mom's yard


my mom just e-mailed me a pic of her yard ... taken yesterday ... isn't it lovely? i love the various shades of light and dark ... and the brilliant colour mixed with muted ones ...

just sharing ...

i'm still sniffling and coughing with my cold ... atleast i didn't succumb to it on my little trip!

I hope you're over that cold very, very soon.

Beautiful!

Colds are so miserable. I feel for ya, and hope you're feeling better soon! I have found that TheraFlu is a great help when I have a cold. Some people can't stand the taste, but I don't think it's *that* bad, and if I drink a mug of it every four hours or so when I have a cold, it really helps quite a bit.

Oy. Take care of yourself. Poor thing, you have my sympathies. (Hugs -- at a distance).

That really is a lovely picture, such a little lift that must've given you. :)
