Hah, opening a new box of crayons... that's one complex drawing with crayons, Jean. Thanks for the new thread. I'm heading out to the garden hoping to catch something interesting as the sun set in a bit...
My pleasure...and Thanks. That is sunrise at Kata Tjuta national park...the home of Australia's Uluru (Ayer's Rock) It is a fascinating place. In the hottest part of summer, the rock holds so much heat that it can be seen from space at night...it is a Sacred place for the Aboriginal People of Australia.
I agree, that little tree deserves a bit of special treatment.
Jean, thanks for the new thread. Very interesting stone and site. Were you there on vacation? I'm glad you had rain, we would sure need some too.
Thanks everyone for the good words. My DD and Nicholas seem to be OK, so all is good.
Great pics everyone, lovely sunsets.
I have a sunrise, but will post it later from home. I'm at the office now and catching up. It's so hot here I need to water everyday, but the garden is fine, tomatoes are ripening.
Here are some pics with Nicholas in the garden from last week. He loved the cherry tomatoes !
And more here :
Hi Adina. Yes, we were in Au visiting our daughter and SIL. That was back in 2007...GS was almost 2 y/o then. Like any Grandma I have a ton of pics of him from that trip.
I would say Nicholas is going to be quite the gardener with all the good training and fun he is having...he is such a cutie.
It is truly fascinating to me Burn...I consider it an old Modern wonder...grin I got to watch the sunrise over it and understand why it holds such power for the Aborigines...they say it hold souls...etc...and the crags and holes make faces as the light hits them...truly an experience.
Ha there she is, I was wondering where Margaret had gone.
Adina, that sweet darling of a GS of your is huggable.
That Rock is certainly amazing, must have a lot of stories to tell, So neat that it shows faces when the light hits it. I would love to see all the wonders of the world, including this one.
Awesome colors in those shot DMersh.
A far and close shot of a sunset, I wanted to bring out the outline of the clouds
I love the way the sun "picotees" the clouds, Burn. Lovely.
Yes Margaret, we took the Valley of the Winds walk through the Olgas, the same day we walked all the way around Uluru (9.4k) almost 6 miles. We were a tired and hungry crew after our adventure, and everyone of us had a "rosy" glow...we were covered in fine red dust...grin
Great pics everyone!
Jean thanks for sharing those pics, so impressive! And your grandson is so adorable!
Dmersh, awesome sunset!
Bernadette, lovely sunset too!
Margaret good to hear from you!
Hey, Sherri and Kim!
Here's the promissed sunrise. I am on vacation...or should i say staycation...LOL..so I will have more time to take pictures!
Correct. Concerts are at Riverside Park in Davenport. Yearly affair. Always visit botanic gardens in Davenport (Van der Meer) and the Quad Cities Botanical Garden in Rock Island when there.
How about yourself?
BluesFest in Baton Rouge and EarthDay in BR back in April, but no chance to play since then. They were both great shows. Royal Southern Brotherhood (Greg Allman's oldest son, Devan and Cyril Neville and friends) and Lightnin' Malcolm were my favorite "new" groups...Johnny Winter was phenomenal as one would expect.
Sounds like a great venue...good music and botanical gardens...scratch a couple itches at the same time.
I am so excited...for the first time in quite a while, we had a visible sunset...not swallowed by storm clouds. No super saturated colors, but the 3rd pic reminds me of dolphins playing...flights of fancy...grin
Oh Jean, that's the most "fun" cake there is!!! Happy birthday to you J. The lilies are just as beautiful, fine fine job! Oh Jean what's a sunbird please. I saw the cloud but couldn't tide it with any image. lol
The sun bird is a Phoenix, Kim. It is found in folklore of a number of cultures...a bird that rises from its own ashes, but my favorite reference is a poem by Ogden Nash
Deep in the study
We find that fabled
Fowl, the Phoenix.
The wisest bird
As ever was,
Mas and Pas,
It lays one egg,
Not ten or twelve,
And when it's hatched it,
Out pops itself.
Jean, thank you. Yes the legend of the Phoenix bird ... and love the poem too. Thanks. Did you know; On some far away land, birthdays are celebrated among the lunar moon calendar New Year day? That means a child that was born on Dec. 31st, will be TWO years of "age" by the 1st of the Lunar New-Year day!!! Poor baby! LOL
Missed sunrise and set; things have really been busy, busy here. So there is this "sun flower" for everyone. (a Brugmansia flower agaisnt the misty sky).
