I love the cave pics. Here's a tree branch that caught my eye.

I took my camera out today as I was visiting a pub on the north coast. I took a number of photos of the French coast but they are useless so I ditched them all.

Here's a slightly more urban picture from me, the two towers at Colindale taken from Sainsbury's garage (as you can see).

Another one of Jellybean. I caught her checking herself out in the bathroom mirror this morning

Oh, Peggy, that's lovely! Pretty Jellybean!

We had more snow today, quite a lot more and I had to go out walking in it... This was taken after I got home, around five o'clock this afternoon. It was actually dark by then, but the reflection of light from the snow and white clouds made it light enough not to use flash.

Peggy,that's another fabulous shot! She is such a clown!!
We still have a rose or two, as the weather remains warm.

Peggy, that photo of Jellybean is a riot! She must have quite the personality.

Spanishliz, this photo is for you. My daughter's 5th grade class had to research a country's Christmas/holiday traditions, and she was given "Spain". So yesterday we baked "mantecados", crumble cakes, which are quite delicious! (I personally think they are improved with a bit of powdered sugar on top, though. )

Mmm! Yummy I'd forgotten the correct name, but you're right they are delicious. The other tasty treat at Christmas is turron, and almond-flavoured sticky candy treat.

Peggy, I'm very impressed with Jellybean's abilities, our Persian watched the TV sometimes but not only looking in the mirror but standing on her back paws to do so is getting close to being human! Do you use a canvas filter to get that effect on the photos?

Here's a lovely example of art deco architecture in Southgate. My grandparent's friends lived in one of this row and they are just as nice inside.

No the bathroom light was on which made that yellow glow. She is so much fun. Its more fun watching her than the TV. She will often sit on her back feet. We called it her merecat impression.

Ren, the color of your rose is beautiful!

This is the War Memorial in a small Virginia town that we visited over the Thanksgiving Holiday weekend.

Does it have to be a picture that I took or a picture that I make?

Welcome, rebes! It must be a photo you took yourself. You can find the guidelines for this forum here.

Sorry to bore you with the same rose bush, but I am really pleased with it.

It really is a beautiful rose bush, Ren!

BurgGirl, that is a gorgeous advent house. Very Victorian looking!

I've just got home after a couple of days in Birmingham, England's second largest city. This is the huge bronze bull sculpture, at the entrance of the vast Bullring shopping centre complex.

Who better than one of our own to have a street named after him.



This is a new housing development in the northern section of Carrollton, TX.

Oh, excellent, dg_dave! I suspect that certain person to be our Santa_Claus too - they share a similar rapier wit!

Well, I don't promise that this is the last of my miniature houses, but maybe for a bit. These were the first ones I got, about 15 years ago. Based on "A Christmas Carol". If you look closely on the right hand side, you can see the Jacob Marley figure, and on the left is Scrooge begging the Ghost of Christmas Past to stop torturing him.

It's a pretty safe area. Right now, there's no one living in any housing, as it is still under construction. There are a couple of sales offices.

When I saw the street sign, I had to get a picture!

I was passing this tree today in Golders Green and noticed the parallel branches in the framework looked just like a harp. I've never seen anything like that before.

That really does look like a harp, satguru!

Picqero, I love the bull, reminds me of Spain.

Djsgal, I could look at any number more of your miniature houses, they are lovely.

And of course, only nice people will be allowed to live on a street named after our Gatsby

I took this photo just a few minutes ago, at half past eleven at night. The only light is from a small security light in my neighbour's yard, and the reflection of the city's lights on the almost white sky and snow. It's been snowing all day here again...
