Courtyard Flora in December

Every year, when I come to San Jose, I am delighted to see flowers. It amuses my sister to see me taking pictures of what seem to her to be unexceptional blooms, but when you come from a snowscape, greenery and blossoms are a lovely contrast.

Today I was playing with the macro lens on my Olympus camera in the courtyard of the condo where I live, and these are the results.

      • I simply adore ET! In the ’80’s I had a small ET doll sort of thing that ‘rode shotgun’ with me in my car. I always hoped ET type beings would come visit, dreamer that I am. Movie ET was adorable I thought and I still sob when he leaves Earth, yes, even in the commercial now!

        • It’s one of my favourites, too. If aliens do come from another planet, I hope they are like ET.

          I also agree with you about the Brickyard courtyard feeling like “home”. Every time I come back here, I get that sense of belonging. Even knowing that it isn’t perfect, I still love looking out of my living room at the garden.