Happy Belated Birthday, jmorth! Beautiful gloriosa you got there!
Jean, lovely dolphins! Nicholas has come home for good...again! Andreea left her BF apparently for the last time. She has finally realized what we've been telling her for months,, that he is a jerk. She has a job here in the village now so we hope everything will be OK.
Bernadette and Kim, love your skies!
We finally had rain last night, with lots of thunders and lightnings,, yeaaaah! This is another sunrise from 2 days ago when it was still hot.
Thank you both so much for the good thoughts. I'm really enjoying having them both here again all the time! It's exausting playing with Nicholas , but such fun! And since we had so much rain these days I didn't have to loose time with watering anymore . We went to take her things back from the apartment today and i hope this is finally over!
Jean, you might be right, that red sun brought the rain!
That's beautiful Sherri! What gorgeous blooms of your passion flowers! I had a yellow one once but I killed it.
Jean, thanks for the chuckle I needed that!
Jmorth, lovely moon and bird!
You were all so kind with your wishes, but unfortunately my DD moved back to her BF.. I'm so sad. After we were getting along so well,, she was going to work and I was babysitting since I'm still on vacation, she started to meet him again and my DH had a strong argument with her so she decided she'd better leave. They have both the same temper and it's hard for them to live too much together without arguing.. Although I think she would have left anyway...sigh.
I have some sunrise pics for you,, in a more cheerful note.
Kim, as Sherri said!LOL Love the brug!
I have some new pics, but since I have been busy lately (started work...grrr!) I will post them later. Anyways, nothing too amazing because the weather is hot again and sunrise and sunset are almost the same, no clouds at all on the sky.
Very nice flowers in your sky shots sunkissed. ; )
Adina. the clouds add so much interest, and I love the way the sun shines behind them.
Yours too jmorth. The one with the field brings back memories of my childhood.
Kim, out of 8 brugs only 2 made flowers this year both whites.
Bernadette, love the pictures. As far as brugs. I've one yellow, 3 pinks, and one white that bloomed. Jean has a good point; too hot for brugs this summer. I was delighted with the white blooming one though, hadn't had one bloomed for several year, so when it does it's such a treat.
I've pics. but my browser is blocking me from posting pics. on DG for some reason... I may not able to do so for a while 'til the bugs can be worked out...
Hummm, now I'll have to learn how to switch over to Mozilla Fire Fox...thanks Jean for the tip. I've been pretty behind on fertilizing my brugs...they require frequent fertilizer to best perform beside sun/shade issues I think.
Hi guys! I noticed they've changed the browse to choose a file.
Kim, I hope the DG guys will fix your issues .
Jean, wonderful brugs! I didn't have any luck with them, but my daturas are blooming also. I'll take some pics tomorrow.
Bernadette, love your pics, so peaceful!
Adina, thanks. I may need to update my pc. Not knowing what's really the problem is... Bernadette, I favor those white blooming brugs. Though, mine; the blossoms looks very much a carbon copy of 'Miss Emily Mckinzie' only it's white rather than pink. And MEM first appear yellow, then turn white, then finally pink. A real beauty in the hybridized brugs world.
Mine has that yellow cast to it also Burn, then pure white when open.
Bright colorful pics Adina. I agree, the tower makes a nice counterpoint.
Cool pic J...I love the small clouds scudding across...beautiful deep blue sky.
Hi Kim...wet and still a bit windy...some more rain yet to come, but the power is back on and damage is minimal...house is high and dry and no damage to it.the creek is rising, but we should still be okay...my house is about 25 feet above the creek. we fared well as the majority of stuff stayed to the east of us.Lots of folks much worse off than us, so all is good in Moonville...grin. Muddy Creek this morning...it has inundated the pond next to it.
Gosh! It's such terrible for those in low laying area. I read/heard something about the levies being broken at such and such area. Hope people in effected areas were evacuviated in a timely manner. Glad you're on higher elevation. Just look at all those raising water!
Jean, I'll be praying for you and all the people in Isaac's way to be safe. It's a relief your house is higher than the creek! Is the danger gone yet?
The sunset you posted was beautiful!
We're having drought again so I need to water a lot. Beautiful sunny days, temps are in the 90s and no wind.
Hi Adina. Kind of you to remember the folks trying to stay above water. It is raining again here...the creek has risen about 5-6 feet, but can take lots more before it becomes a problem. Now we just have to keep an eye on what flooding is north and east of us as all these waterways are connected. If the Amite river about 5-6 miles from us floods, it will backwash into Bayou Manchac and then Muddy Creek. As my Mama said...no sense in stewing over something you can't control...just do what ya can and when all else fails you...pray.
