    Today’s last photo was taken as our cruise ship was going up a small arm of the sea towards the Sawyer Glacier….and a Holland America ship was preceding us.  Our ship was larger than the one in this photo, but both ships are dwarfed by the surrounding mountains and scenery that left you with a sore neck trying to see all the beauty around you as we moved up into the narrow arm of the sea.

    Good Morning Marge.  Yesterday I saw a documentary on Ireland and I saw many places I’d never see even if I went back to visit, but also some of the places we BOTH went to…including Blarney Castle from the air and up close!  WOW!  What memories and what a place to visit!

    Morning

    We’ve been having lots of rain and storms everyday but mostly at night.  We now have a flash flood warning out.  Probably come July we will be wishing for some of this precip.

    Oh Cliff, your winter scenes are beautiful and unfortunately we will be seeing them again in the not too distant future.  Loved the rest of your pictures as well.

    Sharon, nice flowers, what few I had blooming are all beat down now from the storms we’ve been having.  One year I had a Mourning Dove make a nest in a hanging basket I had by the patio door.  She never moved when we went in and out the door either.  Killed the plant but got to see the babies from egg to leaving the nest.  Always enjoy your sky pictures.

    Morning Alecia and Marnee.  Nice pictures as well.

    This is a few more of the “greenery” from the Japanese Gardens.

    Good morning everyone…

    Alecia, I love the clay-colored sparrow… and that tree that the dove is in came down a few years ago in the high winds… they left this 12 ft tall stump.. no idea why…but the doves love it..

    Marnee, nice shot of the moon..lolol…and love the purple flowers. Birds and big bird too..

    Cliff, yep I was just thinking about the snow … keep wondering if I am going to get all the things done I want too before it comes again…Love the gardens…such pretty flowers. What neat totem poles. And the glacier.. always amazes me.

    Marge, I love castles… great pic…thanks for sharing it with us.

    Judy, oh my how lovely…so well kept… love seeing it..

    Thanks for the great pictures.  Snow scenes I always enjoy anytime, pretty flowers, and Alaska and Ireland pictures are nice, too.

    Thanks for all the bird pictures.  Mourning doves we have here, but they are skiddish and scare easily.  Noisy when flying off, too.

    Pretty pictures of Japanese gardens.  Sky pictures are always interesting with the clouds and the moon, too.

    Always enjoy travel on this site from my chair!
