It has been so very long since I posted photos. I had to re-learn everything all over -- including how to use my Photography software. So, after 3 hours of figuring how to resize in Photoshop, I hopefully have success. Here goes 'nuthin!



(Hang on, I'm figuring out why it is so large - I saved the file to 640 pixels and now it shows 800!) Yikes!

To add: Whew! I changed the size in Photobucket, but still don't understand why it was so large to begin with. Hmmm. Could it possibly be that I accidentally posted the wrong photo? Not me,,,,,,

Here is a photo of my sunflowers, day lilies and clematis.



At least I know what they are.

Her name is Duchess, although answers mostly to kitty cat. JTJ, lovely flowers. I still have clematis growing from my neighbor's yard, in spite of pulling it out over and over again.

Thanks Mink and Jar!

Not sure if it is a good thing or bad, but I have about nine more photos of my planters.

So, guess what...they will eventually all appear here.

Been a few days since I posted a sunset...

Those make me smile, picqero, though I'd never try to dance in them!

Duchess is gorgeous, and I love the Brahma/Zebu cow. Wonderful ears

This is just a row of shops downtown, looking festive with a number of flags flying.

Terrific shot of a buffalo Tredici. The first time I saw one firsthand I was astounded at the size of them. Makes a cow look small!

As cute as those shoes are Picqero, you wouldn't find me dancing in them. I'd be on my rear in no time at all. That reminds me of how fashion repeats itself. The high heels now being worn were worn 40 years ago.

Terrific photos everyone.

The zebu would definitely get on with the bullocks, they've got some at a petting farm we go to and they are a lot more calm than our usual cattle who move away as soon as anyone comes near (unlike the horses who always come along to see what you may have for them).

Here's an interesting looking tree in Hendon Wood which is actually in neighbouring Mill Hill

This is what the outside of my house looks like with my six planters. A cornucopia of flowers. I am always getting compliments on them. If I were to take care of them, they would more than likely all be dead. My sister does this, and because of her nurturing they are lovely.

While out cycling earlier today, I passed through the walled gardens of nearby Waltham Abbey
If I hadn't already posted in the weekly theme, I'd have used this image of part of the garden walls. This section was originally part of the cloisters, until the abbey was dissolved by king Henry VIII in 1540.

Tredici, I think your photo got hijacked by Anti-Sec? Anyway....

ClaraSue, that is a cool paint job!
Sat, that looks like a good climbing tree.
JTJ, what gorgeous flower planters! Very summery.
Picqero, my church is not quite as old as yours, but there's a bit more of it left, hehe.

I thought I'd show a bit more of my town, so here is the Iglesia San Jose de Orosi.

St. Joseph of Orosi's church was built in 1743 from adobe bricks and wild cane by the Franciscans. It is the oldest church still in use in Costa Rica. The clay roof tiles are original. Behind the church you can see the shade trees over the coffee bushes. The mountains are covered in them, as Orosi is one of the main coffee growing areas in the country.

Thanks, Tredici and Mags.

Apparently ImageShack was hacked by a movement called Anti-Sec.

See article here.

I'm a bit late with this contribution to the "bovine" mini-theme, and he isn't real, but here's the mascot of the Tibet tent at the "Waterfront and Ethnic Festival" taking place this weekend at my local park. He's meant to be a yak, I think.

I see Tredici's buffalo has finished roaming, and is back again.

Before I even knew he was gone! This little highjacking must've driven a lot of photo forums mad today.

This basket that is on my railing, has wave petunias, as well as regular petunias. When my sister first planted it, the flowers looked so small. I didn't think they would ever grow and start to trail down and around the basket.





My sister and I started a trend of sorts, as once a few of our neighbors saw how nice our basket looked, they wanted one as well.

Around here my sister is nicknamed "the neighborhood gardener".
