Snapped this while on vacation last week - the morning was very chilly and this bee was "stuck" on the flower.

Here's some track for Professor and Satguru's trains. A well know junction.

djsgal, SOTHC may be referring to the school of thought that according to some, if one hoof is raised, the rider was injured in battle, if two hooves are raised, the rider died in battle. However, Snopes.com declares that is completely false. The instances that Snopes refers to are all U.S. examples though. The rumor still goes on.

Or, he could have said it tongue-in-cheek....




Ah, of course, Jar - I've read his witty comments on many other threads! So hard to get that *sarcastic* tone online.

A peaceful scene on the Lea Navigation canal, about 5 minutes walk from my home.

Beetles having dinner



I wonder what those bugs are; certainly not 'gardeners' friends'!
Could they be related to these ?

The bugs are Japanese beetles - they appear here around the 4th of July and we put out traps for them to keep them from eating the tree leaves.

Here they are.

Great photos, although I have to agree, those 'flats' are just plain ugly.
Love that shot of the bee, cinnam0n. Japanese beetles are a gardener's bane around here too. They are such destructive bugs!

I've dealt with those beetles too this season, they've all but destroyed my small maple bush out front. Next year I will be ready for them.



Last week I was in Corolla, NC in the Outer Banks and we went into Currituck Lighthouse. Here is a view of the down-shot from where I stopped climbing. There are 219 steps in all but after realizing the stairs were open-backed and see-through underfoot I stopped climbing after about 55. I have such a terrible fear of heights! My son on the other hand went all the way to the top and stepped outside!

There we were , cinnam0n, walking through woods on opposite sides of the world. This is Gloucestershire.

Another shot of the same woods

BurgGurl, Just looking at that picture had my heart pounding and my palms sweating - I have a horrid fear of heights in open spaces. Then I read what you wrote ie open-backed and that was it for me! I commend you for getting up 55 of them.

What a neat thought, ren.

These cuties are therapy dogs. A friend has trained them to dance, sing, cuddle, and do all kinds of things! They visit Ronald McDonald houses, senior homes, and stay at homes. They are quite remarkable. They all came to her home as rescue dogs.

What gorgeous dogs - just looking at them makes me smile! Therapy dogs are wonderful animals. My father's family has one - Seamus - and in his eight years he has visited numerous hospitals, nursing homes and schools; he is a big hit with everyone everywhere he goes. My father was his handler and when he died a few years ago that ended Seamus' therapy days. Sad thing is now poor Seamus has gone blind and save for rides in the car, he spends most of his time at home where he knows the layout of the house and feels safer.

bhs, How sweet do they all look?
BurgGurl, I'm so sorry to hear that about Seamus, but at least he helped hundreds, probably many more, people feel better by 'sharing himself' with them via your father.

'Walking through the woods' could make an interesting theme, though it might have to include cycling too .
This is one of the many miles of tracks in our local woods, with conifers on one side of the track and deciduous on the other.

That's one place I've found to be similar all over the world, shots of woods. Anywhere in the temperate zones has the same sorts of trees, at least from a distance.

Here's another cottage in Hampstead Garden Suburb, quite unlike any others I've seen.

There's some restoration work going on on one of the older buildings downtown.



Snapped whilst waiting for the bus this afternoon.

Gorgeous, Twodeez. And Piqero's #1017997. I love reflection pictures.
And puppy pictures! Those dogs are all adorable. satguru could've put the cottage with the lovely red door in the weekly pix thread.

I can further the walk into the woods.

We've dodged Hurricane Hanna here. We did start to see the very outer bands today. Now we're waiting to see what Hurricane Ike is going to do.
