Hello All Seasons Bloggers,
This week the link list is open from Sunday February 10
to Friday Feb. 15 noon,
Pacific time.

Most of you seem more active than I am! It is always a pleasure to look and read your interesting, beautiful and humorous posts – many thanks!

February has several celebrations
Feb 1 – Groundhog Day
Feb 12 – Lincoln’s birthday
Feb 14 – Valentine’s Day
Feb. 18 – President’s Day
Feb 22 – Washington’s Birthday
Feb 27(?) – All Seasons’ Birthday

Happy Valentine for the ones who celebrate it! Not long ago I saw a movie about celebrating Valentine like it was Christmas – interesting idea:)


Am going for “textures” and “shapes ” here, not as much for colors!

With Valentine’s Day, purple comes to my mind,
the color of royalty,
for his journey in life is that of royal  motives.




Ah, the sails remind me of the voyage Valentine made to reach his destination in Ireland and Scotland. He was beheaded in 269 AD for performing Christian marriages.
From Wikipedia it seems that there were 3 Valentines, and they were all three martyrs.

A personal tidbit, I instinctively clicked the camera – good I did, because on the way back we passed the same Star of India in San Diego, the the sails were down!




A bouquet from farmers market for you
who like flowers for Valentine’s Day
No chocolate?
With Christmas we had so much chocolate
given to us, and then came my son from Holland
a week ago and brought
Belgian chocolate filled with liquor(Maison Leonidas),
I’ll pass on the chocolate for a while:)





The shape of this hill reminds me of plum pudding:)
and the texture of wheat.

Are there feast days in Febuary where you live?

    That’s a great photo of the Star of India with sails up! I live in San Diego, and I’ve rarely seen that many sails on it. It’s always an amazing sight, though!


  2. I wish we celebrated Groundhog Day, I love the movie.

    I love looking for textures, too. It’s amazing what you can find. Love the ones you captured.

    I would help you eat that extra chocolate if I were there)). Nice to have a visit from your son……the Star of India is an impressive ship. And thank you for sharing the beautiful Valentine bouquet!


  6. That is a beautiful photo of the sails. Really good that you clicked the camera when you did. The hill reminding your of plum pudding made me laugh out loud, texture of wheat I can see though 🙂

    I’m not sure I’ve had plum pudding. I’ve had figgy pudding and bread pudding, is it anything like that? Nice ship photo, it looks so dignified. Beautiful pink flowers. I had a lot of chocolate over Christmas too, but right now I’m all about Tootsie Rolls.

  10. Lovely shots, Jesh. Your celebratory post reminds me that I was remiss in making up my own “Festive February” post – something that I will put right forthwith!
