Thanks to all of you who have commented on my recent posts. As I stood watching the clouds Sunday morning, I thought that what I saw was unusual and I needed to get my camera. I loved seeing the ravens flying high on the wind and I believed I saw a lenticular cloud in the process of forming. It's thanks to my blogger friend Upupaepops that I even know what a lenticular cloud looks like. If you like nature, hiking, photography, flora and fauna, I strongly recommend you click here: Meandering Washington and visit her blog. You will enjoy it and you may learn something too. I certainly have.
This Tuesday, I want to share one of the early photos of my mother that I have been looking for and finally found. I have an enlarged photo from the same trip to the photographer's studio that I haven't found yet. But it is here somewhere.
My mother as a young woman, sometime in the 1920s or early 1930s.
And this is her favorite vase. She really liked this vase a lot. It is very unusual and prettier empty than when filled with water because water dulls the beautiful colors. As usual, I have no idea what this kind of glass processing is called. It seems to be a layer of glass upon another layer of glass somehow. It is fragile and I am glad I managed to transport it across one big ocean and one large continent, so that I can enjoy it here. Most recently I placed a bouquet of flowers Rachael gave me in the vase and thought about my mother as I enjoyed them.
