Saturday Morning

This rose was such a deep red, I was trying to get contrast in
the picture but there are no highlights... just that beautiful deep crimson red.
This was made yesterday.  I suppose I can say I did take a few seconds to
smell the roses yesterday but unfortunately there is no scent in this one.

Today I'm posting some totally random photos, some things I ran across recently.

A few days ago I was looking through one of my favorite magazines,
Traditional Home, and saw some blue shades for walls
that I liked.  I was reminded that I had bought a couple of years ago
some "oops" Benjamin Moore paint in the shade here called
"Serenity".  Sounds good to me for the walls of my studio.

Benjamin Moore paints are a little more pricey but I do really like
their colors and coverage.  The man at the store said the wrong color was mixed
for a customer.

Only $5 a gallon instead of $40+ a gallon.  Just had to share this.  ;-)

My dearest Eileen, may I have this dance?

Clint's mom with a dolfin in 2005.  Can you believe as I type this, today
at the age of 88 she leaves Florida for a cruise.

Tired of dancing, it was time for Picasso and Eileen to go
for a swim.  I like what she wrote under the picture:

Picasso went for a swim, I held on to his flippers.

 May everyone have a wonderful weekend.  Take some time to relax.  Thank you for reading this blog.

Deep greens and blues are the colours I choose
Won't you let me go down in my dreams
And rockabye sweet baby James

You never need to thank me for reading your blog, Cindy. It is always a pleasure! Recently I had the walls of my living room and dining room painted a blue-green hue called celadon which I find calming.

It's wonderful to see the joy on Eileen's face as she frolics in the water with the dolphin. Let's all make a vow to keep our zest for life always. Have a safe and happy weekend, dear friend Cindy!

I'd love to swim with dolphins! But first I should learn to swim :(

Gorgeous Rose, flowers have the best colours in nature!

The rose is beautiful! You can darken the black in the flower if you like but I like it! I think it's gorgeous.

Thanks everyone for your comments!

Shady, the color celadon sounds beautiful. I am taking a vase in the car with me when we move that I believe is celadon pottery. It has the greenish glaze. I'm feeling positive about the blue color for the room. :-) Thank you! (i know, i can't help) it :~D

Emma, thank you for the blogger award, this am I sent you an email, I have a question. I'd remembered you talking about some fear driving near the water several months ago if I am not mistaken. I feel that way sometimes, too.
