Under The Lilacs

To be a heroine from a Louisa May Alcott book, Yren would have to be dressed very differently than this. But like Louisa and her ladylike characters, we love lilacs in the spring and we've been waiting impatiently for our free time to coincide with some pleasant weather so that we could enjoy them and take pictures.

So here is my darling under the lilacs, where who would not like to be this sunny day? If you're so inclined, you can read Louisa's book Under the Lilacs free on Project Gutenberg, preferably with an iPad so that you can read it properly under real, actual lilacs. And if you have none of your own, you are welcome to join us under ours. The scent is heavenly!

Renny's Famous Feet

Hey look--Marina's work just got another cover!

Not really. It's just me playing with Photofunia again. But it sure makes a convincing Esquire cover, though.

Yren at Times Square

Springtime in Our Town: Sunny and beautiful all week long, then rain rain rain all weekend! Yren and I have not been able to go out for photosessions among the buttercups, poppies, and lilacs. We actually tried the lilacs after lunch, but they were still dripping and bowed down with rain.

So instead we followed our forum friends to Photofunia (thank you, Eiko!) and played with the pictures we do have to visit Times Square and anywhere else our imaginations can take us. If only there was a Photofunia pic with lilacs!
