Fridays Are Golden

The rains have stopped for a while and the streams are reducing their swells.  Most roads are open again except for those with rock slides.  Our weather is still very labile but today is beautiful and for that we are indeed thankful.
I thought I would share another couple of photographs from the Biltmore Estate.  I just cannot stop taking pictures when we are there.
Some of the tulips in the walled garden.

Wisteria, looking more like the deep South than NC.

The dog photographs once again show Lucy's version of sharing.
I just take most of the bed.  Ellie can have what's leftover.

Somehow Ellie doesn't seem to mind being pushed under the chair.
This week's quote about sharing is from The Buddha:
"Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened.  Happiness never decreased by being shared."
So share the happiness this week.  However much you have.

Gorgeous tulips! Love how the picture is framed...

You know, one of the things I love about sleeping on our futon couch is burrowing into the corner - it's just so soothing. Maybe that's how Ellie feels :)

Our weather is quite nasty right now.

Love that shot through the oval and, of course, your beautiful golden girls.

Happy Mother's Day!

That Wisteria is just beautiful. If it grows there it might grow here.
Love how the girls almost share.
Happy Mother's Day.

Ellie seems to find her space no matter the circumstance. Glad to hear your rains have stopped.
