I had a great day today with my family, especially with Nicholas. We had a barbeque and a Tiramisu fruit cake my son-in-law made for me.
Posting me with the cake, and Nicholas with my DD eating the cake. More pics and videos here :

I haven't taken part in this series in recent times for the simple reason that I had not taken many 'shareable' shots. This morning I was up there on the balcony early and enjoyed this sunrise beneath that coconut frond. The silly camera does not read my mind. It thought I was looking at the frond rather than the lovely sun!

Prairieville, LA(Zone 9a)

Hi Dinu. That is a really nice picture. It almost looks like a travel poster.

I managed to catch the sun slipping away Friday evening. As you can see the trees are all pretty much leaved out again.

Thanks Moonhowl. I tried to crop another unwanted picture. It is crazy!

Grand-Falls, NB(Zone 4a)

That is very pretty Dinu. I agree those crazy cameras, have a mind of their own, sometimes. ;) It happens to me a lot with bird pics. It'll focus on the branch, instead of the bird.
Kim, I would love, to be able to take shots on the lake, like you do. Love the reflection of the setting sun on the water in your pics.
Aww Moon, now you'll have to go behind the tree, to take the shots. lol Still nice though.I especially like your March 14 shot.

We had a nice sunset a few nights ago, but was not willing to get in my car, to go get some shots. If I take it from home, I get the power lines in it.
This one is from January.

Thanks much. Burn, if I go to the other side of the tree line I will have to climb my neighbor's back fence, or drive a couple miles to get there. I really like the bands of color in that shot. In a couple months the sun will set a bit further to the west and then it will just be roof tops....grin

Grand-Falls, NB(Zone 4a)

Oh, I know Roof tops too. 8)

Thanks Dinu for those neat photos. Bernadette, wow those are some dramatic shots!!! Like the corner of the horizon is on fire. :))

Central, AL(Zone 7b)

A hummingbird visited at close to sunset yesterday evening. Hah, that's the best I can offer for now.

Great shots everyone!
Dinu, great to see you here!
I have a few shots of a sunset taken a few days ago. I'm glad to report that there is no snow left in my part of the world!

Adina

It's nice to hear ... that there is no snow left, for what you've been through was some ordeal!. Adina. Nice pics. Thanks.

Grand-Falls, NB(Zone 4a)

Adina, no more snow!!! your ahead of us. There are still patches of snow here. My slope in the back is well covered. I`ll take a picture in the morning of my pond area.
Kim, enjoy that little hummer. Can`t wait to greet them in my yard.

Prairieville, LA(Zone 9a)

We have had so much cloudy weather and rainy weather that there haven't been many interesting sunsets and the trees are in full leaf now, so I don't see the actual sun before 8am.

Kinda looks like everyone is missing in action....hope you are all busy in the gardens ...

The last sunset I saw...

Central, AL(Zone 7b)

Moon, we do get a similar sky. Here is an example what it's like in early morning. Lots of rain lately. I too was M.I.A. for a while but am trying to get back to gardening soon.

Bernadette, have you any hummingbirds yet? Adina, hope spring has sprung there where you're? Dinu, hope you'll have some more pix to share soon?

Prairieville, LA(Zone 9a)

Hi Kim...kinda figured as much....as the crow flies I am a wing flap or two south of Mobile...lots of humidity when it isn't raining. Hope all is well with you.

Waving to everyone from the not so sunny south...grin

Central, AL(Zone 7b)

~grin. the ... not so sunny south is right! These past few days has been rough. But look, the Cotoneaster I potted has survived, and is sending out flowers! It correlated with other (cotoneasters) in the garden too.

Prairieville, LA(Zone 9a)

Whoo Hoo...good job Kim. That is really looking great. Now to just convince it to stay that size...grin

Yeah, rain from the Gulf and wind from the north...gone from high 80's and sunny to chilly and wet. DH had the a/c on yesterday...told him it was 10 degrees cooler outside than inside...open the windows and keep our money out of the electric company's pocket...they will get enough come summer.

Mysore, India(Zone 10a)

Ah yes, Lily Love. There is one recent photo of sunset I took Sunday last. At the lake in Mysore. I was able to just make there in the nick of time, virtually as you can see. I was passing by the lake. The sun was still there in full and by the time I parked my scooter outside the fenced area and went in to the walk way some 100 metres away, I was just able get this shot.

Thumbnail by Dinu
Prairieville, LA(Zone 9a)

Nice shot Dinu....sleepy sun...I like it.

Balotesti, Romania(Zone 5a)

Great shot, Dinu! Seems so misterious!
Kim, I love Cottoneaster! I used to have one in the garden of the building I was living in in Bucharest, but didn't take a cutting.
Bernadette, is your snow gone ?
Jean, we had rain and Sahara sand over our country these days...they said it was a sandstorm and brought some of the sand over here. Everything is covered with dust and the rainwater was yellow...go figure! Your sun behind the clouds looks misterious too!LOL
I have a sunset from a week ago, also behind the clouds.

Adina

Hi everyone, I haven't taken any sunset lately. Adina It's has been so beautiful here, the pass few days, most of the snow that was left melted. I still have a little bit of snow and ice on the pond. Kim, nice to see you've succeeded with your cotoneaster, looking good! No hummingbirds yet. They usually arrive around May 10th. Sorry you guys are getting the lousy weather. Glad for your garden though ;) Jean sending sunshine your way.
Dinu, that is a beautiful view!

It's not a recent pic. Dug it out of the archive.

Lovely shots, everyone. Adina, that is amazing about you getting Sahara sand. Who says the weather's not completely whacky.

Here are a few sunrise shots I took a couple of weeks back.

Just what you needed Adina...dust on everything right after you finished Spring cleaning.....that must have been quite a storm to carry so much sand your way.

Thanks, Bernadette.....I just need it to dry up enough to be able to get into the beds....the weeds think it is party time. Your pic almost looks like a brush fire.

Wow Margaret. Those are spectacular. I think you got every sunrise color in there.So vivid I thought they were sunsets...

Balotesti, Romania(Zone 5a)

Lovely shots, Bernadette and Margaret...I like especially the second one, stunning!
Jean, it's not that much dust ,, but enough to show a dirty window, grrr! I took pics of the car, the window,, the tiles from the terrace and the water in the bucket which I'm usually saving for watering the flowers. Might this sand have brought any seeds from Africa?LOL

This morning, my newspaper delivery man showed me the sun having 4 lines radiating from it. In fact it was the thin low clouds that were playing that trick. Only 3 days ago we had discussed about sunrise and how nice it is to watch. He is lucky as he goes on his bicycle to deliver newspapers to homes at that time.

Prairieville, LA(Zone 9a)

Yes Adina...it may have brought seeds with it....Hurricane Gustav was mostly wind when it hit...it brought all kinds of weed seeds with it....grrrr.

Prairieville, LA(Zone 9a)

Good Morning...the trees have leafed out covering the sunrise, but still offers a view or two...we are in the warm day cool night cycle here, so always a bit hazy in the morning...but the sun highlights some of the haze...
