The Invitation

 A friend called this morning to invite me to take a ride with her while she did some errands.  I jumped at the chance to get out of the house on this dreary, rainy day, knowing that if I stayed home I'd spend the day sitting at the computer or the sewing machine. Not that being at the computer or sewing machine is a bad thing, just very sedentary and considering I'll be working tomorrow--sitting at the computer all day--I thought a little activity today might be a good thing.

After finishing the errands, we turned the car around and came face-to-face with this scene.  It was irresistible.  What senedipity that the house is painted the same color as the lilacs in the foreground.  Normally I would wonder about a house painted that color, but it suits that house perfectly. 

So, it was a good day:
1-spent time with a friend
2-got out of the house
3-had a great converstation about cameras
4-had lunch at a fun little tea house
5-bought some delicious wine called Redneck
(gotta love upstate NY--where else would you
 find a wine named Redneck?)
6-found a photo op

May 15:  53 degrees and rain.  Yikes!

It appears you, too, remembered the lesson learned long ago from our wise teacher: shoot the scene both vertically and horizontally. Oh ARE that great teacher! :-)

I really liked the vertical image, but LOVE the's a keeper! If I were that homeowner, I would love a copy of that image!

As for your comment on the weather...guess we should be could be a whole lot worse (tornadoes and flooding...LOL). :-)

Loved the house and the color...looks like there should be a little story to go along with the 'Lavender House"....

Awesome! I think you should knock on the door and offer an 8x10 at a high price. I wonder if they used the lilacs as inspiration when picking out paint color?
