Beautiful! All that green. Here in California, everything has gone brown and will stay that way until the winter rains. It’s so cool to be in touch with people on the other side of the planet and have a window into your world.
Anne, that’s EXACTLY how I feel. Looking across the globe when we are cold and wet and have the winter glums is the most wonderful pick-me-up. But you have had the most horrendously hot summer, hope ours isn’t that hot!
Hard to grasp that you’re just getting started w/sping and fall is nipping at our heels! I’m ready tho. Sitting by the fire sounds fabulous!!!! 🙂
Winter for me, NB, can be as short as it likes. As I get older, I am a creature who needs all the Vit D she can get! Our winter has gone from April to September as we had no definable autumn and that’s five months too long in my book…
Lovely Spring pictures, and fine looking dogs, as well. We have a Jack Russell who loves all seasons with the exception of Spring and Fall rain. Just treated her one ear for a nasty case of sunburn last week, and tonight she’s snuggled in bed with my son, as it will be quite chilly tonight. That’s Fall in Western New York! There’s a nip in the air in the morning, and the first hints of color are appearing in the trees. My son complained the classrooms were “beastly hot” last week, yet stated he rode his bike to school this morning with his sweatshirt sleeves over his hand as it was cold this morning. Delivering papers after school he complained he was hot! I reminded him yhat yhis time of year is exciting, especially weather-wise. We experienced an extremely mild winter last year, with almost no snow to speak of, which was fine with me. I wonder if we will make up for it year. If we do, may we come to visit?
Of course, Judi. Visitors are always welcome here. And what you say about the variety of weather is so true. We call this place: Four Seasons in One Day. I took the flower pics this morning and now, 4 hours later, its cloudy and the breeze has sharpened. But, summer’s a comin’!
Plenty of Vit. D here, Prue!
The summer rains are subsiding and winter is upon us (only two seasons here in West Africa).
Pretty much wall-to-wall sunshine now through to next July. Bliss!
Mark, so good to hear from you! Of course your sunshine is the stuff that dreams are made of. And your beaches. West Africa looks like Paradise in your photos.
Thank you for connecting. It’s been a looooong time. I do hope you and your extended family of children are well.
Did you know that A Thousand Glass Flowers won a silver medallion in the 2012 Readers’ Favourite Book Awards? Presented at the Miami Book Fair in November. (USA’s answer to Frankfurt and London) but sadly I cannot be there. They will mail the medallion to me which is nice and husband wants to build me a podium, present it to me with a kiss on both cheeks and a bunch of flowers and then he wants me to sing the National Anthem (both verses) while he raises the flag! 🙂
A much deserved award! Wonderful!
The combination of children’s projects, the rainy season and the usual net connection problems have kept me of the blogging scene a while, but finally getting back into things.
No doubt you’ve been following developments in the UK ebook market. Looks like the winter season will see a huge surge in ereading and ebook sales, which Gisborne especially should benefit from, with its local setting.
Both sides of the Atlantic are being kinder to me and my novels than I could possibly ever dream.
