End of March

March 31, 2012

Today is the last day of March, which is strange to me because it feels like it just flew by! Does anyone else feel that way?

I had a lot of great moments this month, such as going to Florida and going out to see live music. Some of the weather was great too. When I came back from Florida on the 13th, it was so warm for over a week! Then it became cold again, ick!

I don’t know how warm it has been for all of you, but I hope that Ontario will get a warm April, leading to an early summer! I really dislike cold weather.

Anyway, let’s hope for some warm weather and some great blogs to read! 🙂

Beautiful photo!

Lifelong photo exposure

pink blossoms in march in Montenegro

While I was hunting the mist, these ones became two weeks old and thus outdated. Things change quickly here in spring.
I call them Pink Middle March trees. Any ideas, what they are really called?

Awesome photos! 🙂

The Iris and the Lily

An unusually  warm meteorological spring has given way to a plethora of flowers. 

Where once brown earth ruled waves of blue now command.

Hand in hand with flowers come emerged insects.

Beetles and bees and butterflies.

While sitting on the brown earth trying to photograph my Helleborus this gentle Sulphur  flew ’round me. For a moment of time it landed on my lips.  A kiss, a wish fulfilled.

To sit in Gaia’s garden and become one with her children, magical. . .

If you have been reading my blog for a while, you probably know that I sometimes go overboard with watching tv shows and movies on Netflix. Over the past month or two, I have been watching several different tv shows and have grown to love them. I know that (at least) several of my followers have Netflix and enjoy checking out new shows, so I wanted to tell you about three shows you should watch. They have all come out within the last 3 or 4 years.

The first show I wanted to mention is definitely my favourite out of the three; Drop Dead Diva. Drop Dead Diva is a comedy/ drama about a girl named Deb who was a beautiful aspiring model who ends up getting into a car crash and dying. She is sent to a place where they decide where she will be sent (Heaven or Hell) and she ends up pressing the return button to return to earth. She is not sent back into her own body, but instead is sent into the body of Jane, a “plus-sized” (<–I hate that term) brunette who is a very intelligent and successful lawyer. She has to now live her life as Jane, with all of Jane’s intelligence, but all of Deb’s memories. It is a great show that gives you tons of laughs and has some really great actors in it, including Brooke Elliot, April Bowlby and Jackson Hurst (who actually tweeted me about a week ago!!! Can you tell I was excited?). Definitely an awesome show that everyone should check out. Netflix has the first two seasons, we are waiting on the third to be put up, and the fourth season plays on Lifetime this summer.

The second show that I found is Accidentally on Purpose. The show was only created for one season (I don’t think the ratings were great), which I find depressing, but I found it to be incredibly funny. It is about a woman in her mid-thirties named Billie (played by Jenna Elfman) who has a one night stand with twenty-two year old Zack (played by Jon Foster, who was in Stay Alive) and gets pregnant. They then end up living together and the show is all about them trying to get along and figure out how they will raise the baby! I laughed through every episode, so I am not sure why they cancelled it, but at least we were given one season of a funny show. Look it up if you want to enjoy lots of laughs!

The third show that I found is Melrose Place 2.0. This is another show that was cancelled after only one season due to ratings, and I have only watched half of the episodes so far, but it seems to be pretty good. I never watched the original Melrose Place (I was too young when it was on) but I decided to check this one out. It is about a group of twenty-something professionals living at the infamous Melrose complex. They deal with drugs, relationships, violence, murder and more. The show stars Katie Cassidy (who has been on Supernatural and Gossip Girl), Jessica Lucas and Ashlee Simpson, among others. The cast all seem pretty good (except for Ashlee Simpson, but that isn’t surprising) and the plot has kept me interested so far so I think this one would be great for those to check out who enjoy young adult dramas.

Netflix also has some other great shows, such as Dexter and The Walking Dead, both of them I LOVE. I still say that they could use some more variety in their tv shows and movies, but so far I have been finding some great stuff to watch. If you decide to watch any of these shows, let me know what you think of them. 🙂

Last Day in Florida

Having to leave Florida was so sad. I took this photo on my last day.

I hope I can go back one day!
