Mystery Blossoms




A couple of weeks ago on a Sunday morning after breakfast at the Emporium,  I  passed in front of Massarella's Firehouse Pottery (where our lovely dog water bowl is from) and saw these incredibly dreamy blossoms lining their driveway.  Roses they are not as there were no leaves or thorns. Maybe some kind of cherry blossom... though they were small bushes.  Can't you see them in an antique Chinese blue and white vase! What are they???


"Merrily, merrily shall I live now,
Under the blossom that hangs on the bough."

~ William Shakespeare ~

Love your new look! All the new fonts are cool aren’t they.? A chance for new creativity in blogland. I drove by Ojai on Monday...hub and I went to Santa Barbara for anniversary...State street lotsa restarants and closed up shops. Not as nice as the “old days”...
no interesting little shops. went to Summerland, coffee,some cute shops, and then Carpenteria which I kinda fell in love with! I want to live there now, but mucho deniro and certainly not in our price range. Next time I’ll give you a warning and we’ll go to Ojai and meet for lunch. Yes? take care Penny...caw
