We may not like our new normal, that of being under lock down, but right now it’s a necessity. I don’t know about anyone else, but I find that seeing something beautiful brings a smile to my face, hearing/seeing something funny makes me laugh and reading of a good deed fills my soul. I need all these feelings to get through the next few weeks or months.
So, I’m urging all bloggers to post beauty, funny stories or jokes or feel good adventures. Taking my own advice, I’m posting floral shots of a trip to Ironstone Vineyards in April, 2017.

Thanks for your words…..they are comforting. And you’re right….beauty helps…Elaine and I marvel as we take walks each morning ( especially our sanity right now) at all the loveliness we see.
Thanks Lynn! Keep enjoying your walks and stay well!!
It’s funny how we can become dark in what are potentially dark times. It’s not like we are living in the middle of Fortress Europe during WW2, or war torn countries in the Middle East, Asia, or Africa. We aren’t living under a dictatorship. But, we are living in the face of a potential death – the death of a loved one, ourselves, anyone. It makes me think of the 1918 flu epidemic, too. It is the unknown that is most unnerving. There is a certain level of inevitability here as we are all mortal. But, while we are alive, you are right: beauty, humor, deeds which inspire all remind us of the joy in being alive. Thanks for the lovely flowers!
You’re welcome ~N! Potential is what we make it: negative or positive. Let’s live in the positive!

Ain’t that the truth!
Beautiful shots, Anne!! Yes, we definitely need to read less about you-know-what and spend this time at home being creative and bringing cheerful images to others. These images definitively do so!
Take care, Anne!
Thanks Mercedes! I’m looking forward to seeing more of your beautiful posts.
Hi, Anne — I’m a little behind on posts (been focusing on my Etsy Shop), but LOVE this idea! It’s a great way to focus on the positive! Thanks for the suggestion……stay tuned.
Hope you are well!
Thanks Donna! I’m looking forward to seeing some of your photos!
