Moonlight & Roses

Here we are already in May and it's the time of roses and beautiful skies.

I'm sorry I haven't been around much but sometimes life can be so busy that one doesn't have time to write about it.  And I have many new photos to add here.

 I'm so glad we had ideal conditions for photographing the moon last night.
The supermoon was brilliant in a clear sky here in our part of Tenerife.

Here's another one from May 3rd when I looked out my window and saw the moon rising in the east from a sea of pink clouds just after sunset.

And our garden is full of roses and white trumpet vines.

We have wonderful weather here now.  
It seems we have suddenly jumped out of spring and into summer.

I hope you are enjoying these early days of May, the month of flowers.

Thanks for dropping by and I hope you'll come again soon! Bye for now.

Sharon! Do you remember me? I am Lorna from Southern California, but this time with a new personal blog.

It is good to see your photographs and hear about your life there.

Much has happened, but I guess mostly it is time passing. I hope you are well and welcome you to my new blog, A Muse In Time.
