Lavender Phlox and Glass


Today we have some much needed rain...
...but a few days ago I picked a few blossoms
 and played with my camera and some colored glass...
...again. :)














...so pretty.

Tomorrow Dan and Kate will both arrive for the weekend.
 It will be so nice to have the four of us under the same roof again...
...even if it's only for a night or two!

Hope the sun comes out so we can play outside a bit!
:)
Happy Weekend to you .

I always enjoy your glass bottle vignettes. Each photograph is a charming still life of light, shadows, texture, composition....
