Thanks burn for the nice start. Hope spring arrives there for you? I've one that I'd like to share. Could anyone dream of a better place to be spending Mother's Day than this young Mom and her small daughter with Papa on board? Look at sunset on that special day.
Wow, great pics everyone! Thank you for your lovely words about Nicholas. They left last Friday and now the house is too quiet!LOL
Burn, thanks for starting a new thread for us!
I have a sunrise from 2 days ago.
How lovely Adina.
Amazing how quickly you get used to the sounds of a little one in the house...and how still the house seems when they leave. I am happy you had such a nice visit with your DD and Nicholas. 8-)
Oh okay, I see now Moon. Thanks Margaret. I hope to find the young couple and the child as the boating season is on the way. Boaters and fishermen alike really enjoy my "tropical garden" I created on the pier. My furbabies also enjoy "birding" in the area. lol Here they're in the early morning hours.
Kim, I also like your tropical garden and your furbabies, so cute!
I hope to post some pics later from home, I'm at the office now.
Moon, thanks God for the internet and phone so we can hear and see the baby almost everyday...but still its not like he 's here!
I've been busy writing another article which appeared today :
Thank you , guys! It's always a pleasure to share pics with someone who appreciates it! What the pictures don't show is me running down the stairs, after the first row of pics, to catch the sun on the field before dissapearing!LOL
Hi Kim. We are on the East bank of the Mississippi so all is high and dry here...too dry...no rain to speak of in over a month. I guess we all have figured out that Mother nature is not happy. My friends in Tuscaloosa are out of the hospital and on the road to recovery...their home and possessions are gone, but they both survived it. My heart goes out to the folks in Joplin, also.
Moon, Thanks for asking. We are very fortunate that none got hurt in the Tornado of April 27th. Some distance relatives has property damages but no one got hurt. Yes, "Mother nature is not happy..." agreed. I'm glad you are not being directly affected by the flood. We've so many things to be thankful of everyday, you and I.
Sunrise and butterfly. This could be a lovely pix if I knew anything about photography. lol
Great pix, Bev and Kim! I have no pix, my laptop has been broken lately, but I am catching up now.
One picture with Nicholas from his birthday, he is 1 year old! Here he is with Mommy and Daddy and the cake.
Very lovely Patti. love the different hues in the Mountains and the color of the sky.
Adina, wonderful family, like Kim said, you can see the pride and joy in their eyes.
Happy to see you posting again, Bev Nice shot.
I took this silhouette of a hummingbird a while back.
Hehehehe Bernadette, we're very talented, moon and I and we are just bit shy, at least I can speak for myself. lol. Ardesia, those palm-like fonds give your view a tropical effect. And the wispy spanish moss weeping down from tree branches reminded me of Savannah Georgia, a beautiful town. Welcome.
Now that all the neighbor's trees have leafed out, I don't "see" the sun rise until it is above the tree line...by then, it is just the sun...grin. Lately, whether it rains or not, and usually NOT, it is too overcast to see the sunsets. I told DH I need an observation deck up high enough to see the sunrise...he just grinned and shook his head...LOL
I hear that, 'Moon'. At least the DH know how to 'listen'. lol. It's the very deck that we've that afforded that view of sunrise for me in the morning. Only round this time of year, other time, I've to hop on the goft cart to go around the Island to watch the sunrise. From our back deck however, we can see sunset most days. I'm glad you've enjoyed the view.
About the rain, it has been terrible drought 'til last week. When it rained it poured though. Today, was the first day I had put the springlers on for the flowers in the garden in a week. Had the task accomplished early before the temp. rises.
We had a nice series of showers last week also...got a whole 2 inches over 3-4 days. It actually got the chance to soak in. Another DG user in Central, LA got nearly 7 inches in 1 shower...She is only 25 miles NW of me...it was like a wall the way some storms veered to the north of us. Now we too need to water. Ah summer in the South...feast or famine...grin
Gorgeous sunset, Kim. Winter? Well, it's sort of here. We've had a bit of rain and it's certainly cooler in the evenings, but daytime, you can still get around in a T-shirt. We're expecting a major front tomorrow.
Beautiful sunset and lovely location. Do you mind my asking what kind of camera you are using? I unintentially poured iced tea on mine the other day and it seems like a good time to look into a new one.
Thank you, it did take that shot but it is a little fuzzier than I would like. I was looking at new cameras in Costco the other day and eventually gave up, I need to do a lot more research before I buy another.

