“Light blue is associated with health, healing, tranquility, understanding, and softness.
Dark blue represents knowledge, power, integrity, and seriousness.” From the

Isn't it great ~ the transition from winter to spring is so lovely and dramatic. We've had beautiful days in Asheville, NC, lately ~ it's wonderful! Time to get my boots on and head out for a hike!

Enjoy the weekend ~ and thanks for sharing your part of the world with us!

You keep finding that little bit of snow, don't you? Hopefully that will be the end of it! I like the pictures of the colorful flags and the white flowers on the tree.

Yay for blue skies, huh? We've had some beautiful weather around here and all the dogwoods are in full bloom. Very beautiful, except for one thing... We've been experiencing near scorching temperatures. Highs in the upper 80s for the rest of the week, which is strange because it's usually quite cool here during Holy Week. We call it Blackberry Winter. Well, it's not the case this year.

Loved the pictures, Joe, and always, thank you so much for sharing with us! Take good care of yourself and God bless!

Happy Easter!

How many steps do you have to climb this fire tower? I will be very disappointed if I climbed all the way up and the grinch stole the blue from the sky.

Happy easter.

I love the colourful signs and banner. I had a cute little Easter bunny garden stake that I loved, but he just "died" in the last wind storm after about five years of guarding my veggies. I'm looking for a replacement but just haven't found anything yet. - Margy

Pretty Spring blossoms against your lovely clear blue skies. Hope that's the last of the snow too.
