a few clouds drift by

Currently my skies
look as if we finally

might get some ‘wet stuph’

February was
the last time I remember

anticipating

precipitation
so my fingers remain crossed …

hopeful for drizzles.

Beverly asked us to visit someone new and add a link to introduce someone in this week’s post … but, of course, last week was my very first Pink Saturday … so everyone was new to me.  I’d like to thank all those who visited my Pink Saturday post here Happily Retired Gal last week.  Methinks 59 comments on a single post might be a record for me and I appreciate being welcomed in such a wonderful manner.

To those who asked what program I use to create and experiment with my mosaics, it’s Photoshop Elements 6.  I’ve taken some classes at the local Adult School the past year or so and enjoy playing with possibilities often.

I did my best to visit as many participants as possible last week and plan to do likewise this week.  I hope you enjoy my pink roses today and wish you a wonderful weekend ;–)
