Valentine Friday


1. Skywatch: Yesterday's sunset turned red before it dimmed to darkness. I grabbed a cell phone picture of it while waiting at a stop light.


2. Black and White Weekend: This is Lynn's cat who passed away today at the ago of 18. I took the picture in 2011.

Lynn, my older daughter, has had a rough week. Her friend Timmy died early Wednesday morning. He used to live next door to her and helped her out after she had wrist surgery. She visited him in the hospital while he was ill and then in hospice.

3. Friday Bliss and Floral Friday: I made an arrangement of flower arrangements. These were in a store. They seemed overpriced to me for something so ephemeral.


4. We had an early Valentine's dinner at John's Family Restaurant. Yum!

5. Weekend Reflections: I didn't have a reflection shot from this week so I went back in my files to find one from a previous February. (I keep digital files in folders by month.)

The location is Cooks Creek Arboretum in Bridgewater.

  1. A lovely series of photos but I am so sorry to hear of Lynn's very sad week. Two losses in such a short space of time is never easy and I send her a hug.

  4. I enjoy your photos, and am glad to know how you organize your files. My computer kind of came (second hand) with a strange system, places are grouped together and maybe several months will all get put into a folder. So sorry to hear of Lynn's double whammy this week. That's tough, and they both were special for her.
