Weekly Quotation: Jane Austen

I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of any thing than of a book! — When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Up

I took these photos on a beautiful, clear blue sky day. I used the blue sky itself as a background while looking up. We often don’t view flowers looking up from underneath.

Look for more up photos here:

Weekly Photo Challenge: Change

Spring is my favorite season when so many changes occur. Flowers slowly emerge from the ground and buds blossom upon trees. I love to see the colors come alive everywhere after a cold, wet, and dull winter. This week’s photo challenge focuses on change. I decided to highlight  Rhododendrons growing outside my house. Rhododendrons are Washington’s  state flower. I found flowers on the same bush at different flowering stages.

Weekly Quotation: Michael Upchurch

The ultimate luxury is to reread: to revisit a book to see how time has treated it, how memory has distorted it, or how my own passing years have cast a new light on it.

Weekly Quotation: Edith Lovejoy Pierce

We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Geometry

One of my favorite photo ‘subjects’ is geometric and abstract designs. Black and white enhances bold shapes in photos. So I combined B&W and geometric designs around my city for this week’s photo challenge: geometry.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Happy

I’m very late for this week’s photo challenge. I was excited to learn how to insert a photo gallery into a post. These are a few things that make me happy. I enjoy beautiful flowers, sweet desserts, wonderful books, and my dog & family.

Weekly Quote: Mark Twain

In a good bookroom you feel in some mysterious way that you are absorbing the wisdom contained in all the books through your skin, without even opening them.
