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...

Hey Jean, great start. I love that shot. Thanks for starting it.
This poor little tree survived the clear cutting done on this patch of land. I needed to do it justice with a sunset background.

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.

It has these really old stone painted stories on the walls

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.

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

Moon I remember seeing a documentary on Ayer's rock awhile back on TV.

Adina, nice to see Nicholas getting long legs and boyish looking, and a nice crop of cherry tomatoes you have. Good he likes to eat them too.

DMersh, those are wonderful! Nice you had a chance to see a great sunset and I must say one heck of a fantastic sunset.

Burn pretty shots of the sherbet sky, like the lining along the clouds.

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.

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

The Phoenix

Deep in the study
Of eugenics
We find that fabled
Fowl, the Phoenix.
The wisest bird
As ever was,
Rejecting other
Mas and Pas,
It lays one egg,
Not ten or twelve,
And when it's hatched it,
Out pops itself.

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). ^_^

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.

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.

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...

Thanks Jean, Kim and Adina.
Great pics Adina, I like the third one a lot. I usually don't care much for power lines, but in your pic the tower make a nice accent against the colorful sky.

On the same night as the others above.
The brug seems to be yellow before it open, but it is white.

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.

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?

But, the humming birds were out early for their morning aerial duels. I wasn't surprised by the quiet sunrise...the sunset last night was a quiet disappearance ...

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

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

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

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

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.

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.

Thanks Burn.That pic was not directly before bad weather, but it became overcast for the next couple days and then rained off and on for the next 4 days.. How is the downsizing going?

Margaret, I would imagine you are busy with all things Spring right now. Are you doing a vegetable garden?

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.

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.

Burn, you have such a short summer - lucky you!

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.

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.

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.

This is typical sort of Scottish weather...

Kim, what a nice catch, I love when clouds are pink and streaking across the sky like that. You have to be quick to get the camera because they don't last long.

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.

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.

Happy New Year everyone!

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!

J, lovely photos of sunset. The first one does look cold but peaceful. How much snow have you gotten so far?

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.

Only a few inches so far Kim. The temperatures have been cruel, but normal for here. It's 10 now.

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?

Doesn't every child and adult just love pizza. What a cute pie.

I agree on the weather, seemed like winter arrived much later this year. We had some cool days with a bit of morning frost, but looks like we're warming back up again.

moon you are too funny, and brrrrr is so right. I'm cold at 50 degrees.

Sunset progression the other night, and the last photo was where I watched it from.

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. ^_^
