William's Blog...with a smile!


I was smelling the flowers

I woke up about 6 am.  I was smelling the flowers.

They were pretty and the fragrance was strong.

But when I looked out the window...it was brown and grey.

There were no flowers or leaves on the trees.

No Hummingbirds or butterfly's


No, the world has no ended.


I will weather the changes until the flowers and leaves return

It's still green here and I still have a few blooms.  But I'm already looking forward to spring.

Nice poem for a grey November day.  I drove over the Cascades in the rain from the Willamette Valley, but when we hit Central Oregon, the sun came out and we knew we were home.

Dear William,

No spring flowers, but I still have a few others.

A subtle reminder that every season has its beginning and end. Looking forward for more good seasons to come.

When I first saw the flowers before reading your words, I thought Minnesota had a growing season quite different than our's here in in Sacramento.

Morning William

Spring is my favorite time of the year. The colors of renewed growth, the light southerly winds breaking up the bitter cold of winter, wonderful.

Good morning William. As much as I enjoyed the Florida weather, I am happy to be back in the 4 season cycle in Chicago. Enjoy your day!

I think that we all  northern people have a dream like this when the weather is not so nice.

Leaves are pretty much gone...or almost...green to brown....and soon...the S word will blanket the landscape.

Good morning William. The flowers are all gone here too. Your picture is lovely.

The flowers are long gone but we still have leaves on the trees. Soon all the trees will shed their leaves & summer will be but a memory
