  4. Hello Elizabeth:
    What a gloriously technicolour post! It is truly amazing how much flower power there is on urban streets, occupying all kinds of tiny nooks and crannies and, of course, never failing to gladden the hearts of passers-by who notice them.

    We are delighted to have connected with you as Followers, having been drawn here by the kind comment which you left for us.We look forward to many happy returns!

  5. I love those photos, Elizabeth♥
    Your view for all things is fantastic!
    Enjoy your week!

  6. When I miss New York, I always come here :)
    Soon, I hope we can walk these streets together.
    In the meantime, I'm going on a photographic safari of my Lisbon, today ;)
    I'll try to enjoy it through your eyes. Kisses!


I look forward to hearing from you!
