Another image from my visit last week-end to the National Slate Museum of Wales. It's not the devil, just the Welch Dragon!

I just heard the odds somewhere, and if using real cards would be 649,739/1 although being a computer programme would not be certain if truly random. Still massive odds either way though.

Here is a view of Barnet taken on maximum zoom from Totteridge.

Nice hand, Dave! My husband has that very game and plays it when he's not online playing. Hubby and I are avid Hold'Em players.

Bought some grapes yesterday, and I thought they looked nice in the sun.

As promised a picture of my Mandella Childrens Rose slightly more open and changing colour.



Like the snow levels too liz.

OOoh Ren nice Kumquats.

Dave I wonder if you could lend me $100,000 - just until payday.

Those grapes do look good in the bowl dj.

It's such a rainy day today so I haven't been out with the camera. A few months ago while visiting my sister, I put ClaraSue in her backyard. After awhile, when I went to check on her, I find the goofy dog standing on the porch railing. She has to climb anything she finds that gets her up off the ground.

This afternoon, a favorite underpass hacked out of rock, not far from center city Philly. I'm sorry it's blurry. What you can't see on the left is the Schuylkill River (skoo-kull) but driving is not the time to take scenic side views!

This is a recently discovered guilty pleasure - doughnut-like bits covered in cinnamon, with a cream cheese icing dip! My local pizza place delivers them

Yummy liz!

Picture three in my Rose series.
Now that the rose is completely open it is pink on the outside and yellow in the center.

"Schuylkill River (skoo-kull)"

Thanks for the pronunciation. Every time I saw the signs, I wondered how to pronounce the word.

I am really enjoying everyone's pictures

Yes, I saw that name ages ago and this is the first time I found how to pronounce it.

This came out very well, it's the A1 taken from Highgate Archway, known as suicide bridge for obvious reasons. Besides the fact I was born just behind where I took this it's the main road from central London north and goes under the old original road I was on after being dug out underneath it.

Here's this week's picture of the Moira River. I was standing in the same place as last week, but looking in the other direction.

I missed last weeks sculpture thread so I'll add it here. I posted a similar one a few months ago of a buffalo. This is an elk at the same hotel in southern Oklahoma.

Love all the photos!

Out at the barn today, Tiki and R2 got to roam a bit and I caught them pretending to be mountain goats on the picnic table!

A variety of types and shapes of stones, on one of the outside walls of our local church.

Now there's a cabbage! The local YMCA allotments have really taken off, with people coming out from town to tend to their little plots,which are all run on organic lines. Heaven knows what caused these to grow so big. The mind boggles...


The whole plot

WOW, incredible cabbages, ren. When we lived in Alaska, the state fair had a "big vegetable" contest every year, and it wasn't hard to grow them big there because of the 22 hours of sun a day in the summer. Surely Hong Kong doesn't get that much sun in the winter?! Maybe Miracle-Gro?

It is very mysterious, the boss of the 'organic' farm looked a bit sheepish when I asked...

Haven't posted on here in a while, but I browse the new pictures every single day. They are amazing! (also, I wanted to welcome back Kapuskasing - I hope you left your health problems back in 2007! )

We saw these parrots on the island of Tortola (BVI) in March of last year. They posed so nicely it looks like a postcard!

I reckon he's just a very good gardener, understands weather and soil conditions, and chooses his varieties well
This is the interior of a large Roman Catholic church in Notting Hill, London.

Here is smoke blowing across allotments in Highgate. I thought it created a very artistic effect.