I would love to send ya some of our rain...how are Andreea and Nicholas?
The hummers must be fueling up for the long journey South there Jean. We've had some rain but nothing threatening. Thanks goodness. Like Jean, I'm thinking about you and Andrea and sweet Nicholas Adina.
Very nice Jmorth. Kim those brugs are lovely. I'm giving mine away. I need to down size, because of my health. Hopefully other will find as much delight in them as I did.
Jean, wow that a lot of hummers! Love the clouds shots before Isaac. Glad to hear you were spared of the flooding.
Adina I love the color combination of your MG, so lovely.
I went out yesterday to take a few pictures of the setting sun.
1. the setting sun hitting the trees, giving it a golden hue.
2. A little later the sky was a nice pink.
Yes, downsizing can be hard. DH has expressed interests of downsizing my tropical collection. I'm working on sorting out what I really have to have and what to let go. It's really tough. Jean, the blue flowers are that of Thunbergia grandiflora. There is an article currently discussing about the plant's genus "of many species". This particular one should be hardy on your zone I believe. In mild winter these will survive here. But I have to take precautionary-cuttings of the vine if I want to assure next year's crop. Also, luckily I've a nursery that will propagate some of these "tropicals" for me should my luck run out. lol
J. those are very interesting shots of the sky.
Ahh, thanks Kim. That one is on my list...I have an arbor that needs new friends to cover it.
As for downsizing...Isaac took away the second greenhouse and I made the decision to not replace it...I have lugged plants in and out for a decade...time to put some stuff in the ground and pass along a few that can't be planted...I think two hits (Gustav and Isaac) to the same GH are a bit of a "sign" GRIN...DH says it is...LOL
Jean, received 4" from Isaac's remnants.
I too, seriously thought about downsizing; this was the first year the heat has ever bothered me in the garden; though that's the reality of it and I should downsize, probably won't.
Nice sunsetters Burn
Riding into the sunset. (originally put 'driving into'..., but I'm the passenger, so...)
I am sure it was fairly well received... you just might have preferred to spread it out a bit. We got 18+ inches during August and are at about 7 inches into September...Now if the winds remain calm and we don't get too much more rain or wind, all should be well.
The heat has only started "getting" to me the past couple years...ah the vagaries of age...grin
Jean, so sorry for your GH, but glad you are safe! Andreea and Nicholas are OK, still in Bucharest. She would have wanted to send Nicholas to the kindergarten, but decided not to, at least not until next spring. Love the hummers!
Jmorth, same here about watering, this drought seems endless! Great pics!
Kim, I hope you won't downsize your plants, they're so lovely!
Bernadette, sorry you have to give away your brugs! I hope you're feeling well.
I have a few sunrises from last month. Since I've started work I've been so busy, but I still took some pics. I have to download them.
Hey, where's everyone? I suppose busy with gardening and canning, like I've been! I have a more time, although it's still hot outside and I still have to water. Plants and veggies are still in the garden, growing, blooming and fruiting. I think I have some pics to post here, but I need to check when I get back home from work. Waving to all!
Hi Adina, I'm still here. Not having many pics. to share, but here. Weather is pleasantly cool here. The garden is still going strong in this part of our regions in the States. Glad things are going well there. Waving back and to everyone.
Yes, a busy time of year. it has been overcast for days now, but at least i don't have to water...grin We have had a few cool mornings but they do not last long and we are back in the high 80's low 90's by afternoon. So much needs to be done outside before winter, but can't do much in the rain...This is the last decent sunset pic i have from a few days ago.
Hi Adina. Gorgeous sunrise pics...I especially like the Morning glory greeting the sun. Hope all is well with you...good thoughts to Andreea and Nicholas...hope all is well with them. Did I understand you have a new job? Or just returning to the same one after time off?
Thanks, the reds and oranges make the most spectacular photos, IMHO...grin
Wonderful sky shots everyone...I had to catch up. We took our Camper and went traveling all last month around Florida, mostly up in the panhandle. I took some shots of the sunrise and sunsets...for you all.
First two photos are on the East coast of Florida Atlantic ocean sunrise
photo 3 is in the panhandle St. George Island sunset though the tall pines over the bay
photo 4 is sunset St. Andrews in Panama City Beach over the Gulf of Mexico
photo 5 is St. Andrews lagoon sunset with boat marina
My husband took this photo of me at sunset...he was asking me how much I love Florida..."This much!"
