Here's the new planting opposite yesterday's house. I couldn't put that one in doors though as we can only add one per week.



You can see the window in the left corner.

I've jumped back a few months with this photo, taken in June this year. The tram system in Warsaw is excellent, easy to use, and about 15 times cheaper than London for a day ticket!

I suppose they are, but they are double carriage and do carry a lot of passengers.
There's a single seat on each side, and plenty of standing room. Trams have to use the same roads as cars, trucks, and buses, so there is limited room in the central area of the road - which is of course reserved for them - so they have to be fairly narrow.
They also have to negotiate right and left turns across the normal traffic flow, so have to be flexible too.
Sometimes idiot car drivers get stuck in heavy traffic across the tramlines, which creates delays, and I believe invites prosecution.
They're a brilliant form of transport though, and definitely one of the many 'fun' highlights of a visit to Warsaw

Another "Walk Through the Woods" photo to add to the collection, this one was taken while walking some trails in the foothills of Westmoreland County Pennsylvania.

BurgGurl,
Was that taken recently? The reason I ask is all the fall colors in the trees. Very peaceful photo.

Nope, it was probably taken about three years ago while I was visiting my in-laws, but I could take one just like it again in a few weeks if I make it home again. I agree that it was quite relaxing, especially when I closed my eyes and listened to the sound of the creek passing by.

North Carolina tabacco field. This is a beautiful plant. Just wish the plants would have been blooming.

Being a Pennsylvanian I knew instantly - He's a Groundhog!

Beautiful Delphiniums by the way Picquero!

BurgGurl,
Thanks for the answer to my question. I love fall, but also hate to think that summer is almost over and cold is on it's way.

picqero,
You might be interested in knowing that the most famous groundhog of all also lives in Pennsylvania. His name is 'Punxsutawney Phil' and on Groundhog Day which is observed in America and Canada, February 2nd, a shadow of Punxsutawney Phil means six more weeks of winter, and no shadow means spring is around the corner. This is quite a famous bit of folklore for us, though not too scientific.

I agree, what a vibrant blue the delphiniums are!

Just like Punxsutawney Phil! Very cute groundhog

As always, all the pictures everyone's been posting are really very nice.

My sister and I were out for a drive in the country last week, and found ourselves having to go very slowly for awhile behind this machinery. Passing was not an option!

A (not very good) close up of the Phalaenopsis(Orchidee) I keep in my dining room.



Hard to get a good pic without the supporting stick for these lanky flowers.

Gary, the carving on that stature must be amazing to see. One could probably check it out for hours. Exotic orchid twodeez, beautiful colours. Fantastic fall foilage Burg girl, a walk there must be very rejeuvenating for the soul.



Sunrise over Departure Bay in Nanaimo, this week. It is about 5 minutes from my home.
