This is the the view from my bedroom window (angled to the right) this morning up here in Scotland. The photo almost looks as if it's been taken in black and white, but can assure you is colour. The tree in the centre in a copper beech, with the entrance to our drive just to the left of that.

I'm also enjoying all the photos! Lovely cat, Karusa, welcome to you both!
Shortly after this photo was taken, Precious chased a leaf, shook her paws, hissed at me and headed for the door to be let in. I think she didn't like getting her feet cold and wet. Her tail (unfortunately unseen in the photo) had puffed out to more than twice normal size, too!

This is Banksia coccinea, which grows in the sandy soil of Australia's south-west. Sadly, there's no chance of it surviving in my garden's heavy clay loam. It's cultivated for the florist trade, which is how I came to have it.

I have been doing a bit of family geneology. Discovered that my great-great-great-great-great-grandfather's house still existed. So I went to have a look over a Thanksgiving trip -- it's in Virginia just about 30 miles from Charlottesville where my oldest son lives. When I started this geneology trip I had no idea that some of my ancestors were from Virginia.
This side view shows the original house. When it was built it was a log cabin. Over the years and renovations the logs are covered over. It was built in the early 1700s. It's so cool to have found this tangible piece of family history!

I saw enough last winter that I don't want to see any this winter!
