You can fool some of the people some of the time .
But you can't fool all the people all of the time .
This is a thread starter !!! It's not meant to be new .
It's just meant to attract attention .
You found us so it's working . lol
Ginger! I think we are about the new LIZARD THREAD. How about Reptiles' Files? Sounds cool. Huh.
We had a groop of 8 at that time hiking. I've got tons of pics.
Pep, here, I'm embracing both flat and mountain lands. It's just real fun!
It was made with a mobile phone camera, so, unfortunately, I can't enlarge it. I can give a hint, it's a megalythic culture. There are hundreds of those objects in the area near Sochi. Archeologists still do not have a clue what those were built for. I read that, some strange, allegedly, "extraterrestrial" lighting effects are sometimes observed in the area. Hm. :)
Wow! Thanks! Seems like those bus stops are used by aliens nowdays. I check it, when I go there. I might even be lucky get a cool ride in one of those alien space buses. :) :):)
The bus stops have some neat design, I would say, though.
Friedensreih Hundertwasser would envy. Lol.
Here's a spring photo from my garden - taken May 9th. Things are slowly taking off - it's only 7°C (43°F) today, still waiting to get into the 50's ;-) We're getting into the long daylight time now - sunrise was at 3:45 this morning and sunset will be at 11:04.
Hi and Welcome back rannveig
As I have said many times before ,
I just love your Pics.
It is truly amazing to compare your earlier Pics.
with the current one . Your days are really long now.
OH and I were in Narwick in 1974
and were writing letters home to PNG
At Midnight in bright sunlight .
Please share some more Pics with us now that you are back .
lol. If I remember correctly some daffs have fragrance. They are also edible. A former gardener where I work loves to eat plants from the garden that are edible. If they are edible, no matter what they are, he eats them. He especially loves violets.
The daffs have a slight scent that you don't really notice until you cut them and bring them inside ... not really a very pleasant scent in my opinion but not so strong that I'd throw them out ;-) Never tried eating them though - lol. They were on a list I saw over toxic plants - listed as irritants - so I'm not sure they'd make good eatin'. Why can't you grow them Kell - is it too hot down there for them?
I'll try and check in once in a while with photos ;-) I'm finding it very hard to find computertime now - springtime in the garden might have something to do with it. lol The list of things to do seems endless ... I'm sure that sounds familiar to all of you ;-)
Here's another one - this one was taken on May 16th just before 9 pm :-)
Love the Pond rannveig ,
I think there should be a law passed to say every garden should have a pond .
Then we can all look at each others and compare / admire .
The little bridge is a must with the pond . Yes rannveig Just to hot here for Daffs .
Carol , Jack just loves Swimming .
He spends more time in the GFP than out of it .
No law on ponds!! I am surrounded by natural ones and therefore surrounded by mosquitos and snakes and lizards. Don't mind snakes as long as I don't see them and lizards startle me when I first glance at them but as soon as I see they are lizards then it's like ok, not a snake. lol.
Mosquitos-please go away!!! I hate being eaten alive by them. If it's dusk/nighttime I get bit all over the place. It drives me insane!!
Kell I am surprised that you can not grow at least one cultivar of daffs. Our zones are not too far off and I have tons. They are heirloom southern bulbs that have stood the test of time. There are ones that do not require the cold. Check around it see if there is some in Australia you could try. I see you pushing your zone with other plants. If you can get some try choosing a cooler shaded southern exposure(I guess that's right) northern for me. You can plant them deep and they will still have some blooms. Just a suggestion.
Kell, I have some daffs that I will give you. Mine just do not get enough sun to bloom every year. They bloom about every 3 years. Stop by anytime and pluck them from the ground. ;o)
rann, there are many types of domestic ducks that are very hardy. They are very happy in very cold and wet weather and do just as well, in very hot dry weather. You may want to check and see what is best for your area.
Pep, I am always amazed at the number of people that have ducks (without a pond) and dogs in the same yard. I have been told that domestic ducks that can out think a dog and/or fly away is the type chosen. After a while, the dogs give up, the ducks are just too much trouble. I have also been told that the ducks will then act high and mighty and tease the dogs. "Nana nana na na, I'm gettin closer and you can't get me" The biggest threat is foxes, wolves, etc. So, I cannot keep them as pets either...unless they sleep in the house.
We have ppl here who have gees that act like watch dogs .
They wont let you out of the car .
And they will chase you and snap at your heels .
Then bark like a dog . But they don't come IN the house .
And they will also eat dog food .
Thanks rannveig. He does indeed have a conscience, thankfully! lol I notice if I tell him no and touch his nose with whatever he has destroyed, he won't touch it again. I can even leave him outside now unsupervised as long as the other dogs are with him.
We're making progress! lol
yep time for new slippers. He hasn't even seen the Scooby Do slippers yet!
