Saturday I was on the road by 6:15 am heading down to Tucson to meet another fellow blogger (and another Lisa), from (https://peaceoflife.today/). Since we both like the outdoors and bird-watching, we met at Sweetwater Wetlands where we walked, chatted, and took photos. (The actual website is rather boring, so here’s a link to the Yelp site where you can read more about it or go to the website and scroll down for some more interesting information.)

After we were done there, my mission was to visit Seven Cups, a highly-touted tea house serving and selling only Chinese tea and tea accouterments. Unfortunately, they didn’t open until 11 am so we went with my second choice, The Scented Leaf where, for an additional cost, you can have CBD added to your tea! Yeah, that’s so not me but we did enjoy sipping our tea outside, watching people and traffic go by. After that, we made our way to Seven Cups where the seating area wasn’t open, browsed and bought tea, then had a delicious lunch next door at Tumerico, a vegan and vegetarian Latin restaurant. It was a great day.

But…on my way from a precious parking spot in downtown to The Scented Leaf, I passed the Rialto Theater which had…ta ha…doors!! Even when in somewhat of a hurry, you have to stop for doors.

This door wasn’t exactly fancy, but its redeeming feature was…

…a pretty cool mural next to it. Just FYI, no political meaning to this either way, just admiring the art.

Road trip today!! I’ll be taking the most boring drive in the US from Phoenix to Southern California for a week-long visit with our older daughter and her husband. I’ll have posts each day while I’m gone and I’ll respond to comments, but the only visiting I do will be there. I’ll make up for it when I get back, I promise, and you know there will be photos of the ocean, doors, flowers, and who knows what else. 🙂 Be safe and healthy while I’m gone and do talk to me because I miss each of you if you don’t.

We’ve all had a rough year, so let’s sit down at a table in France to enjoy this delicious yet light dessert which just happens to have bright pink sauce and fits beautifully into a square. It may look small, but don’t be fooled. It’s a magical dessert that will be just enough for everyone.

One of our favorite groups is Pink Martini, a group that can do all types of music in all sorts of languages on all kinds of instruments and all superbly. I’ve been privileged to hear them more than once, this time with my husband in Chicago where they also brought along the Von Trapp grandchildren. It was marvelous and naturally the stage was lighted in bright pink.

(I’ll be road tripping today so excuse late responses and visits. I’m off to Tucson to meet another blogger named Lisa, We’re going to visit Sweetwater Wetlands, have tea at a new-to-me tea house, and lunch somewhere so I’m sure thesre will be some photos to share. I hope all your weekends are off to a grand start.)

I’m excited not only to share a favorite subject, a bee nose diving into a flower, but my first photo duo using the slider, which I only found thanks to Dan at nofacilites. He’s been giving lessons on using the block editor and as far as the slider goes, once I knew where to look, it was simple to find. Thanks so much, Dan. This particular bee and flowers were at Saguaro National Park near Tucson, Arizona. These cacti and flowers were very small but eye-catching.

In my continuing quest to combine challenges into one daily post, I’ve managed to come up with some doors that have some sort of pink to them. Trust me, probably won’t happen again this month, although I have lots of archives left to troll. Today we’re traveling to France, which I wish I were actually doing but there’s this little pandemic stuff going on. So tighten your virtual seatbelts and lets fly.

No actual pink doors, but plenty of pink paint or stone. Enjoy.

Have to say that as much as I enjoy a good door, I love good shutters just as much!

Yes, these roses were also in Descanso Gardens. A bright, pink square for Becky and Jude and all of you to brighten your Tuesday…or maybe Wednesday, depending on where you live. And if you look at the rose-to-be in the back left, well, this bud’s for you. 🙂

Let me add Cee’s FOTD (Flower of the Day) as well. 🙂
