Welcome back, mc_shellsie, love the daisy.

Zorba, that is a real kaleidoscope of colour, fabulous!

Continuing our tour around Orosi, here is a typical Costa Rican house. The container on the sidewalk is used for garbage pick-up.

What colorful pictures. I have to think a special fun-loving, don't-take-life-so-seriously kind of person would live in a house that color, Mags.



A while back I posted a picture of a nest with eggs that a house wren built in the planter on the wall outside our front door. Three of the eggs have hatched. They are kind of ugly when they are young.

What a wonderful, colourful, bunch of photos!

This little pile of dropped shoes, hats and other possessions helped to convince me that I did not want to join the victims...er, patrons...of this midway ride. (You can see some of their feet in that blurry bit at the top right.)

That is one awesome picture, liz. I love the shoes and the blurry feet and legs.

I've been watching Snowy Egrets and Black Cap Night Heron nests in a park near my home. The nests are in trees on a small island in the middle of a lake. This Night Heron chick surprised himself by taking off in flight. He landed on a box in the lake and spent about ten minutes walking around on it. Maybe his hunting instincts were kicking in.

Very vibrant colors lately -- I like it!

Here is a ferocious Bengal cat on attack! (actually it's a sleepy kitty caught mid-yawn with a cell phone...)

That's just scary.

Hydrangeas. Last year they were blue, this year pink.

deputygary, the PH level of your soil must have changed. Acid soil will give you blue hydrangeas, whereas an alkaline soil will give you pink. I remember mom emptying the teapot around the hydrangeas to increase the acidity of the soil. Personally, I prefer the pink ones. If/when you put lime on the garden in the fall/spring and you like the blue, just avoid applying in that area.

Edited to add: Lovely shot, by the way.

Picqero, my church is not quite as old as yours, but there's a bit more of it left, hehe.



Sorry, but 'my church' beats yours this time. Although the monasterial buildings were destroyed during the reign of Henry VIII, the main church building of Waltham Abbey is intact, and quite beautiful inside - as you can see from their official website images
My photo shows the main tower, viewed from the street.

Welcome back from me too Shelley.

Here's a very unusual art deco house in Burgh Heath, Surrey.

PDAZ has treated us to many sunsets across the desert and I know it's very hot there right now, so in the hope of cooling her down here's a sunset over the sea.

THis is our overhead tank that is leaking badly - today we've a gang coming to take this one down and put a new one up. God knows how that is all going to go. It's 5000 gallons.
The good part was that we had to let all the water go, about half the tank, out of that tank so just had taps going yesterday to empty it. We usually are so water wise that it was good just to fling it around for a bit.

I've posted before about what we call the cactus but I was corrected on here that they are called century plants? It's the shoot of one of those that had fallen down and hte 'leaves' in teh background.

Sunday was a free day at Durrell with almost 15,000 taking advantage of the offer. It was to celebrate fifty years of the Durrell Conservation Trust formerly known as Jersey Zoo. I went with my cousin.

And I was just about to comment on the family similarity ...

I love meercats, funny little creatures.

deputygary, almost all of the houses here are brightly coloured. I went out today and hunted down another one, just for you.


Up the hill you can see a pink house.