Photo one and three are in Destin, Florida on the Gulf of Mexico.
The others are in Sopchoppy, FL on the Ochlockonee River ( kind of remind me of Lily's pond)
What a grand time that must of been for you, Sherri. Your photos are wonderful! I love the one your DH took of you with the sunset in the background. From all the photos you've posted of the Florida tour, I would have answered just as you did. :) (This much)
Kim love your lake shot, and the extended Summer you have. Our temp are in the single digit (Celsius) at night now. We did have a frost, my hostas are turning yellow. What I have blooming are Asters and mums and Rudbeckia. Those can tolerate some frost.
Great shots, Adina. You got quite a range of colors in those, beautiful.
Jean is your sunset taken before a storm? Neat shot, I like the clouds.
Sherri, wow, love the pic with you in the sunset! Great pics! Florida is everyone's idea of a perfect vacation!
Jean, I still have my old job. Kids are fine, thanks for asking. The good news is that Nicholas has no pampers anymore. He asks for the potty!!!!
Posting a link to a new album with him in the park :
Thanks for the welcome back and glad you liked the sunrises and sets. Mother nature was giving quite a show for me to photograph. It is good to be back home though and in the garden again. I tackled the passion vine and the jungle looks a bit more tamed now, today every muscle in my body feels it though.
Wow Adina, Nicholas is really getting big...he is really just adorable...glad the diapers are on the outs...always a good thing.
Kim, I love all your brug shots against the sky. My plant that my Dad gave me grew a good foot while I was gone...looks nice and healthy, but since such a baby never any flowers this year. His were all blooming like crazy this summer. Maybe next summer mine will blossom...I hope so.
Hi Margaret! Good to hear from you!
Jean, sorry for the link, it was my fault...I forgot to check the view ...now it's unlocked! Those are pictures with my DD when she was 1 and the other with Nicholas. Don't they look alike?LOL
Wowee, Adina. What a strong resemblance! It's fascinating watching Nicholas grow. He's no longer a baby.
I've given up on vegetable gardening, moon. I'm seriously thinking about getting one of those corrugated steel garden plots. I think I'd have greater success that way. Problem is, if indeed it is a problem, is that our yard is mostly shade from many, many trees. I'd have to try hard to find a patch that gets enough sun to help vegetables thrive.
Hi everyone, Sherri, it has more meaning when loved ones share their love of gardening... hope those that are given to you soon will bloom. Adina, the resemblance of mother and child is undeniable! How wonderful is that! Miracle of life!
Bernadette, hope things are going well your way too. I'm grateful of the serenity moments that we do get. But like Jean, we do see our fair shares of the stormy weather around here, even floods... Margaret, like you. My garden is too shady even for a colorful perennials to thrive. So I supplemented with container gardening on sunny spots in the backyard.
Margaret I have the same problem with the shade trees. I have tried container tomatoes and peppers so I can move them with the sun spots...but the rain killed them all off too early this year with disease. So I am at the point of giving up on vegetable gardening also. Too wet, too hot, too shady here.
Thanks everyone and hi!
Jmorth, wow, what beautiful pictures!
Margaret and Sherri, sorry for your veggies! Yet, your gardens must be beautiful with all the trees! Any pictures?
I was up early just as the sun was rising, but it was too late when I took the camera. It wasn't much of a sunrise though, no clouds,, just clear sky. Starting tomorrow we're getting rain and will miss the sun ...but only for a day!LOL
Waving to all!
Thanks. There was a short piece on the weather channel recently detailing the scientific factors that make sunset photos taken in the fall particularly colorful. It was really an interesting presentation. I should have paid more attention or taken notes.
Beautiful sunrises and sunsets everyone! Bev, I love that kaleido!
I was also interested in the program that jmorth mentioned. I looked to see if I could find a copy available on the internet and have not found one yet, but I did find this information that I thought was interesting ... http://www.spc.noaa.gov/publications/corfidi/sunset/
If I find an available video of the weather channel program, I will post the location.
Thankyou Sunkissed, good sunsets are rare in Scotland, one of the wettest parts of Europe! You can go a long time without sight of the sun here, especially in Summer - usually a washout in Scotland but other seasons have reasonable weather.
