I’d planned to take part in the Lens-Artists Challenge today but we just bought access to Le Tour de France, so that’s five hours or so where we’re glued to the screen. Yesterday morning was my Friday grocery shopping and cleaning day for my parents, but in the afternoon my mom fell, so I was there twice more, the second time to help with dinner and then watch most of game 7 of the remaining Stanley Cup semifinal game between Tampa Bay and the NY Islanders, which also meant I didn’t get much done at home. Tomorrow my parents will be here to celebrate their 69th wedding anniversary, so a bit of prep called for there as well. All of which means I have plenty to do or to distract me and the challenge for Lens-Artists isn’t a straightforward one today. So I’m sharing three bonus white photos for Life in Colour: white, all of which come from Arizona.

This photo of a snowy egret amuses me as it appears the bird is being lifted to heaven by and in the ray of light. In case you wondered, it didn’t get that far but flew off elsewhere. 🙂

Not an artistic photo but it is an iconic one for desert dwellers. Humorous, but take it to heart and stay on the path!

This bee is living proof that the poisonous datura isn’t poisonous for bees and also has enormous, beautiful white flowers.

I hope you’re each having an enjoyable, relaxing weekend.

  1. Love that snowy egret photo most of all! Have fun with your busy weekend 😀

    Your parents have been married for 69 years – how fabulous!

    Beatufiul white egret. I also love the bee! 🙂

  4. Wind Kisses says:

    Happy anniversary to your parents. They are meant to bee. 👈🏼 (That is not a typo). I love bee in the datura.

  5. Tina Schell says:

    Hope your mom’s doing ok Janet – what a whirlwind you’ve been on! If life gets a bit easier drop us a L-A response when you have a chance. Meanwhile I LOVE, LOVE LOVED your egret headed to heaven. Fab!!!

    • Thanks, Tina. Mom seems to be doing fine despite a large bump on the back of her head and I image she’s rather sore today. But we’re grateful that there were no broken bones or worse.

      That egret shot made me smile, too.

    That egret looks so ungainly you have to wonder how it can actually fly! Hope your mom is feeling ok. It is very worrying when elderly parents have a fall.

  7. So good of you to help with your parents, Janet. The images are fun, thanks for sharing! 🌞

  8. de Wets Wild says:

    Congratulations to your parents on their anniversary, Janet, and I hope the celebrations are memorable for all the most beautiful reasons!

  9. Gorgeous white photos – the egret looks like what we envision about leaving this earth for heaven. 🙂 Hope your Mom is feeling okay and that you all have a marvelous anniversary celebration. Please give them congratulations from the blogging community, and a pat on the back for what you do from the heart for them. Enjoy the races.

    I enjoyed this collection of photos, Janet, especially the egret. I salute you in the care and kindness of your parents, and salute them for 69 years together. Sending smiles your way….

  11. Tom says:

    Janet, that egret photo has an amazing angelic feel to it! Love it! Also, hope your mom’s feeling better now.

  12. The Egret is lovely. Congratulations to your parents on their wedding anniversary!
