I’ve been looking through old photos courtesy of Google Photos who likes to share photos from 8 years ago (or 7 or 6 or however many years) on this day or this week that many years ago. This one struck me as just right for Tuesday. 🙂 There won’t be many wildflowers when I go to Wyoming later this summer but this view can always make me feel I’m in the mountains in spring. And for you old rock aficionados (Brian, I’m talking to you), there was no smoke on the water or fire in the sky…thankfully. 🙂

For much of this week I’m just sharing photos that I like…no particular theme (except always for Thursday Doors) and I hope you enjoy the random photos. Today I’m on the way to Prescott, Arizona to spend the day and a bit of tomorrow with Marsha of Always Writes. I imagine there will be a photo or two. Just guessing. 🙂 It’s been a long day dealing with financials to do with my parents’ estate. The bank has been particularly annoying despite my parents having a trust, but even with lots of prior planning, the steps you have to go through are long and often tedious. I’m looking forward to the little break.

    You couldn’t find anyone better to spend time with, Janet. Have a fantastic time together, and say hi from me.

    No smoke on the water or fire in the sky is a blessing janet.
    I love looking over older photos too 🙂
    (thanks for the shout out 👍😃❤)

    Beautiful photo. Ah – Prescott – I have been there many times.

  4. Thumbs up, so I’ll call this Subtle Tuesday. Safe drive to Prescott … and hi to Marsha.

  5. Yes to the beautiful wildflowers and no to the annoying bank. Safe travel and good conversation.

  6. Lupine? One of my mountain favorites. That’s a lovely view. Have a wonderful time visiting your friend!

    Have fun with Marsha 😀 😀 Get lots of photos.

  8. Sorry to hear how tedious everything is being, even with all of the planning your parents put into it. Loved your picture!

  9. Are we also going to see you next week Janet? What a beautiful image of the lavender. I love that daily photo memory, too. Hug Marsha for me!

  10. Good luck on working with the accountants and bean counters.

  11. Marsha says:

    Love all the sweet comments from people. It was great having you, Janet. We got some great photos. I’m just working on my PPAC post, trying to limit myself. 🙂

    • I had some photos from today’s walk that didn’t turn out. I must have moved the phone too quickly. But there are plenty more and such a good time (and good company and good food.)

      • Marsha says:

        I have some of you that I should send you. They turned out great. Did you get the ones that Vince took? That was a great time. I look forward to many more. 🙂 Since we are coming down to Scottsdale after my appointment on the 8th to stay a few days, we could still do Schmooze if you are up to it.

      • I have one of the two Vince took at Founding Fathers in my post today and would love it if you sent me the ones you have. I’d be up for Schmooze too and for our next adventure.

      • Marsha says:

        Sounds good. We can talk about a time when we see each other or text a good time. 🙂

  12. Lovely shot, Janet. We usually have a lot of lupine up this way. We’ll see what the fires left us once the forest reopens. Happy to hear you could take a much-needed break! 🌞

    • I love lupine as well. Sounds like lots of fires again this year and then the terrible flooding in Yellowstone. The break was definitely needed but it’s back to work after this weekend. 🙂

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
