Rain, rain, go away.

I can't remember the last time it rained like this on Easter weekend. At least, I don't have to worry about draggin' myself out of bed at 5:00 AM for Sunrise Service tomorrow morning. It has finally stopped lightning and everything is so green outside that it hurts your eyes. Even with the rain, the heady fragrance of the orange blossoms, Carolina jasmine, plums and wisteria is intoxicating. Sensory overload. When the sun comes out, it will be glorious.

Speaking of orange blossoms, I have been asked by a production company, RIVR Media in Knoxville, for permission to use my photographs of orange blossoms as background for a new TV program in production called "Backyard Habitat" for the Animal Planet Channel. How cool is that!? Whatever photo they select will only be shown for a few seconds but I am still flattered that they asked. I've requested a credit so we shall see what happens. You can see the whole spring tour by starting here..

Dinner last night appears below.
Grilled Salmon with my homemade Raspberry Chipotle Sauce
Fresh Broccoli and Roasted Sweet Onions.


I have realized that if I show dinner most every night, there will be a lot of pix of salmon. We eat it at least once a week and often twice per week.

Nothing quite so interesting as looking at a slab o'fish, is there?

Your salmon dinner presentation is tres appealing! I'm not a fish lover, but I must say, it looks great! Might even tempt me into trying a bite.

Also took your tour. Great photos. I can almost smell the flowers. And the recent humidity (yech).

This can't truly have success, I feel this way.
