Very pretty!

By the way, I like your new picture in the header. I love how the colors seem to bleed from the sky down into the water below.

Ah, springtime! Lovely! Juliet, today I put up a vintage picture of bird eggs with a key to identifying them - I thought of you and how you might enjoy it.

Great! We are big with them too - I think Rhody is our Washington State flower.

Que pena que essa especie não é encontrada aqui no Brasil devido a temperatura, são muito lindas!
