The wisteria shot is magical, I can see myself walking through that arbour looking up and breathing in the perfume of spring.

WOW! That wisteria shot is something else! Almost abstract .

You weren't joking when you said you were doing 'Spring' today, JM. Beautiful colors. I love ice plants. It was all around our home in Pasadena, California, and save us from a fire in the field next door. Pretty and practical :).

In reply--
JM, already in 1966 Aristides de Sousa Mendes was recognized by Yad Vashem as one of the Righteous Among the Nations.
Please see

His story there is so interesting. He deserves many thanks and more recognition.
I guess Wallenberg gets so much attention because of his mysterious disappearance.

I'm not sure how well-known Mendes is among the people here. I will take a little survey and report back to you. Yes, you did tell me about Mendes, a year ago, and I thank you for that.

Dazzling shots! Wisteria comes and goes so fast - and ice plant is such an eye-popping flower.
