Sunday.  The start of a new week, new possibilities.  So much to do, so little time.  (more…)

Dreaming of the Jersey shore…

Across the lonely beach we flit,
One little sandpiper and I;
And fast I gather, bit by bit,
The scattered driftwood, bleached and dry.
The wild waves reach their hands for it,
The wild wind raves, the tide runs high,
As up and down the beach we flit–
One little sandpiper and I

I went to Trader Joe’s today, located in an upscale mall not far from our house. The landscaping at the mall is always lovely but today it was particularly outstanding, with spectacular flower, leaf and plant colors everywhere.  And it wasn’t just the colors.  The fragrance of the sweet alyssum was astonishing.  Fortunately, I had my iPad in my purse, so I wandered around for some time taking pictures, shopping forgotten, encountering a number of others enjoying the display.  Fall is certainly going out with a bang here!!

I hope the pictures of these flowers bring joy to your heart and start your weekend off with beauty.  And I how I wish I had these landscapers!!
