Spotting beauty around me.

With all the things happening around us in the world sometimes I wonder if people are interested in seeing beautiful photos of flowers, blue seas and skies that I post in my blog.But really I can't stand this ugliness in the world either being the toll of deaths in Nepal after that huge earthquake or the sickening massacre of a little child by her own parent in my own country.
Seeing the beauty around me simply makes me forget for a while the ugliness and appreciate the good things I have in my life. And all of us should try this.
These last weeks when I go to school I see and smell this beautiful wisteria.
 The Art teacher at school makes beautiful paper poppies for a Mother's Day celebration at school.
 Aren't her papers lovely?
 I bought a couple of small plants for my balcony.

The sunsets lately are gorgeous!

 A pupil treated us to these lovely sweets for her birthday.
My crafty group friends and I had coffee one beautiful afternoon.
 At last a cold coffee!
 Hubby and I walked the seafront many a time.
Barca was always with us!
 And we met lots of nice dogs like our friend Chech!He is huge but he is such a good boy!
More about last week and especially the long weekend and May 1st in the next blogpost.

oh my that is a big dog!! He looks quite friendly! I like thinking of the little and good things in life as well. Seeing a pretty flower is sometimes enough for one to get through the day knowing that all is well.

Οι φωτογραφίες σου είναι άκρως επάξιες του τίτλου της ανάρτησής σου και δεν θα μπορούσα να συμφωνώ περισσότερο με την εισαγωγή σου.

oh, I agree with you. with all the sadness that goes on in our lives and around the world, it's so good to know you can take a break from it all and appreciate the beauty of far away landscapes, details, moments in a friend's life, .. thank you for sharing them with us!
I LOVE wisterias, I simply have to plant some in our garden, they're one of my favourite flowers. they're all blooming here too, what a sight!
how sweet is Barca! and what a big boy you met, he looks so funny!

I quite agree. I blog to stay away from all the bad news in the world!

It's always lovely to see photos of the best Mother Nature has to offer us.

I, for on, really enjoyed the picture of the wisteria and the photos of the sea: they put a smile on my face this morning as I was drinking my morning tea!
