    • Re: lovely flowers!

      You’re welcome, Kerry. I’m so glad you liked them.

      Thanks for posting a picture of a jacaranda tree today. We’ve got some blooming in our neighborhood, but none as pretty as that picture.

  1. I’m loving the bird metaphors. And Lamott’s book is quite great.

    Oh, and I can’t make any promises, but I’m going to do my best to show up late to PFL this week. It’s still happening, right?

  2. Thanks for the bouquet!

    How lovely to log onto my LJ friends page and see your collection of New England flowers. Yes, it’s pretty in the Northeast this time of year, but don’t forget what we put up with in the winter to get here.

    Good luck with your goals this week!

    • Re: Thanks for the bouquet!

      I remember being there in early February — what a contrast! I’ve got a romantic notion of New England, because we mostly travel there in spring and fall.

      Good luck with your goals, too. We’re in the home stretch. Maybe we should extend our project? I should ask…

  3. Gorgeous flowers!

    It sounds like a good trip, but I’m glad you’re home safe and sound. Those crazy northeasterners–you never know what they’ll do next! 😉

  5. oh wow! those are gorgeous!

    left to right, top to bottom:
    Iris, allium, columbine, poppy, lilac, tulip, clematis, columbine…I think the next is a petunia? and I don’t know what the last one is. lol…

  6. Beautiful flowers! I’ve never been there, but from the pictures I’ve seen, I would love, love, love to spend some time in that area. Especially around autumn. And you’re right, it is very much the antithesis of California. And that ain’t a bad thing.

    Glad you got to spend some time with the family and that your spirits are energized again! Welcome back!

    And who binds people up only to inject them with a blue liquid? That’s just bizarre. lol….

    • I have a feeling you’d really love New England.

      Thanks for the warm welcome home. It’s good to be back — especially away from those dangerous blue liquid injectors. Um, weird?

      • I have a feeling you’d really love New England.

        I’ve got a feeling that I would as well!!! The pictures I’ve seen are amazing. Absolutely amazing.

        It’s good to be back — especially away from those dangerous blue liquid injectors. Um, weird?

        LOL… very, very weird. Wouldn’t it just be easier to snatch the person and hold them for ransom? Or is that just a west-coast style? lol….

  8. Imagine! outlaws and inlaws living side by side.
    I L-O-V-E New England and can’t wait to visit you when you get your cottage there :]

    Thanks for sharing the photos of the flowers. They are beyoootiful. I’m so glad you had time to reflect and energize your spirit.

  10. Glad you made it home safe and sound, and without any blue liquid flowing in your veins!

    Thanks for sharing those gorgeous flowers. So lush.

    Sending good thoughts your way as you wrestle with the pimply carcasses (great image there)!

  11. Oh! Nice revision metaphor: “I’ve been plucking those birds down to their goose-pimply carcasses and rearranging their feathers.”

  12. I guess each region has its own beauty. That’s one reason vacations are so nice. I find everywhere I go that each place has its own share of strange happenings, too. Makes a good subject for books. heh heh
