Love, beauty, and charm

Aren’t these orchids pretty?  I photographed them at Home Depot sometime ago.  For the price and variety, Home Depot is the place to buy plants.

There is so much negativity in the news these days, what with the homeless people and the wars being fought around the world, it is refreshing to look at beautiful pictures.

I have been rearranging some of the oil paintings that I purchased from my friends, Suzanne and Flo.  I enjoy seeing their art above family photos:

We also enjoy listening to beautiful music.  Next Sunday, we’ll get to hear someone play Spanish guitar music at the Blaisdell Concert Hall.  The following Sunday, we will hear a pianist perform a Beethoven piano concerto.

This is the Hawaii Symphony Orchestra at the Blaisdell:

And here is what makes Hawaii a paradise (photo by Ted Trimmer):

Above all, my loving family last April:

I believe in a life full of love, beauty and charm!

    Love the orchids. I buy one everytime I can and have managed to get a couple of them to rebloom.

    There’s a saying ‘change is as good as good as a rest’ – your art rearranging is proof positive.
    It’s good to hear you decided to continue with your musical outings.
