    1. Thank you! I fell in love with these flowers the minute I saw them in my local garden/flower shop ~ and today they smiled and I just couldnt resist grabbing a photo or two…or three in this case πŸ˜€

  1. Reblogged this on Visual Venturing and commented:
    Imagine how you would feel if you lost your entire blog due to an error you did not make?? This just happened to wonderful West, who used to post at and is now rebuilding her blog from the ground up.

    For those of you who have, like me, been following West, you know how incredible her images and words and and what a lovely human being she is. So, if you haven’t yet reconnected with her, do so at And if you haven’t yet seen West’s work, do yourself a favor and get in on the action. You’ll love what you see!

    1. Thank you so much Stacy! Such kind words and thoughtful description really touched my heart and encouraged me. TY also for reblogging me ~ thats like building a room onto your virtual blog-cabin for me to stay over!Β  Thank you again very much for thinking of me, making a place for me (Don’t worry, I’m small so I wont take up much room) and helping me get back on my feet …I’m so glad you’re a part of my WP family …btw I’ve already reached 5 POSTS!! yessssss!!

    1. Thank you so much!! πŸ™‚ …A ‘Canna’ you say? I’m embarrassed to admit I did not know what flower this is..but when I saw them I knew I wanted them!! I haven’t seen this particular shade of orange in this type of flower before but somehow it fits it perfectly!

  2. Love, love, LOVE! And, orange is my most favouritestiest colour! πŸ˜‰
    Which is why my new car is Metallic Sunset (closest we could get to orange!)


      1. Well then it fits! At our graduation from high school, we were given special diplomas for our best characteristic. Mine was for my “Engaging Smile”! πŸ˜€


    1. πŸ™‚ Hi Lavinia~ Thank you! Someone mentioned that it is a “Canna…” I’m couldn’t say for sure–I should Google it πŸ™‚ I titled this post Orange Crush– of course after the famous, sugary, Orange soda ❀


  3. Scrumptious west! I can feel the heat and taste the oranges ❀ mandarins are my favourite fruit – a gorgeous splash of zest to start the day! (PS You're really motoring with 5 posts – keep it up πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ )


  4. Hello! I’m venturing over by way of Stacy who shared news of your lost blog posts.
    Oh my!
    These images are stunning and I wish you the best as you move forward with new posts


  5. “lol” I’d have an orange crush, too!
    Just beautiful!
    I know I haven’t been around as much. I’m working on a TV series for HBO starring the most awesome Kim Cattrall, and I am Uber busy. Nonetheless, I’ll be around!


  6. I think we need this on a poster to promote the Syracuse Orange sports teams for the university, West. Vibrant! And that’s on your balcony. What a way to appreciate the day. ❀


    1. Thank you Mark!! “Orange Crush” that might be a great poster for Syracuse… I’m a Seminole!! (I can’t believe I’m showing love for another team!!) But I’m very happy you like these~ beautiful reminders of some of life’s simplest, most perfect gifts ❀


      1. I am a Maryland Terp grad who’s lived in Syracuse for 32 years, West, so I have your Seminoles well-covered from the opponent’s view by now. πŸ™‚ Your football team came to the Carrier Dome this past season, and I took pictures and talked to fans who came up for the game, and every single one of them was a class act. Very impressive. But back to your most perfect gifts. Even more impressive. Wow.


      2. Awww thx Mark!! (blush,blush)

        FSU fans– doing us all proud πŸ™‚ ….until there’s a Gator game…. then everything seems to take a turn for the worse ha! πŸ™‚
