Good morning guys! I've been busy this week. The kids were here on week-end and I had a wonderful time with Nicholas who got stuck on me the second he saw me!LOL We played a lot, went out and cleaned the MG's dry vines from the fence. He loved to see the black seeds coming out from the dry pods. I even made him sing a bit of the kids spring song "Here comes Spring!(Vine, vine primavara!)". This might be true because my snowdrops are popping up! I talked to Cici and told him that we'd better bring Nicholas alone over on week-ends so we won't have to see the jerk so often. I told Andreea and she was about to ask me the same for this week-end...so they're bringing Nicholas tomorrow and we'll drop him off on Monday morning. I had an article to finish until Tuesday, then I had to cook and bake, or do laundry.

Kim, weather has been warmer than usual and nice, but it's getting cold again tonight. It rained a lot last night, but I prefer that than snow. Shoot, it's snowing now, more like sleet!

Sherri, what wonderful sunset pics!

I have a few sunrise pics from a few days ago and also more pics with Nicholas :

Great pics. Adina and J. Look at those pics.! They share the same common coloration, very nice. Jean, in our regions Spring is timidly showing its beauty. We're experiencing--hopefully the last cold-front currently. Temp. is in the mid 30'ish F. ouch! Although I've seen some 70'ish last few weeks. No sun rise/set pic. from me yet. Just drop in to say hi and wishing everyone Happy Spring.

Sherri, lol with you about the hubs. Happy belated BD's and wishing him many more.

Hi Kim. Same thing here...gorgeous weekend with low 70 temps and then rain and barely out of the 50's Monday. Things started to leaf out a couple weeks ago...just in time for that sudden drop to 28...shocked the leaves right off some stuff...I personally have had more than enough of the cold.

Good to see everyone wandering back in again.

Even my plants were fooled Jap magnolias all budded and bloomed, daffs popped up Brugmansias in the ground started sprouting along with every thing else...bam! dropped down to 28 and everything shrieked...any way, the garden and I are starting again. Happy Spring...ummm Happy when ya get here Spring Grin

Hah! Jean, I think Puxatawney Phil fell down on his job this year. lol Many saucer magnolias around our neighborhood have been affected due in part because Phil said "Spring is early this year", then mother nature brought the cold front back to prove him wrong, lol. Luckily, ours was fine being near the water... Adina, the small flowerbed in the front yard is one of my spring time's delight. I worked on making/replanting the bed every Fall, and rip the reward this time of year with all those blossoms.
Keep those pics. coming everyone. I may not have time to post pics. but I do visit our thread often.

Hi all! It's been awhile since I posted here. How have you all been? I've been gardening a lot, Easter cleaning...BTW, today it's our Easter, lots of goodies are waiting for me back home...yes, I'm at the office today, yuck! I also have a new doggie who came on our field, pregnant and gave birth in one of my dog houses. Poor puppies died all of them, but I took the Mom inside my yard. Gave her a name, Minnie and she is feeling better everyday. She was scared at first, but not anymore. Especially since Nicholas came over with his Mom and Dad. They came over for Easter last Thursday and will be here until Tuesday.
Posting some pics with the sunrises I saw lately and with Minnie.

Hi Margaret. How are things in Perth? Has it gotten cooler yet?

Great pics J...nice color...and I love "sunbeams" in the clouds.

Stormy sky Adina...nice. The other dogs aren't sure they want a new housemate? Poor Minnie, she must have been on her own for a while...or her owners dumped her because she was gonna have puppies...either way, I am sure she will have a much better life with you and Nicholas.

Bravo on the rain Margaret. Seems like things have been on the dry side in parts of NSW...a friend in Merino gets excited every time she sees a dark cloud...but only gets a mm or two. I understand the mosquitoes in Antarctica are the size of birds and number in the millions...year round...may wanna rethink that...grin

J, Polaris is just beautiful...such a sweet face.

Adina...Minnie looks like she is making herself right at home.

Hi Adina

Thanks...we are treating for the heart problem and she is taking a thyroid supplement and steroid to see if that helps the situation. At this point, since Sophie is 12 and has heart problems there is little more we can do...we talked with an oncologist...he was not very encouraging as says she is not candidate for surgery given age and heart...and frankly was 50-50 on radiation/chemo...at this point, given the prognosis, her age and health, not to mention the enormous expense of a "maybe" fix and the quality of life with radiation/chemo ( she is in her 80's in human years) we are doing palliative care for her.

