This week  I'm sending you these roses,
all coming from the same plant!

Go down these stairs and sit at a nice bench


and let the light and the dark clouds float by
the heavy and the fluffy ones

do you hear music
from far away places
on instruments you may not know?

 or let the world go by when you follow
the Koi fish on their journey.

Enjoy your day. 
Enjoy your week....

most from Huntington Library Gardens.

How lovely, I think I'd like to sit and watch the clouds and smell the roses whilst listening to music! Sounds perfect to me:)

I'll keep these roses for tomorrow that used to be a blue Monday.

Sreddy Yen said...

Hello Jeannette! Some lovely photos - I like the koi fish one the best. Is your header a painting or is it a photo?

Keep well :)

Maria said...

Thank you for a great post and for the roses:)/Maria

Zuzana said...

Thank you for the roses and such a tranquil post.;) Hope you are having a lovely Sunday,

Nora said...

That was nice, Jeannette. Thank you for the enjoyment. I especially liked the Koi. They are always so pretty to look at. The bench under the gazebo was also very nice, what a good place to sit down. I like it when you share your photos with us. I must do that more often too.

What a lovely quiet adventure for my Sunday morning. Thank you, Jeanette. I especially enjoyed the music...the pipes are as haunting, I think, as the scent of my rose.

Eki said...

Thank you for the roses, the thoughts, and the music, Jeannette. THey are beautiful and I'm sure will keep your readers cheerful the whole week. Have a pleasant week ahead to you too.

Great photos! You ask the right questions! Yes I like sketching better, then adding some color. smart thing

crochet lady said...

What a pleasant place! Thanks for sharing.

jeannette said...

For me it is similar to when you go on one of your trips that you post on your blog! (other people's trips are always better than your own -smile:) )

Thank you! We made a little trip today we always do once a month, to get the Dutch delicatessen that I can't do without:) Have a great week!

I put this post together at midnight, and Sunday turned out to be rainy too - how funny! but I wouldn't it allow it to dampen my mood. Hope there's something good happening for you this week!

Great idea to keep the roses till tomorrow! So that means you won't be blue, but you'll have a very colorful Monday:)

Hey, good to hear from you! Quess it means you have a school break? My header is a photo that I played around with in photo shop:)

Thank you! In a way it's the European way to spend a Sunday, isn't it?

Thank you -it was nice today for me too. Still adjusting to wearing a jacket outside:)

Thank you friend! I do the pics, because I don't have the story telling ability you have:) Hope you have a great week!

Thank you friend! If I had had more time I would have posted a video, my the idea for this post came after midnight:)

Thank you, Eki! Very pleased that you like roses too (in Holland it's okay to give a male friend roses for his birthday - but in the USA, that would be awkward:))

I spent a lot of years and a pockets full of money to be able to ask the right questions (look at my "about me" story and you'll know what I mean:) )
Bytheway, in art I hope that you continue with what you like best! (also with art there's peer pressure...)

You're welcome! The place was Huntington Library Gardens, which is as good as a botanical garden, but with books and paintings!

Gaston Studio said...

Roses, music and koi, sounds like heaven.

Rudee said...

They're all lovely photos. For myself, I think I'll take a bit of time to ponder the clouds and smell the roses.

Halcyon said...

Beautiful shots! I can almost smell the roses.

Carolyn H said...

Jeannette: Just a lovely post! Thanks for sharing it.

Marvin said...

Wonderful! You've painted a beautiful scene.

jeannette said...

Sometimes we need a little extra romance:)

And I imagine you do a few stitches in between the ponderings:)

Thanks for visiting my blog (is this the first time?) -love to visit all the places you post on your blog!

Carolyn H.,
Thank You! I enjoyed seeing the change of the seasons in your neck of the woods:)

Yeah, the older I get, the more romantic - my French side must becoming stronger:) greetings to you too!

Thank you! My painting is on the post below -these are all photos -hope you're not disappointed:)

Pat Tillett said...

I love photo tours...

jeannette said...

Never thought about it that way -that's why I love it too-it's like looking at your friend's photo album

jeannette said...

Sorry I went out of order with my replies! Glad you enjoyed it:) Take care, friend!

The clouds are magnificent and the roses look as if they would last forever. Very pretty!:)

Evelyn said...

Chinese instruments? And japanese carp... lovely..

jeannette said...

A Lady's Life,
Considering they were blooming late Sept. they are those long lasting roses:) Have a great weekend

This was I believe in Quang Zhou, and I told hubby and son to wait for me, cause I saw those instruments-so I just had to take their pic before we would enter the mall:)

Arija said...
