The horse show at Old Salem is happening. I really love the horses, seeing friends, taking photographs. Then when it sprinkles I head into the tent for that floral beauty and table decorations. ⠀⠀

This is where you will find me this weekend. Have a beautiful time wherever you go. ⠀⠀

I drove around town a lot. Finally, the pink buds I have been waiting for. Parts of Connecticut were very delayed in creating this beauty, but it's catching up. You would actually see me horizontal on the ground when I capture these, it's grounding for me. ⁣⠀

Have a great weekend.

Right now I’m in Grand Central Terminal. A luncheon and business meetings keeping me busy until I return home to put my 20,000 honey bees 🐝 into their cozy hives. Fancy dress to farming clothes. 👩🏼‍🌾⠀

Do you like days that are mixed up with different things to do? I sure do.

It’s Polaroid Week and time to grab your instant camera. Sharing 8 here —> I use my trusty SX-70 and 250 Land Camera. Love the mystery. I never know what I’ll see after I press click.

Finally in the northeast we are seeing green and a smidgen of pink around. It's still 50 degrees most days. ⁣⠀

So for #aprillove2019 I have #reflections, taken just down the street from us in Connecticut. @susannahconway 🌿

I used to dance when I was little, in fact after all these years I might have one ballet outfit saved. The arts are so important, which is why I love supporting the little ballerinas in Cuba. I entered a few photography shows with these little ones, in their blue tutus. Planning to return in the Fall, who else is going this year?⁣⠀

#prodanza. Thank you for the new dresses @justshootingit

For you, a quick little video from this past Saturday night with the @the_explorers_club, in the room honoring 10 Apollo Astronauts for #ECAD2019 extravaganza. Note the hoopla and flowers and exotic food and Times Square and gorgeous dresses, even lit up like the stars. I end the video with astronaut Buzz Aldrin’s photo from his walk on the moon which is at the Explorers Club HQ. .

Just two+ years ago The New York Public Library's historic Rose Main Reading Room re-opened, after a huge restoration. Of course I love the tables and sitting there and reading. But looking up, it's over the top beautiful. ⁣⁣⠀

Last month I went to the famous Westminster Dog Show in NYC. 130 breeds and varieties were represented, but seeing this little sweet dog in someone's purse at Starbucks was the cutest ever. ⁣⁣⠀

One night in Havana a group of us went to The Morro Castle for the sunset and the light show. We sat on the huge walls and watched the lights turn on in Havana. I found this skyline to be breathtaking in yellow and orange. ⁣⁣⠀

I think it's pretty yet so simple. @arjuna44 💛
