A friend returns to the garden.


Finally, a sunny day.  Quite cold, but sunny.  And the long-awaited blooms have returned to the dress the bare magnolia.  I wanted to share the moments, so here they are, in pics. I hope you like them, and I also hope to return with lots more pics, very soon.

Namaste from Amras.

Today I am too uncomfortable to write very much, the old symptoms are throwing tantrums at me again. Never mind. I am dedicating todays pics to those who never get to to experience the sight of snow, and to the featured photographers.  Hope to be back soon. From the hilly Midlands of Old Blighty, Namaste from Amras.

Waiting for the rains of spring.

snowtime 025“I think that deserves a biscuit or two”.


It’s so good of my family to take these pictures for me to post. They do what I can’t, so that I may then do what I can. Thank you so much A & L. Tonight I have introduced our family’s chief representative from the animal kingdoms, our own “Caribbean Emily” or Emmie.  She was rescued by Amanda in 2010, just days from death; and look at her now.

Thank you to all visitors for your likes, and comments. You’ve given me so much validation for my efforts here, and I thank the benevolent cosmos for putting us all together on this beautiful globe at such an exciting time. Namaste from Amras.