Poor girl! Must be so hard for her, but also for you to see her like this. You are doing the right thing for her.
On a positive note, since we've been talking about getting a new dog, I have a good news : we're getting a new dog, and I mean A DOG!!!!! Remember our neighbor's giant dog Fira, the Romanian Shepherd whom I have been dogsitting when they were on vacation? Well, miss Fira has puppies, and hang on, they are 12!!!!!! She gave birth 2 days ago and all are feeling well, mother and puppies. We still don't know how many girls and how many boys because Viorel, our neighbor is exausted after not sleeping while watching Fira giving birth and now watching her eat, do her business...his parents are here to help, but Fira doesn't want anyone near except him. She even bit his Mom pretty badly from the hand, before giving birth and now the poor woman is afraid to get close to Fira again. Yesterday when Fira was out in the yard Viorel's Mom took a puppy to enjoy a bit. When Fira came back in, she went straight to her...lucky Viorel yelled at his Mom to close the door to her room and stay in there...uh!
Therefore, Viorel asked me yesterday if I agree to submit myself to an "experiment", as he named it...meaning if I would want to go at his place and face Fira in the room where she's staying with the puppies...I think he thought I would say no, but how could I say no when I just love Fira and most of all, the 12 PUPPIES!!!!!!!!LOL Only I told him to let her calm down and relax a bit, get accustomed to her new job, as a Mom. In a few days, or maybe sooner, I would be happy to come and see if Fira would want to hurt me too or not.
The reason for which Viorel wants me to do his "experiment" is obvious, because his Mom can't take care of Fira anymore, at least for now, and he and his wife are going on vacation next month, so someone has to take care of the doggies. I'm confident that Fira won't get mad at me, but I won't know unless I try.
I can tell you how anxious I am to see the puppies, especially now that we're going to have one of them! Cici is so excited about this, he has been wanting a shepherd dog for a long time. Only I told him that I don't want to hear anything about not having money for the dog, even this might mean to make some sacrifice.
Meanwhile, Minnie is making herself at home. She has started to play with the ball and became more confident. She got used to the leash and collar and even walks when she has the leash on. I gave her treats every time I would put the collar on her and then when I took it off, so I kinda trained her a bit!LOL
I made a video with her running and playing and more pictures too , here :

Yes, and Fira acts like any of us when we first had our babies. She's allert when going out, stands still to listen...if she doesn't hear any noise from the pups, she goes to do her business. Made me remember how me and DH slept on the first night after I came home with Andreea from the hospital...it's hilarious now, but back then every noise she would make was a tragedy!LOL

I get to pet lots of doggies when doing my morning walk and if one ever showed up on my doorstep and needed a home, I'm sure I could oblige.

Oh how nice Kim, and you got a sunset bloom. The first photo is really great. I've seen those Ric Rac cactus but never realized they had such a nice bloom...Shoot, would've bought one if I knew that.

You're really tempting me to come to the dock by the bay, Sunsets, margaritas and crawfish...it all sounds soooo great to me right now.
I have lots of cats eating my plants bare, so I'd bring them on up too and they can start on your plants. First time I've seen the monarchs actually eat the giant milkweed, last year they didn't touch it. I cut the tall lanky stalks off and shoved them into a pot of soil and all of them rooted and sprouted leaves right away. So a very good propagator.

Margaret, my hubby and I are both hoping to get to the Perth side of AU on one of our visits...the furthest west so far has been Uluru/Mt Conner and north to Daintree/Port Douglas..and of course south to Sydney. Since our daughter is in Brisbane we have seen quite a lot of Queensland. Looking forward to one day sharing a meal with you.

Kim...nice picks. In Fall of 2011 I had to dig up some Crinum asiaticums...I didn't know where I wanted to plant them, so stuck them (about 12-14 large bulbs) in a nurdery container that I poured about 3 inches of soil into...set the bulbs in and added maybe 4 inches of additional soil. I carefully tucked it behind the greenhouse in my makeshift holding area...uncovered space. Long story short...I forgot them. They have been there for almost 2 years...quite happy growing and a couple have bloomed...I think yours should do quite well in containers...oh, not roots escaped the pot...it was sitting on a couple cinder blocks...

I'll look up the mentioned asiaticums, I've a dark pink crinum called 'whatchumacallit' lol, its name sorta escaped me. Oh wait, wait, it's called 'Ellen Bouquet' I think. It bloomed for me in container before, then I found a spot with good enough sun light so it has been happy there for me. I've this tender crinum (I tried one out in the garden before, and frost killed it). So I've a big pot of it that I have to haul indoor every Fall.

Ready? Here is 'Queen Emma' I saw so many of these in Hawaii when I visited the Island 3 years ago. The 1st pic. is the flower bud; it's huge. Then when the inflorescent unfurled these pics. were taken middle of August last year.

