brought to you by the color red

After my post “brought to you by the color green” for last week’s Photo Challenge I couldn’t resist following up with a celebration of the color red. Once again these snippets of palettes and paintings are each linked to their original post if you would like to see the full image.





Can yellow be far behind?

This week’s Photo Challenge: It IS Easy Being Green! is “all about color,” says Michelle.

What better way to celebrate the color green than through a gallery of snippets of palettes and paintings that I have posted over the past few years. If you wish to see the full image, each one is linked to its original post . Enjoy 🙂





London’s bridge of sighs today

Although we moved to Vancouver over forty years ago, part of my heart will always be in London where I was born and brought up. Today, a year to the day after the terrorist attacks in Brussels, that heart breaks again for all those who were killed and injured on Westminster Bridge and the Palace of Westminster, as I send my deepest sympathy and heartfelt condolences to all of their families and friends.

Earth has not anything to show more fair:
Dull would he be of soul who could pass by
A sight so touching in its majesty…

William Wordsworth   Composed upon Westminster Bridge, Sept. 3, 1802

tulips on the roof


These tulips looked even more glorious atop the roof and against the bluest of skies today.
