Sunday Scenes, – June 3, 2012

Straight Out of the Camera Sunday

It has been productive for me, as far as books go. I have three new books to add to my huge pile of to-reads. I am not concerned, I am getting through the stack of to-reads rather well. I devote specific periods of time to reading, in order to accomplish my perusal endeavors.

I purchased:

Prague Winter, by Madeleine Albright

The First Lady of Fleet Street, by Eilat Negev

Alice’s Piano: The Life of Alice Herz-Sommer, by Melissa Mueller This was published in March of this year, and at 107 years old, she is the oldest living Holocaust Survivor. Her story should be quite compelling and inspiring.

I finished reading 97 Orchard and will review it within the next couple of days.

Out and About

I spent a day at Descanso Gardens, this past weekend, to attend the Cherry Blossom Festival.

I rained in the morning, but the sun came out at about noon. My morning photos are rather dismal looking, what with the overcast skies. My afternoon photos were much more enhanced due to the sun.

The above photo with cherry trees in the background, was taken in the cloud-covered morning.

We were walking through one of the many paths when the sun came out, and the trees were almost bare looking, but getting some buds on them.

I loved the tones of these lovelies.

Why not go on over to Our World Tuesday and browse through the many photos on the meme.

More photographs of the gardens will follow throughout the next few days.
