Seasons and Treasures

Welcome! - Today I'll be participating in 2 Memes:

TUESDAY'S TREASURES hosted by Tom (The Backroads Traveller) and a brand new meme:

SEASONS hosted by Jesh (St. Germains Blog). - I hope you will check them both out.


First up for my Tuesday's Treasures shot:


I spotted these lamps on the side of a building in Weston, OR and just had to stop and take a picture of them.  I don't think they work anymore but in their time I'm sure they were a real "treasure" of beauty.  Even now they still look pretty cool.

Now here is my entry for the Seasons meme:



Yesterday I took a very long walk and on the way home I spotted this tree starting to bud and bloom.  I had to take a picture...spring is just around the corner. 

May you enjoy all the "treasures" and "seasons" in your life. - Have a great day.

  24. i love those antique-ish lanterns ... so cool!! i love style such as that.

    trying to recall where you are, you are in Walla Walla, that is Texas, or that Kansas ... my headache is working on my brain. i will google it. i am shocked you have not visited more in Washington. i loved it there. we had a both in Oregon and Washington. can't wait to go again. that was August 2015. such an amazing area of the US. no more month long trips for a while. just weekends getaways, if the hubby has off. we will see??! things changed, but change is good. have a great week, thank you for stopping by, i enjoy your visits because you are one who gets me to chatting, i love talking, my hubby is not a talker, he is so quiet lately, stress at work. i appreciate the friendly times we bloggy friends share. so special.

  27. Your "almost" spring photo is so lovely to me today. We are in the middle of a winter ice and snow storm. Buses cancelled, many business closed. People are stocking up on things just in case we lose power. I think Spring is a ways away for us just yet!

  28. Wow, Ida--Spring begins early where you live! We've had some nice days on the front range of Colorado but it has also snowed a few days after we were in the high 60's. True spring does not arrive here till almost June!