Thanks Jean, it's pretty at times it could be quite ... shall I say challenging! Like when we get flood and losing my prized Yoshino cherry tree. Hoping the storm would pass mainland and out into the Ocean.
Only mountain hares and sheep live up there! Its a wilderness area, Crieff is a small town down beneath the highland area where I walked up from. this is view from back window, hill I was on is to the left, just before it slopes down.
Oh I meant to say hi Adina, and waving hello to everyone. Adina, thanks for your concern over the last terrible storm that hit the Northeastern of our States. It left such devastation and the clean up still continue as you could see on the news. Praying for recovery for those that are affected. Luckily family and loved ones up States are safe and sound.
Hi Kim, great sunset! Prayers for those in NY and NJ . What a terrible storm!
Hi Jean! Nicholas is well, just saw him last Sunday and he is talking better, makes sentences, but in his own language!LOl
Dmersh, what a wonderful view! Thanks for sharing!
I have a foggy sunrise from last week.
Wow, I love the way the clouds seem to be "stacking" up on each other in that 3rd shot, then burst apart in the last one. neat pics Adina. Glad Nicholas is doing well and learning the "secret language of small children"...grin
It's quite difficult to catch great sunset. This is all I could ... for the evening. To top that off, sunset is wayyyyy too early in the day! Even my gardener helpers agreed with me on my frowning of the shortened day light!
Margaret, the weather has been very nice, only to turn colder in no time. Perfect to work in the garden time of year. Most decidous trees have dropped their leaves except some water oaks where they still holding on ... Jeane, how the weather up your way? Adina? J? Has it snow there yet?
That full moon reflects a mysterious sky Sherri. J. Those sure-fire sunsets are so vibrant. Welcome Val. to the thread. One beautiful setting to unwind by the pool. Do Bougainvilleas survive the winter there? Waving at Jeane and our group of gardening friends here.
The Bougainvilleas do really good here in the winter as long as it doesn't get to freezing. It has just started cooling down with a high in the sixties today. This is one of 6, but has been doing the best and has the brightest color.
Hi everyone! Great pics! I've been very busy digging in my veggie garden, but I managed to finish before the bad weather came. We have another deep freeze and snowstorm here, too early...arrgghhh!!! I just warmed up after shovelling all the snow from last night's snowstorm!LOL
But I also have some good news : we made peace with my DD and her jerk. They came over for St. Nicholas day.
Val, welcome! Love your bougainvillea!
I have a sunset from last week. And a few pics with Nicholas.
Thanks Val. for the response. Adina, Nicholas is indeed ready for the winter! Hoping you and yours the best for the Holidays to come. Hope the snow isn't as bad as it was last year.
Sunset is way too early in the day here... here is some reflection that I thought of 'Pink cloud' or fire on the horizon.
Hey, Sherri, thanks! Happy New Year everyone! Wishing you all a great year 2013, health and happiness!
I was so busy lately having the children with us during the holidays, working almost everyday. But we had a wonderful time and even went out on New Year's Eve. Here are a few pictures from the restaurant.
How did you spent the holidays?
Happy New Year to all my friends here. Sherri, I haven't made any progresses with my new camera, I'm teaming up with a friend/neighbor for a photography class coming up next month, once the Holidays excitement subsides. lol
Adina, we spent Holidays with family and loved ones, and so very grateful of all the blessings. I love the way you celebrate yours with dances and music!
DM, the sunrise picture captured over the rooftop is very nice. I saw a beautiful sunrise while in a moving vehicle on Dec. 31st morning, and missed out on making a lovely photo. Though, I had a though; what if I can move to a house that facing East instead of West where I can readily capture sunset pics. only.
Jean, some of my friends spent the Holiday in New Orleans; they said that the weather there is a little warmer than here at home. And I've forsythia blooming, and Daffodils blooming here too, so how warm can you get there? Strange weather! Though, I'm not complaining. More and more, I see living on zone 9 and above is very appealing idea where I can enjoy gardening year round.
Glad you got to spend the holidays with Nicholas, Adina.
Wow, DM...that is a LEMON yellow sunrise...nice catch that.
