Hummingbirds at the feeder at my moms house. The sun was just minutes from going down. It was such a beautiful sunset, too. I'll try to post that one tomorrow.

I had a great day trip to Nansha, China yesterday. I have not really had time to choose from the photos I took. So here's for something completely different.
Grandma's cameo.

My friend and I took a drive around 'the county' today, and one of the shops we visited in Bloomfield has a pretty amazing garden. It took a couple of tries to get a shot of this butterfly, but he liked this flower, so eventually I was successful!

Agree! That is beautiful, Liz!

Today we're doing some shearing of the sheep that somehow missed at at the real shearing a couple months ago and it's the first we've seen of the spring lambs. They aren't really 'due' until next week. The one in the middle and the one on the right would be a couple days old but the one on the left was born this morning. It was still wet when we picked it up getting the sheep in the yard (ewww ). So cute, so small and such a tough little animal.

Patience is rewarded Liz. Good photo!

Whenever I see lambs I always think of Larry the Lamb. He was in 'Toytown', a radio programme when I was a boy. He used to say, "Mister Mayor Sir" in a 'baa-ing' lamb-like fashion . Some things you never forget.

Here's a water-side pub just up the road from where we live:

Nice photo of the butterfly Liz. Those lambs look adorable and that is a great shot of the pub TW.

This is one of North America's most adaptable critters, the Raccoon.



From the wild to your garbage can at the back of the house you will find this fellow can survive anywhere.

Whenever I see images of racoons, I always think of Davy Crockett hats - "shame" I hear many of you say! They are adorable in their own way though.
This is a plant, quite rare nationally but not uncommon round here if you know where to look. It's a 'southern marsh orchid', which needs impoverished soil to grow, so does well on old industrial sites.

TW, the pub photo is beautiful. It looks so peaceful there.

Raccoons always look cute to me, but I live three thousand miles away from them. If I had them hanging round my backyard I’d probably think of them as vermin, like pigeons and seagulls.

I remember Davy Crockett hats too, picqero. I had a rough and ready one made by my mother. Much of my last year at primary school was spent in fights with kids who made fun of my home-made Davy Crockett hat (the rest of the time was spent fighting lads who said that Tom Graveney didn’t deserve a place in the England cricket side).

Lovely sunset photo, ClaraSue.

I haven’t been anywhere today, so here’s another pic from my London file. This Victorian drinking fountain on Cheyne Walk, Chelsea, commemorates the Pre-Raphaelite painter and poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti, who lived at No 16 in the 1870s.

In 1995 I returned to the bungalow estate I lived on until I was 5. Here is a garden on the corner of my old road, and the hydrangeas opposite in our old house also appear to be there 42 years after we left.

Wow,
It is very pretty and seems to be real clean. I have a lot of pics to post but I need to figure out how.

It isn't difficult - just read the thread Tellywellies posted about how to do it, it is anchored near the top of this forum.

The child next door thinks he is David Beckham and presumably my greenhouse is the goal! My greenhouse is as far from their house as is possible but he manages to break panes of glass on a very regular basis. He smashed two last week.

Wow, ClaraSue, that makes me almost miss New Mexico.
I still think it has the most spectacular sunsets I've ever seen anywhere. Sunrises are nothin to sneeze at either.

Sue, does the glass-breaking would-be Beckham ever pay for replacement glass or acknowledge his destructive aim?

This picture is from tonight at Knoebels, an amusement park in north-central Pennsylvania. It's just the best -- free admission (pay by the ride or buy a pass), great coasters, carousels, a coal-fired train, calliopes, great park food, nice employees, plenty of shade, creeks, relatively low prices... I could (and do) go on and on about Knoebels. Did I mention there are lots of rides? Dogs are allowed in to the park, too, and they seem to really enjoy it.

I played a round of this Derby Race and won!
