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!

How beautiful!!!

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. :-)

Sochi, Russia

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!

Pocahontas, TN(Zone 7b)

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.

Judy

Sochi, Russia

Thank's for advice!!! I thought to use it on my fence!

Here's something about base-jumping.

George!!!! BASE JUMPING = DANGEROUS!!! We don't want to see you splattered all over the ground.

Judy

Central, AL(Zone 7b)

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.

Sochi, Russia

Kim, I'm a sky-diver at the present time, but base-jumping is driving me crazy- that's what I would love to practice.
I've never been to rock climbing, yet, though. About wringling hands... I would've done the same. Let's better garden!
(new verb) Lol.

We have a pleasant snow blizzard tonight.

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.

North Little Rock, AR(Zone 7b)

What a picture! So beautiful, George!

Central, AL(Zone 7b)

Yep, let's garden (practical verb) I agreed with you, for I enjoy that very much.