Yes, weeping willow it's. Jean, we planted that a few years back. The 1st one we tried, hubby topped the main leader off and it died. We replaced the tree which was about 7-8 feet tall then. Ever since then, Jim was reluctant to even prune the branches. Willows do well by the water... I'm glad it brought back some nice memories of your Aunt India. Oh, I've a plumeria named India. When it blooms, I'll dmail you a pix.

Check out the pink plumeria tree, no freezes there, like here in Central FL. there were so many in so many colors. The last is a purple allamanda bush, just awesome, the pic not so great because it was so sunny. I also couldn't walk into the yards to get good photos, they'd probably throw mangoes at me for being a trespassing tourist. LOL.

Hi Sherri, thanks goodness. The bad weather by passed us, just some turned over ornamental containers.
The sunrise isn't as spectacular this morning, and yes it returned to be hot and humid. However, the birds are back out, a tranquil morning.

HI everyone! Sorry I've been MIA for so long. I was on vacation, besides working hard in the garden. We went to the beach this year, in Eforie Sud, a nice resort on the Black Sea coast of Romania.
We've never been to this resort before, but we knew it was a quiet little town, where mostly older people went for mud baths treatment. Nowadays the resort has grown, new buildings were built for receiving tourists and most of them are children in the camp or with families. We went there thanks to Petre, Andreea's DH who is working as a chef in a small restaurant. We decided quickly after he told us that one of the landlords who owned a small hotel near the restaurant had vacancy rooms. We are lucky to have any vacation paid by our institution, which means we were at the beach for free!
The weather was great, just the first day was cloudy, which was good for my skin, but the rest of the days were hot, with full sun. The sea had huge waves at the beginning, but then it calmed down. I played almost everyday with Nicholas in the sand and in the sea because Andreea couldn't stay too much in the sun and in the water, but I enjoyed every minute of it! Hurray! Our little man was afraid of the huge waves, but after the sea calmed down he was brave enough to enter all by himself in the sea.
The food was very good at the restaurant, all cooked by Petre.
This was our hotel called " Andreea". The view from the balcony. The sea and the beach.

Adina what lovely vacation pictures, and pretty water at that beach, glad you enjoyed your vacation. I just got back from the beach also, it was pretty darn hot, the first week we had some nice afternoon showers, but second week hottest temps so far this summer, mid to upper 90's and NO Rain...I was actually glad to get back to my shady oak trees. ☺

Some of my sunrise and set pictures, with no clouds they are pretty boring...we are on the east side of FL so the sun rises over the ocean but when the sun sets on the west side of FL we get pretty pink skies.

We're OK, the winter is very warm this year. Actually these days it's like spring!
Nicholas is almost 4...in May, but now we have the other Grandson, Andreas , who is now 3 months old. I was so busy, although they are not staying with us, but we've been visiting pretty often. They were here for the holidays. Here are some pics.
I hope you and everyone are well.

Hi Adina, there's no mistaking that you've got a couple of boys there. How fascinating watching Nicholas grow.
We've had a couple of heat waves over in the west. Last week we had 44C and we're expecting 38 today and another run of heat during the coming week. 56 homes were destroyed by fire in the hills last weekend (I'm on the coast). Victoria, which is a couple of thousand km east of us has been having the worst of it, with temperature up to about 46. South Australia has also been copping it. Summer is not pleasant any more. I remember when we were kids a 30C day was considered hot. Now, 30C is "very pleasant".

Margaret, I hadn't heard about the fires, that is horrible. This is certainly one very strange weather year. It has been a warm winter here until these past three weeks and now making up for it. This morning a frosty 34F...we had many days in the mid 80's in December so the garden thought it was spring already.

Sherri, weather events worldwide seem to be whacky. I saw on the news a couple of days ago that there are persistent fires in ? Los Angeles (California, anyway) that are now considered part of the natural environment. Scary, if that's the case.

When you get a warm early winter like that and the plants think it's spring and react accordingly, then when winter returns for real the plants have no way of protecting themselves.

Hey, Kim! Thank you. Sorry for the bad weather and for Jim and his co-workers starnded at work.
Since my last post we had a blizzard (on week-end) and now we're having another one, more powerful.
We had difficulties getting out of our street at first, but then the plower came and cleared it. Now it's all drifted again, but I left the car at the end of the street so we can still go to work and we're walking to our house through the drifts. We just came home now and we're beat...we meaning me and my DH. It's still snowing and the blizzard gets more powerful every hour, so tomorrow we have the day off. They said the blizzard will still blow until tomorrow at noon...grrrr! We have drifts higher than the ones I just cleared yesterday so, by tomorrow we might be buried in snow again, like 2 years ago. We have power and heat, enough food, so we're good.
Posting a few pics with Minnie, our doggie, and the snow.

