Happy Valentine's Day

Flowers for all my blog friends!

I believe I mentioned I have been going through my photos.  Over the last month, I have deleted several thousands and am freeing up space for new pictures!  I am also taking the time to organize them a bit; I'm renaming them and tagging them to make it easier to find pictures in the future.  It has been fun to look through all the old pictures.  I have also enjoyed all the green and growing pictures.  This week we here in Denver are supposed to have highs in the 60s everyday.  I am looking forward to that! 

On a slightly different note, I recently upgraded my flickr account to "pro" but haven't known quite what to use it for.  This evening, I was enjoying the soundtrack of Il Postino while I had a slideshow going of garden pictures, and I thought, "Hey, I should download some of these to my flickr account."  I thought you might enjoy seeing them too. Here are some pictures from 2008 in my mother-in-law's garden. I will add a set of pictures from my own garden soon, too.

In regards to the Il Postino soundtrack:  The first half of the soundtrack is poetry; the musical half of the may be my all time favorite soundtrack.  I can just imagine sipping a drink at a french or italian cafe while reading a book, and of course there would be such music in the background.

Thank you for the flowers -- they're beautiful. You're so motivated! Cleaning out photos is so much work -- I need to do it too.

Happy Valentine's Day!

I use flickr as a photo back up, back up to my external hard drive.

Thank-you for the flowers! If you lived closer I'd share my chocolates with you. Yummy carmel filled kisses!
Hope you had a great day!
Enjoy the weather! I'm enjoying the sunshine but it's cold here.

Your garden photos are beautiful! I loved Il Postino - i need to download the soundtrack. Thanks for the tip - i'm always looking for something new to listen to. Love how fresh your living room looks - i don't have a fireplace and i want one so badly - mainly so i can decorate the mantle! Hope your Valentine's was wonderful.

Beautiful flowers!
Time flies when I'm going through my old photos. Before I know it hours and hours have passed, but it sure is fun!
