I feel sorry for those up north dealing with snow and ice today




On that note, here's the same tree that looked so pretty yesterday, showing the effects of an overnight accumulation of ice from the freezing rain.



Ren, I love the snowmen! They're talented 4-year olds

That old bridge is beautiful, Peggy.

Snow, it's not very nice for the elderly or disabled of course, but it does look good!
Our cat 'Aramis' is always a good fallback subject if I can't think of anything else!

Gosh, quite a difference in those trees, Liz!! But I must say, I would love to see a bit of snow here. I just have to be content with frost - like on this leaf in my front yard this morning.

I love window-shopping when birthday/christmas comes along, and I always show Mum exactly what my nieces can buy me. And when I saw this mug ... well, it seemed to be made for me!

I won't be using it, just going pride of place on my bookcase

Thanks for the welcome.

This is a seasonal visitor to my kitchen! He came in and I took the picture quickly before he got too stressed, he is a robin redbreast who lives in the garage, he is very daring, today he tried to get into a car!

I went to the hospital to have my annual echocardiogram and ECG this afternoon and thought I would take photos of the Christmas trees in the Clinical Investigations Department and the clown of a technician struck a pose for me - rotten photo as he is rather dishy!



This is the other tree in the department.

Here is one of the many views of Kingsbury, as it's built on a very steep slope on my side of it.

Finally, with the help of Sue, Tellywellies, Taesma, and Copago (thanks, again ), I was able to work through some posting problems so that I can show this picture. It is of an old pesticide sprayer that was used for spraying the apple orchards years ago near where I grew up. These machines have been sitting in the fields for years and I never paid them any attention until recently.

That's lovely , Lisa, well worth the struggle. Maybe they are worth something as antiques?

Thanks, ren. I wondered if they were worth something as well and thought I'd do some checking.

One winter day last year at Portreath in Cornwall. About 10 miles from where we are.

interesting image, but I doubt if the old sprayer would be worth much in antique value, as old machinery usually needs to be in good condition for collectors.
There are people who love to restore such things, but it's a very time consuming and expensive business. It would certainly be nice if you could get one or more of these interested!
My image for today is a lifesize Empire Trooper 'statue' on the South Bank of the Thames in London.

Well the snow has arrived and it's here to stay. I shouldn't be surprised as we have never had a brown Christmas as long as I've been alive. (57 yrs. yikes) Today we got about 10 cm, but it could be worse just west of us they got 15-20 cm. Here's a shot out my front window.

Great shot, Lynn!

I love all that snow, Argus! I'm sure it's prettier when you're inside than when you're out.

Picqero, interesting photo of the Stormtrooper, but I must say his neck is exceedingly long! Wonder what happened to him?

Vendome's sad thread about his poor dog has made me nostalgic for my sweet Tess. This photo was taken nearly a year ago, about 1 month before we had to have her put down. She was the ornerist, but most loveable dog ever.

Here's shot of the Rudolph cupcakes we decorated last night for my son's snack day at school today. This was snapped just before I added the dots on the eyes. They were a huge hit with the kids and the teachers!

Lyn, just spied your feathered friend. Love him! How is it that he came to reside in your carport? We had a bird for a short time when he and his sib were found outside my door one July evening. I nursed him and tried to release hime but I guess he thought of me as his mom because I'd set him free and he'd fly right back to me. Luckily we found a couple who wanted to take in a sparrow and they drove five hours for him. To this day he's alive and kicking in Orange County, NY and we get a Christmas card from them every year!

He is wild but comes in when he feels like it---at risk to life and limb as we have several dogs and a cat! Robins are known for being cheeky and he runs true to form.
Well done on rescuing yours, I have never had much luck rearing birds.

I think that's great that he comes to visit. It's a testament to you that he feels safe enough to return despite the danger he faces with the furry kids. You must have great food!

A pair of cottages in Hampstead garden Suburb, one the original colour and one white, in fact they were nearly all painted white but a few were left. I like them both.

Ooh, that's a great photo, satguru. Somebody suggested "opposites" on the theme suggestion page, and that fits the bill! I like them both too - really love the blue door on the white one.
