LIFE IN BLACK AND WHITE

Imagine life in black and white The whitest day The blackest night…
I sit upon my balcony with colour all around me scarlet red geraniums hydrangeas pink and blue golden yellow roses their fragrance wafts upon the breeze grateful that my eyes can see Mother nature’s tapestry The sky her hue an azure blue melts into the sea where silvery diamonds shine and glisten her ebb and flow meet on the sand I close my eyes ~ lie back and listen as two young lovers stroll hand in hand On this dazzling fragrant Summers day I pray ~ don’t take the colours away
Imagine life in black and white The whitest day The blackest night…

An absolute feast of colour, Ann! What a delight to read. Two blessings I am most grateful for are nature's beauty and the eyesight to soak it in. Love your new avatar too. Congratulations and blessings, my friend ~ John

I too am so grateful for those two blessings and I thank you dear John for your lovely words my friend. My new avatar was taken onboard the sister train of the Orient Express, which I rode with my sweet granddaughter ~ we are hoping to eventually ride upon the Orient Express in the very near future, hoping to go from London to Venice so watch this space, haha...

Thank you so much Sam for your congrats, I always love to hear your comments my friend ~ yes I agree about the Hydrangeas I especially love the blue ones, they are truly gorgeous and also look so pretty when dried in an arrangement. With kindest thoughts Ann xx
