already leafed out.

We kind of missed our timing.  The daffodils were pretty much done, and the iris weren't blooming yet, but there were some nice tulips around, and the Japanese garden is always lovely no matter what the time of year.  I liked this bridge:


and this waterfall:


What's nice is that even though the place was crawling with people, I was able to get these shots without getting photobombed.

The koi were thriving, and this goose was competing with them, begging for bread crumbs,

We left just as the park was closing, and we headed off for dinner with some dear friends.  All in all a lovely day.

The month in review

Here are all my January pictures together.  I had a lot of fun doing this, but it ate into my writing time so I won't be continuing.  Might try it again, sometime.

Day 29: Grow

New growth in the garden.  (Since I took this photo yesterday, everything's been covered with several inches of snow.)

Day 27: Sun

This is as much sun as we got today.  Rain all day - good thing for the desert!

Day 26: Together

I got this idea lying in bed.  These are miniatures of Mr. Darcy and Miss Elizabeth Bennet, given to me years ago by a friend.  I pictured them together in a ballroom.

Day 24: Stripes

Stained glass window in my bathroom, seen through the sheer shower curtain.  This is what I see when I wake up.

Day 20: Something you saw

The stage for Cirque du Soleil's Quidam, which we saw on Saturday.  Wish this was a better photo, but it's what I've got.

The show was wonderful, of course.

Day 16: two things

Plants in my office - and a stray rainbow from the crystals in the window.
