Cherry skies

What could be more delicious

Than a swirl of blue,

Cherry sky copy

Fragile petals shining

In the spring sun

Blue and pink

And an entire sky

Of pink blossoms?

  37. hi, fi! i’m stopping back on behalf of inger at desert canyon living. she’s been unable to comment on wordpress blogs lately. she heard from another wordpress blogger that she had been tagged in wordpress as spam! she asked if you’d check to see if she’s landed there on your blog, too. if so, she’d love it if you could remove her from there so she can comment here again! she loves your blog!

    May 1, 2014 at 23:51

      Another friend has also had problems commenting on all WordPress blogs at the moment since updating her browser.

      I’ve changed some of the settings, so hope that she can now comment.
