A View of Something Pretty

This morning I thought today was the letter W on ABC Wednesday. What shall I do? I wondered.

Then it dawned on me that today is December 7 -- Pearl Harbor Day. I can repost the War! piece I wrote several years ago about my parents's experiences on that day in 1941. Yes, that's what I would do later when I had a chance.

An hour ago was my opportunity to do my post. Whoops. It's actually the letter V. I thought vice, viceroy, vicious, villain, vile and all kinds of v words that had me thinking of our new President-elect and his, shudder, proposed advisors and cabinet secretaries. Vleahhh.

I decided you would prefer to see something pretty. So, here you go—the Mama's flowers in the front of the house. They are in bloom this moment. I don't know how long they'll last. It's starting to get quite chilly.

  1. Pretty is nice. My shot of flowers this days come from indoors from store-brought flowers. Winter in Colorado killed tha very few flowers I had. Yup, it's the season's fault.

  2. Your Mama's flowers are just perfect for today. Today is a somber day but we also need to see beauty.

    1. Molly especially likes the white jade flowers. She almost always stops to rub her head on the jade before she goes inside.

  8. I don;t know what happened with my comment... enjoy your Mama's flowers, and hope you get rain - we got it this morning! And I wonder what your Mama would have thought about what's happening now ...she seemed one with a big heart ... your turn:):)

    1. Thanks, Jesh. I think the Mama would've been very happy and surprised that the flowers are in bloom. That was one thing about the Mama. She had hopes that something would happen, such as flowers bloom in late fall as if it was spring, and was always very surprised and happy when it actually did.
