Rhody

We are in the week of our annual Rhododendron Festival. A tricycle race on Wednesday, run by my Sunrise Rotary. The Bed Race, the Pet Parade. Today is the Rhody Run, but I wore my feet out yesterday, with the Running of the Balls (one of our big Rotary fundraisers) and then the Rhody Parade. I walked to Monroe Street at 9:30 am and was not done until 3:00 pm. My phone went dead, but another person’s recorded 16,000 steps. I iced my feet when I got home, up on pillows!

And the local rhododendrons are gorgeous. Are they narcissists? Or just joyful?

door into spring

This is for Norm2.0’s Thursday doors: my front door this past Saturday. It was so gorgeous and the plum flowers opened and opened.

Prayers for a friend of mine, who called in the night, and was in the emergency room last night. All healing thoughts, prayers, denominations accepted…. with grateful thanks.

windows

For the Daily Prompt: identical.

I suppose the two windows on either side of the big one aren’t identical, but they are certainly a pair. This set of windows is part of why I chose this house. The windows face due south and living room gets sun when we have sun. In the winter the sun will hit the rainbow catcher. It is filled with water and rainbows are thrown all over the room. The ficus is from my parents, a bonsai. I have no idea how old it is, but I repotted it last year, because it was root bound.

Saturday I cooked most of the day and got ready for the dinner. We don’t always have spring sun so looking out the windows made me long to go outside! What a glorious day, with my plums blooming! But the dinner was a delight as well and there will be more sunny days.
