in the nursery

Yesterday, we went to a nursery, even though we only have a small balcony. Gerry misses the gardening. The camera was already hanging around my neck, so I took the opportunity to shoot a few pictures. Cats and little flowers … that’s what I like to shoot πŸ™‚

Later, in the evening, I went to a commemoration of Holocaust Remembrance Day. Didn’t even bring the camera, as I assumed picture taking would be frowned upon. Turned out it was the contrary … The president of Saint John Jewish Historical Society, who opened this commemoration, even encouraged photographing. I shot a couple with my cell phone, but the camera phones require much better lighting. In any event, it was beautiful and very moving. I think they may have been a little bit overwhelmed by the attendance — only standing room was available when it all started.

    I love going to nursery’s, so many beautiful plants, and often a lot of new ones that I had never heard of as well. πŸ™‚
    That’s great that so many turned up, they must of been very pleased with that.
    The photos are very nice, yes even the one taken with the camera phone.

    What a good turn-out for the commemoration! it’s good to see that people still care what happened all those years ago. The photo is pretty good for a cell phone.
    Did Gerry get his ‘gardening” fix walking through the nursery? πŸ˜‰

    The two elements of your post may have seemed like they were totally different —
    but there is something about beautiful growing flowers that is both healing and a promise of hope and new life —

      I didn’t think of that when I wrote it, but now that you mention it … beautifully put!
