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.

present

For the Daily Prompt: present.

Our Rhody Fest is in May, with the Grand Parade, tricycle races, the bed race, and my Sunrise Rotary “Running of the Balls”. But I took this photograph two days ago: this rhododendron is not going to wait for May. No time like the present and in full bloom in February and gorgeous. A touch, a promise, harbinger of spring!
