time to say goodbye

Those of you who follow thechangingpalette will remember my year of sundays last Thanksgiving Day and know how beloved our little Sunday was. Sadly, she will no longer be keeping me company in the studio anymore as we said goodbye to her today. We will miss her but are relieved she is suffering no longer. For those of you who didn’t know her visit my Thanksgiving Day post and see how very special she was.

WPC: Transient

Depicting a state of impermanence.

I couldn’t resist re-visiting my photos of the Mirroir d’Eau in Bordeaux for this week’s Photo Challenge: Transient, where every few minutes the scene changes as the 2 cms of water that create the largest reflecting pool in the world drain away to expose its granite floor…

…before returning again to the delight of adults and children alike.

You can see more of this magical World Heritage Site in my post of December 2015

Photinia leaves and sky reflected in the water on our path with its pachysandra border.

Dedicated to the people of North Kensington grieving for the tragic loss and suffering of their families and friends.

WPC: Evanescent

Evanescent

For this week’s Photo Challenge Krista asks us to
show a moment in time that holds meaning for you.

No surprise that I would wish to share this special moment in time like no other after our beautiful new granddaughter was born just a few days ago. It is all about love, joy, trust and hope. It raised my spirits into the stratosphere, hopefully it will raise yours too.

Happy Mother’s Day

I know I posted this photo for International Women’s Day only two months ago, but I love the people in it so much that I had to re-post it for Mother’s Day today as it expresses everything about what being a loving mother and grandmother is all about. So, Happy Mother’s Day to these two wonderful mothers and to all the wonderful mothers, grandmothers and mothers-to-be who might be visiting thechangingpalette today, and of course to all of you who like me are remembering our own mothers, no longer with us but always lovingly in our thoughts.
