after and fuggish

thank you all,
i had a lovely birthday, 
beginning with a phone call just after 6 am. 
the day was overcast, but it was fine
a message came from aimee giving me permission 
(she wasn't the only one!)
the little back door garden had a surprise. 
blossoming on my birthday
today it's beginning to look more like winter, but it's just fog
a foggy, fuggy day at work
no matter
 yesterday was like this
calls from my kids, with *mail* coming today
and family, and friends checked in.
~~~
the cave of forgotten dreams was amazing
the artist(s) could draw. 20,000 to 30,000 years ago
lines were made with mastery.
they were rich, beautiful,
beautiful.
the 3-d glasses were not so fun. 
but i'm glad i went.

Glad you enjoyed your birthday Velma. I had to look twice at the top photo. At first I thought it was a beautiful piece of handmade paper.

Barry said...

V- glad you had a good day for your birthday. I loved the dark reflective pool in the first photo - the branches of the trees on the black glassy background is special; and the sweet flower in such trying weather - a great gift. Go well. B

Velma said...

Ingrid said...

Velma, I also saw the Cave of Forgotten Dreams with a friend 3 weeks ago - phenomenal. Not sure what to make of the biosphere and albino aligators - weird! 3D glasses are awful. Belated Birthday Wishes.

Velma said...
