I decided to head this post with an iris from spring, because everything outside is brown or gray. Though my parsley is still bright green.

Thanks for the glimpse of spring!

Shabbat Shalom!

Thanks! All of my recent photos seem to be of family, business-like, or kind of dreary. So I randomly clicked on an album from springtime and went with the iris.

Shabbat Shalom.

Lovely shades of blue, thanks. I'll try and have a look at the article about the Jews of Turkey before Shabbat.
When I get back online I desperately need to find insights on corporate culture, not so interesting!
Shabbat Shalom!

What lovely tones, light and contrasts in this beautiful photo.

Shabbat Shalom!
