Judy and ye'all! I realy appreciate the marvelous community of friends as ye'all, whom I had luck to meet through DG!
It's a real joy and pleasure to communicate with Nature loving people and try to build Our Garden on the Earth and even
beyond the Earth.
I will keep sharing with you the images of Nature and Life.Lol.
It was real sunny here in St.Petersburg today!
Hi Kim! I enjoyed your pic of angel trumpets.
I'm very familiar with Trumpet Vine, which is sometimes used by people in Sochi area for decoration of fences.
I wonder if it's popular in AL as well.

Fortunately, or unfortnately we do have those campsis radicans here too. Tada! How about that? They're beautiful, I love their trumpet blooms. :-)
Kim, you mean those are sorta invasive and hard to get control of?
As for me the real annoyance in the south is that Ailanthus Altissima!
Yuck, yuck Trumpet Vine!!! We've always called it Cow Itch and it will break be out from head to toe ... but I'm not allergic to poison oak or ivy, go figure.
George!!!! BASE JUMPING = DANGEROUS!!! We don't want to see you splattered all over the ground.
How exciting that's. Just last evening we saw a clip of Base-jumping on the news. I was wondering to myself, who would want jumping out of a perfect airplane (I know, it's like the equevalent to parachuting to me), although it's more of a cliff hugger.
But then again, when I learned to rock climbing, it was an experience that no other could appreciate until you actually do it to feel the sense of accomplistment and profound self-acknowledgement and self appreciation. Ah, then it was another story when my daughter announced that she took the rock climbing class. Then I'd sit there and wringling my hands worried about her safety. lol.
LOL Geroge, is that you on youtube? LOL
When I saw the guy go into the waterfall. I was surprised. I thought "Wow! Seems like that would hurt!" Next scene is at the hospital, I guess I was right.
Yep, let's garden (practical verb) I agreed with you, for I enjoy that very much.
They had to protect the porch with chairs from those tame deers.
I have the seeds from those beautifull pines in the background. I will plant those on my Sochi ranch.
Good Morning George!!! Is it cold in your homeland? We turn that way tomorrow but I'm sure you still win hands down!!!
I'm sure you get colder than we do that's what I meant!!! Hands down means no contest!!! LOL!!!
George, your country is beautiful. So are you, I meant very attractive. Thank you for sharing your pics. with us. My husband admires the pics. that you've sent as well.
George, I was talking about you with my SIL that is from Russia ans she said that Sochi weather is not much different from ours. She leaves Tuesday for Russia, to spend Christmas with her family in Siberia.
Jeri- as I said it's not about cold at all! I love both when it's cold and when it's hot! But these shoooort days in the North in winter. I barely can stand them!
I love the Sun light! Lol.
Kim2 from AL. Thank's a lot! I will keep updating you on my country!
Kim1 from AR, say HI to your SIL. I wish her a very nice Christmas with her family in Siberia.
The widow of my American friend was born in Novosibirsk (Siberia). She is in California right now, visiting her DH's brother and his family.
George before I get totally swamped with the grands being out of school I want to wish you and your family Merry Christmas!!!
Merry Christmas to ye' all!!! And best wishes!
