0823/23rd October 2021 Because I've enjoyed it so much, I captured these images of my wildflower garden yesterday morning. With temperatures dropping I have been keenly aware that my cheerful flowers would soon be gone. Late in the day Grant spotted a new bird outside. Not new, just one that has been long absent. It … Continue reading Not snow, though…
It's a little hard to grasp, but any minute now the Christmas card detail will have to commence. It's really early, I know, but we are constantly being told that everything is moving much more slowly these days and I have always made a practice of dispatching overseas cards no later than Thanksgiving. Usually I … Continue reading Fantasy
October 20th 2 minutes from home There seem to be pages of photographs arriving on my computer just lately and I'm beginning to be overwhelmed by them! And I find that my new iPhone has quite a reasonable photographic capability which is a welcome bonus except that I will need to learn how best to … Continue reading Tough topic
1851/19th October 2021 The above photograph was taken using my new Celero 5G phone. Never heard of it? Neither has anyone else, it seems. It arrived on Sunday and I spent most of Monday contemplating it, reluctant to take the plunge. When I did, the stumbling block I came upon was not one I would … Continue reading Ahead of the game?
0740/17th October 2021 This was yesterday. I'm still on a time lag and today I am officially procrastinating because, guess what.... My new telephone arrived yesterday (yes on a Sunday, they really didn't need to rush on my account). It's been sitting on my desk where I have been observing it with suspicion. . It's … Continue reading Daisy
0725/16th October 2021 Rain held off this morning just long enough for me to attend to my sickly lilac bush, that may now give up the ghost completely, or hopefully recover next Spring from its awful trauma of 2019. It might have been a good idea to look up some information before blundering out with … Continue reading The end?
0705/15th October 2021 At the rate I'm going, I shall never catch up. Most mornings I race about, taking more photographs which I then take an age to download and edit. That's after I've read through all the blogs I follow. Today I also made a diversion into online searching for shoes aimed at neuropathic … Continue reading Versatile !
1820/14th October 2021 At the end of a thoroughly gloomy day, suddenly distant clouds caught the setting sun and came alight, very briefly. Though the heavy overcast persisted. All day I'd been hearing geese calling as they passed overhead, hidden by heavy cloud. Just as night was falling I heard them again and there they … Continue reading Futzed up…
Around 5 pm yesterday, the sun suddenly broke through, bathing all in golden light At 7 am, trees materialized at the bottom of the lower field as if behind a scrim, while beyond the valley was once more cloaked in a thick curtain of fog. A weather alert on my not-so-smart and soon-to-be-replaced phone caused … Continue reading Bad advice?
Salvia, of sorts and anonymous flying insect Look who showed up today, hiding in one of my photographs. Mr. Green. He's been busy, inviting his friends to enjoy my fantastic wildflower garden: Poppies are a special hit But daisies are acceptable as well: Poppy petals reminded me of a flared skirt There's something very appealing … Continue reading Return of Mr. Green
