I suggest you read my previous post "Little Childhood Memories". You can't help but break out in a big smile when you read comments of the readers as they tell about their childhood memories.
Can you believe it, last weekend, the end of May (Memorial Day weekend) the hill sides in California were still blooming -sorry they're all a little blurry, because I took them out of a car that drove at least 70 miles an hour (too dangerous to get out on the freeway here)
Aren't the white big blooming plumes (that's my scientific name for it, LOL)beautiful?These blooms were a nice surprise after it took us 3 1/2 hours just to get out of the city (Los Angeles), because EVERYONE had a long weekend off (because of Memorial Day), so everyone was out on the road!
When we went back home, taking the same freeway, traffic was not as heavy. This made our trip back home three hours shorter! A first impression was that the sun set this hill ablaze in bright colors around 7 pm
But when we got a little further on the road and closer to this same mountain, it looked like it was not only the sun, but also blooming pink and purple flowers that made this hillside so beautiful. It could fit in the series of "God dropped the paintbox" pics!
Whatever you do this weekend, may come rain, hail, or sunshine, your smile is good for the soul!
By the way, next week I/we are going on a week's vacation and come back on Fathers Day, so I won't post. Except for Father's Day I made a post ahead. Have a very good week, and I'm hoping for sun, since I'm also going to paint some.
