It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

Summer Delights

If we are going to have Christmas and New Years in Summer, it might as well be colorful, no?
Everywhere you look, there are flowers. Beginning with the purple Jacarandas in Spring, the city blossoms in every park, balconies, terraces and unexpected spots too.
Lucky me, my husband enjoys having lots of fresh flowers in the house as much as I do.
And lucky me, he likes to surprise me with a bouquet now and then also.
The flower lady that we go to, can be relied on for the freshest flowers and the best selection.
I still don't know what some of them are called ... in English or in Spanish, but they are beautiful, nonetheless. Not bad for January, is it ?

The names of flowers here are not always the names we knew them by in the US. They reminded me of a flower back in the US but not that color .. they are very delicate and did not last long but I sure liked them ! I will ask the Flower Lady- besos, Billy ! , thank you Anony !
