Thanks for the beautiful flowers.

What a beautiful wish after such a senseless tragedy. Lovely shots.
December 17, 2012 at 08:50 PM
Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could all live in harmony.
The coffees on my post were cappuccinos. I always have half strength as I find coffee too biter otherwise. so I usually get a different pattern to Bill so they know which is which.
December 17, 2012 at 09:09 PM
What stunning arrangements they are as well. I loved your recent comment on my photography blog about Spock! guess what my husband has also started to take a bit more interest, if you cannot beat them join them maybe. :)

Beautiful blooms. Love the dewdrops!
December 18, 2012 at 05:22 AM
A bleak morning here, Sallie; rainy and cold, but not cold enough for snow. We are breaking records for no snowfall in December and 40/50 degree temps. Odd weather. At any rate, your flowers whisk the bleakness away and your words give us something to hold on to.

Such beautiful photography! It has been a very sad time here lately since the tragedy in CT, and seeing beauty is soothing to the soul,

Gorgeous! Those flowers do the heart good, such a wonderful variety.

Good thoughts going on there Sallie. To answer your question, bird ringers/banders have to train through thousands of individuals and many, many species before they are allowed to work alone. While undergoing training they are supervised by a bander/ringer with many years experience.

Gorgeous photos and a wish worth remembering and following :)

I wish that too, Sallie. These are so pretty and well captured. It saddens me that the world has so much beauty, yet evil persists. Hard to comprehend...

Gorgeous photos, perfect for wintertime like this and events that can't be understood.
December 18, 2012 at 06:23 PM
Thank you for sharing these with us.
December 18, 2012 at 06:55 PM
Pretty flowers and lovely words... I am wishing for the same.
December 18, 2012 at 08:47 PM
Beautiful flower captures, lovely words. I wish the same. I can't even fathom the events of the past few days.
December 18, 2012 at 10:00 PM
even though I adore COLOUR, the first collage with the similarly toned soft pastels is really beautiful

A delight for the eyes !

Glad there are still beautiful flowers to see during Winter. Happy holidays!

Hi there - we live in strange days - some of the things hold dear to their hearts seem unbelievable. I hope that you and your government can find a way to make things better for the kids of your country.
Here in Australia we had a similar incident a few years ago - assault style weapons were banned within weeks. It seems like a reasonable first move.

a wish for the world
I also saw the news piece you mentioned on my post
I also saw another where someone suggested 26 acts of kindness, one for each of the dead

Hi Sallie, Beautiful flowers and a worthy sentiment. It's too bad people have such a propensity for doing the wrong thing...
Blessings to you for Christmas!
December 19, 2012 at 09:06 AM
all beautiful flowers. But...my favourite is the blue waterlily. Is it from yoru trip?
December 19, 2012 at 12:37 PM
I liked seeing those fragile flowers on a bitter cold night in CO. It will go into minus digits tonight. We finally got snow - over 2' in Breckenridge in the last few days. I think winter has finally arrived! Happy Holidays to you.

The flowers are gorgeous. Yellow roses always make me think of my mother who loved them so much.
