My goodness, that street looks absolutely spotless, Howiie! and what a pleasure to be able to visit without having hordes of people under your feet!

Very cute kitty, Ren!

My biological father passed away when I was eight years old in 1968. We moved out of state after that and I never saw his gravesite until today. He lies beneath this large tree.

Thanks for sharing that ClaraSue, it is very moving. I hope I can be under a tree and not a lump of concrete. It's a beautiful place.

Thanks you Clara Sue for showing us that. That's a nice place to rest.

There is an organisation here caled Green Burial. They own and operate woodland sites where you can have your ashes or coffin put. These are safe in perpetuity. There are several of these starting to spring up over the country. They also use only natural materials, wicker coffins for example. There is one quite near here and a dear friend of ours opted to use their services. It was a very simple service and she is lying in a lovely place, under a silver birch tree. There are wild flowers all over the site, seats here and there to sit and contemplate. It is a very peaceful, very lovely place full of birdsong. I think I'd like to go there when my time comes.

Not sure if I'm doing this right or not. Used direct link, so here goes! This photo was picked up by my game camera.

The birds are Common Grackles, enjoying the deer food (cob) we put out for the deer at night. The birds eat the left overs.

Thank you, yes she is. When you say game camera - is that one you have fixed to a tree or something outdoors that triggers when something comes into range?

That's right! I fasten it to a tree, turn it on and check for pictures in a day or two. I have many deer photos this year. The camera is called Game Spy. It uses night vision and is triggered by motion. Of course in the day my pics will be colored, as per normal. The night vision ones are basic black and white and the deer's eyes glow. I've captured raccoons, rabbits, does and yearlings and birds so far. I love having the game camera, since so many creatures only come out at night.

Very pretty park, Satguru, and Howie love that photo of the theatre!

Christina, what a photo! It almost looks as if your robin has been photoshopped in!

The deer at the Spikersuppa in Central Oslo. In winter the pool is used a a skating rink. I think I scared the deer as they never moved....
