Retirement has been a busy time for me - a lot to catch up with after 11 years on the road, and I'm thoroughly enjoying my time!!! But sometimes in all this catching up, cleaning, changing, organizing, I long for a bit of timelessness.

 

It was in such a moment that this photo www.flickr.com/photos/dubonnet/7251639712 stopped me in my tracks, and brought me right to that quiet space of contemplation and dreaminess.

 

With Sharon's gracious permission, I created this interpretation of Sharon's beautiful plum blossoms. As I painted, I was transported from the heat-filled, sagging heat of summer, to the fresh, new, potentiality-filled moments of spring ... a time both refreshing, and rich with the season''s promises ahead. I used Unryu paper and watercolor to highlight the 'dreaminess' of the image that inspired me. Thank you, Sharon, for your kindness once again. (Please take a moment to visit Sharon's flickr stream to view some awesome work!!)

 

I spent the day with a friend yesterday making peach jam -- the first jam of the season - and luscious it was! We had a light lunch and hours of wonderful sharing and companionship. Afterwards I returned phone calls and began arrangements for teaching various classes in the fall. I'm excited about this opportunity to share with my 'home' community and begin to build new relationships.

 

I'll be off-line most of week and weekend as I'm planning to visit my sisters and Mom and computer time will be limited.

 

Hope your week is wonderful!

Fresh from our backyard plum tree. It's a self sown tree and this is the first year it has had a reasonable crop.

天寒地冻

你却绽放那诱人的芬芳

漫山遍野

飘着春的气味

你美丽却不惊人

因为不惊人

你才愈加美丽!

爱你,

爱你的芬芳

爱你的气质

爱你在严寒包裹下的羞涩

爱你在寒风中悄然绽放的热情

愿是你

用热情融化羞涩

用芬芳告别寒冬

在春的暖风中凋谢

Busy at the moment...I've decided to bite the bullet and "try" and organise my photos so I can find things a bit more easily. So my day has been spent trawling though old files adding keywords in Bridge...it's going to take YEARS!! :-) But will be worth it if I don't give up before I'm done :-)

 

Several flypapers used here including some Fly Edges.

photo taken with my phone,

recently was very cold,

then became suddenly warm and all blooming trees became to bloom,

plums, magnolias even cherries, all at once,

and again a few rainy days and flowers started to fall down...

plum blossoms

Erystalis sp I think. Drone fly on a plum blossom. Not perfect but the best of a bunch I took of this guy.

 

Good Fly Day Friday just got better*.

 

....just home and dinner is now on ...steak and chips. I generally dont actually eat much meat (2 vegan daughters and the third one vegetarian plus occasional fish to please me!) but I do really like to eat red meat on good Friday. Feels so wonderfully anti-superstition to me. In Northern Ireland we are steeped in supernatural culture. My private "protests" are not actually noticeable by anyone and to be honest they are not meant to be. But the steak will taste better for it!

I dont think they should have apologised. But I can understand why the felt they had to from a commercial point of view.

 

Happy Good-to-Better Fly Day Friday

 

There are 12,000 plum blossoms in Vancouver. Plum trees are beautiful, it's the first wave of blossoms 在溫哥華有一萬兩千株李子樹,這是春天第一波有規模的成條街的鮮花盛開,很多花街有幾公里長。

The plum season is almost over in my area. But there are some that are still blooming beautifully.

More plums. Sorry for my partial absence lately, I've been busy with other things...garden harvest, processing photos....you get the picture :-)

 

Before/after and recipe are on the Flypaper blog