Thanks Margaret for the 'warmth' offer. This winter storm could be as bad as one we had back in 1993, back then the snow quickly melted, not with this time because the unusual cold kept the snow from thawing, if anything they froze solid, it's almost noon and it's barely reaches 12F. degrees. Icy road made it dangerous for travelers!

In time of need, there is good news: The communities are pulling together and sent out help for people got caught off guard out there. Just heard from Jim, one of his coworker braved out the road roughly an hour ago. Only he returned because the road is still impassible.

Hi Kim, long time no chat. I've been watching all that snow/ice up there, even closed schools in the panhandle of Florida...how about that? The lakefront does look brrrr cold. Do hope everyone gets to their homes safely, but better to stay put than get on dangerous roads. It is rainy cold here today too, yesterday I was working in the garden in shorts and it was 80 degrees, right now it is 45...and they say by Sat. back to 80.

Adina, Minnie sure seems to love that snow, love the pictures, sure is a lot of snow.

The wind has calmed down, but it started to snow again. A plower came and cleared the road this morning. It's gorgeous outthere, but very cold. It's 19F right now and forecasted 0F tonight. The good news is that it'll start to warm up on Saturday.

Glad the rain has stopped in your part of the world, Adina. They sure were devastating floods. It takes many years for recovery to start showing in country areas.

Sunkissed, ... I would go out late at night during Heat Lightning. --- Set up my tripod, set my camera's lens to infinity towards the storm cloud, set the aperture to about 6.5 and the shutter speed to 30 seconds, then hit the the shutter button and wait to see how many little lightning strikes I captured on that photo.
It works pretty good, all while getting bit & chased by mosquitos non stop, stepping on prickly burrs on my bare feet, and sweating like a hog, LoL.
I once went out late at night around 12:00am to photograph Heat Lightning while bare-footed.
I stepped on something sharp, I jumped about 3 feet in the air and screamed out loud because I thought a snake might of bit my foot. I only stepped on a prickly weed was all. Made a complete arse outta myself !

'Heat Lightning clouds' happen around here at night, maybe 3 to 5 times during the hot summer months.

I would take about 12 photos like that in one night, one after another, then take my camera, fall onto my couch from exhaustion & from sweating and look through the photos. I would maybe get about 2 to 3 ok shots from that outing, lol.

Photo # 1 ... A shroom-shaped cloud in Florida, lit-up by lightning at night.

Sunkissed, lol, yeah footwear advised at night time :]
The reason for the long exposure setting, like 30 second or 15 seconds, is so you get more chances of catching a lightning strike. Need to set aperture to about 6.5 - 7.0 if lens is set t0 18mm- 50mm, or aperture set to 4.5 to 6.0 for lens set to 55mm to 80mm. And it must be dark out, no sunlight, or your photos will turn out overly bright or over exposed. Must use sturdy tripod when using long exposures when it is dark out. Complicated yes, but I've been doing this for several years though. I'm not a good at explaining things either too, lol. Sorry about that :]

Sunkissed, oooo you get to go to the beach, lucky Woman you :] (I mean that in the nicest way).

My Maine Coon does loves his sleep time. I sold that image of him on a couple products.

Here is another lightning shot taken lastnight while I was sweating like a hog and smelling like bug spray... (it is kind of blurry, the clouds were moving too fast and I also need more practice at it) ...

I had a Maine Coon cat that lived quite a long time, her name was Whiskey and I got her when I was 14 years old, when living in Mass. She went across country with us to CA and then moved again across country in the back of a camper shell pick-up with a dog to FL. She was almost 20 when she finally died.

Sunkissed... Oh my Goodness! Your Maine Coon lived to almost 20 years??!!!!!! Oh my Gosh, I hope mine will live that long, he is soo amazing and loving and a dork.
You sure did travel and move alot.

Awwe, Glad you think my photography info is good enough to print-out :]

If ya ever have questions just ask. But night time and lightning photography is really tough.
You rock and hope you are doing well, hugs.

LOL LoveForests. No of course you didn't kill it. Sometimes it goes into dormancy for a while. Gorgeous shots you've posted.

Those are beautiful shots LoveForests, the last is a very nice silhouette.

Margaret is right this thread does go awhile without any post. I don't get sunrise/set photos unless I go on vacation. I do have some in my camera I'll download eventually.

I saw lots of lightning while at the beach but didn't capture it, since it was not heat, but real wicked stuff.

Thank You so much to you all. I appreciate your comments.

Sunkissed, ... Yeah it is hard to capture lightning unless it is Heat Lightning at night (heat lightning is safer too).

Adina, lovely sunset sky shots :]
I hope very much you enjoy your vacation.

Margaret, thank you. We went to Eforie Nord, a resort on the Black Sea coast, in Romania. Our son-in-law is working there for the summer, so we went there with the grandkids and my daughter.
