Picture of the Week

This project is gonna get a whole lot easier! I'm part of a 365 group on flickr now called 365friends, it's a group of JW's who are supposed to post a picture a day for the whole year. Well, it actually started last year and maybe the majority of members did all their posting last year because since I've been on I've seen maybe 10 out of 68 current members posting!  Oh well, I'm the newbie and it's fun, I get comments and critiquing on my stuff (the compliments are the most fun though!)  And I'm meeting other witnesses all over the world.  One member who contributes some interesting stuff is in Japan and submits regular day-to-day type stuff, but that's regular day-to-day type stuff in Japan!  So it's not regular day-to-day type stuff that we see everyday.

Anyway, so I have a batch of cool stuff that I shot this week to choose from and I choose the one that got the most comments and compliments:


This is my akebia vine, I'm always anxious for this to bloom because it has the most interesting, delicate, and unusually photogenic flowers.  But doesn't smell one iota - I asked the super-sniffer to go test it out, nada.

K, tried to put the rest of last week's stuff up in little thumbnails - too much trouble to try to get them to line up nicely like I'd like.  So click on the 365 friends link above, find one of my pix (I'm suzierwilliams) and you can go to my photostream and look at the rest of my stuff.

This is going down as the most famous picture you've ever taken. Reviews are flying in from all over the world!

How will you ever top it?

So now I'm gonna be confused if these are your own flowers or one of the groups'. I was gonna get one of these vines when I was still back there. They are so unusual. I saw them out in service.

About Me

My photo
After 2 unsuccessful marriages I spent 12 years as a divorcee, only to fall prey to another man's wiles. We had a fun 5 years together and then he decided he wanted more freedom so once again I'm single.

So I'm freshly divorced at 57 and have 5 great kids and now 7 grandkids. My kids are still a major part of my life but I'm busy helping my aging parents on Kauai.

I've lived in California, Hawaii and Oklahoma before finally settling here in Washington. I love Washington and come back to visit family, friends and take care of my garden often but will be temporarily a resident of Kauai.

I've moved 30 times in my life (no, my parents weren't in the service, at least not since I was about 2) and finally planted roots when I got my little house that I've owned since '91.

My family are Jehovah's Witnesses, I've been one since '72.
