I think this is a species of Rose Mallow. I always muddle up Rose Mallow, Rose Myrtle and Rose of Sharon. Anyway, it grows wild in the mountains here and is very pretty.

Another holiday photo. Here's an ice cream I had at a Bodenwerder Eiscafe. It had walnuts and a coffee flavoured runny liquid all over it. A liqueur was at the bottom. It was luverly

Yesterday we went and helped out at a friend's place doing some cattle work. My arms are so sore today, used muscles in them that haven't had a workout for a while

TW, that looks more like an island than an ice-cream. Yum!

I'm getting hungry just looking at it.

I've finally been bothered to upload some of my photos to photobucket, so here is a georgeous photo of my kitty, Patch.



One of him fully stretched out here.

It isn't very good quality, but he is a very pretty kitty.

Here's my "around the world" wall. Remembrances from living/visiting Spain, Mexico, Portugal, and Latvia. And one broom from a Renaissance Festival.

TW, that’s a fantastic ice-cream – practically a meal in itself.

Lioness, Patch is a splendid cat.

Lamb House in Rye has been lived in at various times by Henry James and E. F. Benson. It’s supposed to have been the inspiration for “Mallards”, Miss Mapp’s house in Benson’s wonderful “Mapp & Lucia” novels of English provincial snobbery.

Here is a photo from Ketchikan Alaska. There is a Totem Heritage Centre there which has numerous old Totem Poles as well as an art centre where Native artisans are carving new ones.

Tom, every time you've posted a picture of Rye I was about to ask if you had any pictures of Lamb House. I read a novel about Henry James called The Master, by Colm Tóibín, and in it he mentions Lamb House many times and even describes it. It sure is a beatiful house. Whenever you post a picture of Rye it reminds me of The Master. Thanks for posting this picture


Edited to add: Lioness, Patch is so cute!

This is a view from an overlook on the way up to Spruce Knob, West Virginia's highest point. Five mountain ranges are visible on a clear day with the most distant being located in neighboring Virginia.

This is one of the last photos I took of my sister and brother-in-law's beautiful girl, Maggie. (That's his hand, holding the water dish for his princess.) She's had bad arthritis for some time and developed other problems, so they had to make the hard decision. Bless her.

So today I had help picking out some batik fabric. She also helps me pick out my clothes every day in my closet....

Lioness, I'm thinking she may be a long lost cousin of Patch.

Oh by the looks of it definately. Patch has been known to climb in wardrobes and go to sleep as well.

This steam engine was used many years ago in a textile mill a few miles from Bodenwerder. The local council decided to make an exhibition of it. It was moved to Bodenwerder by the Royal Engineers stationed at Hameln.

My phone camera couldn't even locate it, and the other camera was out of batteries.

I often wondered what happened to the recycling bins in the carpark, I assumed they just swapped them for empty ones several times a week, but not so. If I had really thought about it then I suppose this is far more sensible...

Thanks for the Lunar Eclipse photo, Roos--it was great! I wanted to see it last night, but wasn't into getting up at 3 AM.


This is the view from the very top of Spruce Knob. The plan was to catch the setting sun. It was sunny down at the house before we left, but once near the summit it quickly grew overcast and chilly. Still managed to get a few good pictures from the trip. I rather liked the cloudscape in this one.

This is being touted as a miracle fruit. Drink the juice and it's good for about 50 different ailments. Also known as "rainforest viagra." LOL Ugly thing, but it tastes good.

I've been away on another 'Historical Re-enactment' event for the past few days. This one covered everything from Stone Age to WWII.
This is a Mesololithic flint knapper of around 6,000 B.C.

Jar, what a magnificent tail your cat has!

Roos, great photo of the eclipse.

Priory Court at Pevensey in Sussex is a 17th-century building that is now a hotel.

Nice shot of the mountains Au_Naturel.

Roos that moon shot is excellent.

TW your photo of the steam engine reminds me of a toy one I had as a child. It was make of tin except for the boiler which was steel I think. You filled it with water and you had small paraffin wax logs you used to heat the water. It had a pulley system that you could put rubber bands around and run small toys. Such as a woodcutter sawing a log. Does anyone else remember them?

Here is my photo for today, its of the Mendenhall Glacier near Juneau Alaska.



The lake in the shot is Crystal Lake.

This is one of the many stations of my past, Belsize Park in Hampstead. I found a London website for tourists which lists photos they need from volunteers and this was one they needed. I already had over 20 they could use so am now represented as a real photographer! I think they call it vanity publishing...
