The chances of getting the lightning and fireworks is incredible there.

A more ordinary view of some unusual (for Surbiton anyway) houses.

A hibiscus.



Interesting story. The hibiscus was originally to be called "biscus" because the guy who developed it thought it looked like a fresh biscuit all open and ready to be eaten. He was tending his flowers one morning when his neighbor, who edited a garden magazine, called over: "Hi. What kind of flower is that?"
The man replied: "Hi. Biscus."
The editor ran a story on it with the name he heard: "hibiscus."
I could be wrong.

beautiful hibiscus ... they remind me of hollyhocks.

to those who asked, yes, it was a weird night, spectacular sheet lightning and strikes and the funny thing, no rain at all ... we hardly ever get lightning here. before i went down to the grounds, around sunset there was lightning behind a rainbow ... try and try i was never fast enough on the shutter ... just got the rainbow ...
the sky was such an eerie colour. there are several shots copago, but that one was the best. i knew you would all be amazed as i was ...

we are in the worst heat wave i ever remember ... 39C today, and supposed to be hotter tomorrow <wilt> ...

Wow that is warm for your corner of the world! I'm usually the ones complaing about those kinds of temps LOL

Here is my house from the lift thing we used there a couple weeks ago when we fixed that tank. Need a bit of roofing work done

I dragged a friend with me to visit one of the few local "landmarks" here in town last week (the other one is the Pro Football HOF ~ which I got a picture of, too, but will post sometime later). This is the monument to President William McKinley, who was born and raised in Canton, Ohio. I'm pretty sure that there are 4.7 billion steps leading up to it --- but I was (kinda stupidly) determined and climbed every darned one of those rascals on Thursday. Without question, my friend went back down on his own and drove my car to the rear of the top of the structure, so I did NO steps as we left the place, trust me. It's a pretty cool building, though, most think ...

I was pursuing my hobby of historical re-enactment last week-end, at a multi-period 'Festival of History'.
I don't think I'm breaking the 'no people' rule by this image of a medieval knight, after all, you can't see so much as a fingernail.
In fact there might not even be a person inside the armour



The armour, or rather the surcoat, is that of Sir Thomas Beaufort (1377-1426), 3rd son of John of Gaunt, and half brother to king Henry IV. His titles included Knight of the Garter, Lord High Admiral, Earl of Dorset, Captain of Calais, Captain of Honfleur, Lieutenant of Aquitane, Duke of Exeter, and Chancellor of England.

Another scenic cemetery, this is West Hampstead, where we used to hit our cricket balls over the wall to when we played cricket at school. Whoever hit it had to climb over the wall to get it back as I did many times myself.

Love the suit of armour. It is an interesting hobby you have there, Picqero!

We are having a new ground (sort of like a dam) tank dug at the moment. It's just one bloke doing it with a grader and a loader and it should take about two weeks. When finished it will be about 6 metres deep and 75 metres square.
Once it's finished all we have to do it wait for it to rain and fill up with water!

I forgot to check out this thread recently - great photos everyone! I just posted a dingo on Photo Chain - here he is in close up - taken last month at Cooper Creek, Innamincka, SA.

With all the excitement of having the big machines working here my son can't resist taking his loader down to play with and watch the big one.

Great photos! Copago, I love your house and especially love the little and large loaders!

Gats, fantastic accomplishment, and pretty fine photo, too

Lovely horse, Tredici, and satguru, I could spend hours in a cemetery like that one.

Here's an old buggy, made over into a rather pretty planter.

I think I got a half decent shot of a birthday card I got this week ~ we'll see here, in a minute. The card was so cool -- I hope the photo does it some justice . If it did, I got another couple or three cards to share in conjunction with it. I get the coolest cards from the esteemed members around here ! Y'know? I really do love this website (and the people in it)!

Great card indeed, Dave, and a very Happy Birthday to yourself!

Love the 'little and Large' loaders, and the old pew in the theme thread!