Thank God for the sunrise...I just pushed the shutter button.. (~;
It is Grenada Lake in Grenada, MS USA, the lake contains 35,820 acres of water and has approximately 148 miles of shoreline. More info can be found at the following link http://www.mvk.usace.army.mil/lakes/ms/grenada/index.php
Great pics everyone!Sorry I have been away for so long, but the veggie garden and the articles took all my time!LOL
Mike, stunning sunrise!
Ardesia welcome, great pics! Sorry for the camera.
I have a sunset from a few weeks ago.
Very nice pics. Adina and Burn. Especially with the garden in the foreground shot. I saw some nice sunset recently, got to get the camera handy. Just dropping in to say hi to everyone. Enjoy gardening moon. :)
Not cold at all, Kim. Right now, at 8pm it's 17C (62F) and we had a maximum of 20C (68F) today. Jeans and T-shirt weather. It does get colder than that, but where we are, the lowest it would ever get would be about 3C as an overnight minimum, maybe two or three times during winter. The other side of the country is much cooler than here. Where my sister is, in Canberra, which is a few hundred km west of Sydney, is freezing. They had something like -8C last night and really cold maximums.
Kim, great pics!
Margaret, nice weather in Australia during winter! Our summer has been great so far we had rain and heat too. Now I'm enjoying vacation, second and the last one this year. I'm waking up at 6 a.m. to water and enjoy the sunrise, if I get up early enough. It's around 6 these days.I have some pics to download from my camera. Here's a picture of some of the sunflowers in my veggie garden.
I'm a bit late to the thread. Thanks for your comments girls. I've enjoyed yours as well.
Kim, Your DH did a great job with the shot. It's beautiful. I love the silhouette one too with the people fishing.
Sunflowers, wear their name well. so bright and cheery, Adina.
Wow beautiful Kim, looks very peaceful.
I can't get any nice sunset or sunrise. We had such a wet Spring and Summer. Lots of lightning and Thunder storms, some hail, even had a tornado come through town. I was sure my birch (bird) tree out back, was a goner, but it stood. there were lots of uprooted trees in town, a few streets in town lost power, for about 20 hrs. An outdoor theater was torn apart. And a Barn was destroyed by a lightning fire with 11 cows and ??? goats. The guy manage to save a few of his cows and goats. But through all of this, we are thankful, no one got hurt.
Hiya Burn...this has indeed been a hellacious weather year. Glad you didn't have any damage and no one got hurt. Pity about the cows and goats though. I can send ya some ridiculously hot weather...grin Heat Indices up to 120F... (75 to 95% humidity). Seems everyone has their weather woes this year.
LOL Moon, I'll pass on your generosity. You guys must be pretty well cooked, brown on all sides. I wouldn't be able to move in that kind of heat.It's been a bad year, weather wise, for everyone. I can at least appreciate that, I don't have to water everything, and that the blooms are not all crisp. :)
Thanks Kim, it was a bit scary, to watch it all happening.It gave me a better understanding, of what others have to live through.
Nice, Moon and Kim! You have such a nice setting there, Kim. Sometimes I think I would love to live on the water, but then I don't like all the cold wind that can come off of a pond/lake/ocean/bay/whatever.
Got a few shots of sunset at a beach in Plymouth the other night.
Hi moon. It's chilly here at present, but we're expecting warm days in the coming week. I've loved the winter. Our winters are very mild. Summers are much harder to take. Signs that spring is just around the corner are everywhere.
Here's a sunrise a few days ago from the small town of Augusta, on the south west coast of Western Australia. The Southern Ocean is in the background, beyond the mouth of the Blackwood River.
That is lovely Margaret. I would imagine that your winters are similar to winters in Brisbane...mayhap a bit warmer? I think your summers are similar to summers here in south Louisiana (low to mid 30's C?), just minus the humidity.
Yeah, we have had a few days at 38C...whew! and our nights are staying pretty much between 23 and 25C. The lack of rain has been a real problem also. A little less than 1 inch thus far...usually closer to 3 inches this far into August. As a whole we are more than 10 inches below the norm...and my water bill reflects every inch...grin. strangely, our humidity levels have been fairly high staying over 60% even at midday. gives that lovely sauna effect...grin
Where's my post???? Sorry , I sent a post yesterday, and I don't see it here. Oh well, I want to tell you all, your sunset and sunrise are really beautiful. They are announcing some nice weather, for the next couple of days, and hoping to get some good shots.
