--Looks wonderful bhs, so many places to go. So little time.

I call this one "Defiance" The little clump of leaves hanging on means winter can't really come. (-8

Beautiful photo bhs. Where was it taken?




I was in a dugout canoe off the Carribean Coast of Panama in the San Blas archipelago.




Of course. So obvious.

That just sounds so romantic and ti's a beautiful photo

Ha! Love the golf course, Copago! Awesome clouds, bhs, that must have been a great day. Tredici, when I first saw your photo, I thought it was a bird in the tree, . Great name for the photo.

Another shot from my weekend in Charleston. We went to the aquarium and saw these jellyfish. There must have been a blacklight in the tank, surely they're not this color always.

Super jellyfish photo!

About a month ago I posted a photo of a rose in my garden, thinking it was quite late. Well, this one isn't quite open, but the photo was taken today, and it obviously doesn't know it is November! The weather has been absolutely spring-like the last few days and I have been taking advantage by going for long walks.

The jellyfish pic looks like something you'd find in a scientific journal.

That jellyfish is such a cool photo, CS!

Here is an emu and chicks - not a great photo. I did ask them to stand still but they wouldn't oblige.

Copago maybe you should have got hold of Joe Pasquale, he is good with emu's or was when in the Jungle as a celebrity in the reality tv show.

Looks like your roses are going to hang on this year, Liz. Copago, are the emus yours or do they run wild there? My husband and sister used to raise emus and ostrich years ago.

Here's a flower for all the wonderful people at FT. This was taken at the plantation in So. Carolina last weekend. Can someone tell me what it is?

It looks from the leaf and flower like it might be some kind of Camellia, Lisa. I'm sure one of the experts will pop in to correct. I love the jellyfish, they have always fascinated me.

Liz,
That rose is unwilling to give in to the seasons, how neat.

Copago,
Even though they wouldn't cooperate, love the shot of the emus! I obviously don't have those roaming my yard here, so it's always a pleasure to see your local inhabitants.

I love all the rest too, thanks guys!

This is one of the many traditional stations, Harrow and Wealdstone which is on the national system and Underground. Many in south London have recently been demolished though with no station buildings left at all where they have.

The emus are wild here. I can't imagine the kind of fencing you'd need to keep them in. They are a bit of a pest to us as they can do a fair bit of damage to fences - the other half reckons about $8,000 a year between the emus and kangaroos.

This truck is the kind they use to clean out opal mine shafts -( in an effort to get a good picture for the theme of the week thread I took heaps of photos of signs ) which they've used at White Cliffs as the town sign.

That is an early blooming camellia. Forgot the name, but I have some in my yard that are a darker pink.

Your photos are fascinating Copago; so different from the lifestyle most of us know
Y'all be pleased to know that Mickey Mouse is alive and well, and last seen in central London

I asked my neighbor (a better gardner than me) what the camellia is called. She says it is: Camellia sasanqua. The leaves are smaller than on a regular camellia plant.

I love the emus Copago! Mickey looks pretty good, too

It was another lovely spring-like day today (71 degrees F at 3 p.m.) so naturally I did some more walking, some of it by the river.

Some people go to extreme lengths to pay tribute to their heros. This Swiss lady has this amazing tattoo of Freddie Mercury.

Beautiful bhs!

One of the few benefits of "fall back" and early darkness is my after work commute includes the sunset. The clouds coming over the Rockies look like winter stalking.

I think Mickey Mouse must be on a quick holiday from running the European parliament.

Here's the nearby station from yesterday's but on a different line, Harrow on the Hill, right in the middle of town.

How insulting of you David; if Mickey Mouse was running the European parliament there wouldn't be half of the hare brained legislation and hot air coming from it

Twisted Scots pine trees which line both sides of many Breckland minor roads - extremely spooky when there is a full moon and no other traffic.

Great Photos everyone, I haven't been posting as I haven't been out much to take photos of. Okay I keep forgetting my camera. It can't be because I'm getting older.

Anyways eh! Here is the view from my front bedroom (computer room) window. Winter has arrived. Can Santa be far behind?

Great photos everyone. That hydrant (is that what it is?) sticks out a mile, Argus

Here is a Copago sign (Copago is the name of our property if anyone didn't know already). It's on our boundary in the middle of nowhere and isn't there for any particular reason - the only people who go there are us as it's a good shortcut up to WHite Cliffs. Jack just reckons Shell had a promotion years and years ago to make signs.
