Blog Birthday #3!!! And Magic (iPhone) Flowers


Hello my friends! Yesterday, I realized my blog has hit the 3 year mark! I can't believe it. I started it when I was recovering from a couple of surgeries, at the encouragement of my sister Penny. I can't believe how the time has flown! 

Thank you, to those of you who have stuck with me, who have encouraged me and my art, and who have shared your lives with me ... So many of you, I have never met, but you have become my friends. You've inspired me and have touched my life in so many ways. It's been an amazing journey, and I am so grateful!

On another note, I have gotten a little crazy with my iPhone lately and with the various photo applications that do fun, crazy things to my photos. Sharing photos on instagram? Fun, but it can be a time sucker, just like Facebook. I guess, "everything in moderation" isn't just about food and wine, but technology as well! 

Anyway, here are a few flowers I fussed with on my iPhone, that I thought I share with you, my blogging friends. 





















I have a dream too, 
but it's about singing
and dancing and
making people happy.
It's the kind of dream that gets better
the more people you share it with.
And I found a whole group 
of friends who have the same dream,
and that makes us sort of like a family.

Happy Blog Birthday!!
Beautiful photos, they express such joy and light!
And fun quote!
Funny I used a few Sesame St. songs in my yoga dance class today, and I took them off of my playlist for tomorrow thinking they are too silly, but after seeing your muppet quote, I am going to put back the "Smile connection" into my class tomorrow!
Thanks always for your smiles and inspiration!
Blessings and light and hugs to you:))

Gorgeous images. It's hard to pick a favourite, but maybe that second pale pink rose. It shimmers. Congratulations on your third anniversary.

where did you take the picture of these flowers and also define the types of those beautiful flowers? because the collection of those flowers were adorable and could be used to Send Flowers to Pakistanis.

What an interesting blog, introduced by a thought-provoking photo. The unusual wall painting of the dwellings is
also a strangely modern interpretation. Something like this hieroglyphic view of a park by Swiss painter Paul Klee, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/
BRUE-8LT475
.

The image can be seen at wahooart.com who can supply you with a canvas print of it.