Kim, we are having roller coaster weather...will be in the low 70's one day, wake up and the high barely breaks 50 after a light freeze. I laugh and tell folks that I live in the Gateway to year round gardening...unfortunately, we can't close the gate to keep it warm year round. It was 40 and raining this morning and the wind was like a knife...weather man said to expect warmer temps moving in Monday night. We have had a couple nights, where the low for the night was higher than the high for that day. My dormant daylilies have died back and are starting to sprout out again...we are all confused...Christmas eve we dined on the patio in shirt sleeves...by Wednesday we had frost...So, if you decide to seek a warmer zone...go for at least 9B or higher...grin
Just a little south east of you...down around Tampa Florida or southwest to the southern most part of Louisiana would get ya there. Right now, ya wouldn't want to be in parts of Australia...my friend in Barmera posted that the temp there Thursday/ Friday was 48.6C...which converts to 118.5 degrees Fahrenheit...I don't want to be that warm either...My daughter who lives in Brisbane says they are expecting temps around 100 the first part of the week...she would be in the equivalent of zone 10b.
What a fun outing that looks, Adina. Nicholas is growing so fast.
DMersh, that sure is a golden sunrise. Love the chimneys.
Kim, it's difficult to give an exact equivalent to your US hardiness zones and that is because generally, Australia's winters are so mild. However, I think Perth would fall into the zone 10.5 equivalent, but saying that, when you see areas in Arizona and Texas, which have what seems to be endless weeks of temperature in the mid-40's (110+F), then Perth isn't like that. We have heatwaves, where for a week or more it'll be revoltingly hot, and then it will cool down for a few days. But yeah, probably about zone 10.5
Margaret, thank you; visiting Australia definately big on my wish list. Jean, both DH and I agreed that we can deal with hot weather much better than coping with cold winters. But to persuate DH to move? Nah, it isn't in my stars I don't believe. Hope things can change someday. For now, would you believe I spotted Quince in bloom? Whoa, spring will get here before we know it!
Kim glad to know you're taking a class, I'm going to take one in March with the state park close by. I play around with the new camera here and there, read a lot too.
Adina nice to see the family shots, looks like a great time.
Nice sunrise and set shots everybody. Haven't seen very many good sunsets here or sunrises.
I live in 9b and we still get freezing temps here, the lowest we've dipped this year is 35 for a few hours. But we can go all the way down to the low 20's. This year has been exceptionally warm, had at least ten days straight of low 80's. But last two nights dipped just over 40. I'm northeast of Orlando...you still need to go further south to avoid the freezes. But we're much nicer in the summer...gets way too hot down there.
Only sunset I've taken from my backyard a couple weeks ago, pretty streaks of clouds in the sky through my trees.
As you can see, I do not do cold well...BRRRR...the camera and I were both shaking...grin. the wind was blowing like crazy, but this is the first colorful sunset we have had in weeks...gonna have to use the tripod for any more cold shots...but the colors were too intense to pass up...
Hi all! Great pics everyone! It's been a weird weather here too, too warm for this time of year, but it's getting colder starting today. We're expecting rainstorm tonight and snowstorm tomorrow. We've been lucky since now because we're living in the south, but those up north have had a few snowstorms until now and will get worse today.
I haven't been able to take any sunset or sunrise pics as the sun was hidden by the clouds or by the fog lately...or I was too busy to watch the sun in the few days when it was shinning! We had the kids visiting almost every week-end and Nicholas was stuck on me all the time!LOL
Margaret, I was wondering about you when I heard what high temps you've had in Australia, but I'm glad you were OK.
Kim, congrats for the photography classes! You have to teach us now! All those blooms must be awsome!
Janet, crazy weather, isn't it? At least you had a nice sunset.
Sherri, love the strikes!
Posting 2 pics from last week when we had snow and this week when it was all gone. And one with Nicholas eating pizza.
Whoa! 10.F. degrees!!! J. What keeps you from moving Southward, just kidding? Brrrr is right Jean. I go out dressing up like eskimos in 50'ish degrees weather down here. Sherri, the cloud streaks are surely beautiful, guys thanks for your well wishes, but I haven't started the photography class yet. Adina, Nicholas is such a handsome boy! Margaret, if only our weather can be modified a bit; yours a little bit cooler, and ours a little bit warmer, then things will be ideal won't they?
Very nice indeed! J I'll send you a dmail on Spring's project--on Gloriosa lilies...
Adina, your winter seems to be a milder one compared to last year? Nicholas is such a big boy, it's a pleasure seeing his pics. Sherri, what's little winter us Southerners have got thus far, I hope that's all there is to it. I'm so ready for spring. Love that little firepit.
Waving hi to Margaret, Jean and DMersh from the UK.
I haven't any pics. of sunrise/set lately. Those among us who have good ones, please initiate a new thread? Yes, you're volunteered, and thank you.
