Love the meercat! Those houses do look so cheerful, MadMags, it seems a fun place to live.

Here are some of my sister and brother-in-law's many flowers.

gorgeous scenery tredici, what a nice depth to the image.

not sure what kind of tree this was, but it was this spring;
the lichened branches against a stucco wall, with the light
coming over the top of the building appealed to my eye.

This one was more amusing in the flesh I have to say, it was the way he had his legs crossed that tickled me, and others.

Copago, be sure to post a photo of your new water tank. I hope all that goes well.

Thank you, Mags. Pretty houses.



Day lily. Like our clematis, the day lilies come up every year without human intervention. Unlike the clematis, these things come up all over--they are on the east side of the house amongst the bushes, along the side fence in random spots, and all along the back fence. Hardy would be the word to describe them, I think.

The only place I've seen in Britain with pastel houses is south Devon, especially round Torquay. They are no different from the Victorian villas anywhere else in the country but do look less like prisons in pale pinks and yellows.

This is Sheen cemetery, I was very pleased the way it turned out

Here is the tank just about to go ..



And here it is on the ground. There was about a foot of sludge which spread about a bit and the stand looked like it was going to buckle at one stage and needed supporting but really it went off pretty well.
New one goes up today

A couple of soft sunsets, nice. I like day lilies deputygary , mine were touch and go for a while, as the leaf-cutter ants cut them to the ground every night, but I think they're finally established. Tredici, lovely shot, what beauty you live in. I like your photo sat, peaceful, and nice textures. Copago, still hard at work, I see.

Here's a play pal for your dobie, picqero.


Heidi loves her frisbee. As you can see, it's got a toothmark or two on it.

In the new photo chain thread I posted a picture of a yew tree that is at least a thousand years old - though some English yews are known to be over 4,000 years old. This is the same tree, from the other side:

A little off track, I guess ---- but while unpacking yet more tucked away boxes (yes ... it's been eight months of casual unpacking already, and will more than likely be at least eight months more of it) I found this pair of shoes amongst my deceased uncle's things. He served in the Korean War, so I suspect these shoes are from there/then, but I'd never seen them before. They're actually rather amazing! Each of the pair is carved out of a single block of wood, then obviously hand-painted. Aside from the notableness of the craftmanship, it would also appear that some unknown young woman (with mighty tiny feet) wore 'em, too ! They just had to be uncomfortable as heck? But they surely are eye-catching! I'd never seen a pair of shoes like these ...

The Castle, Beaufort SC

This is a lovely house on the marsh next to the Beaufort River. It was built in the late 1850s. The Union Army occupied Beaufort for most of the Civil War. This house was used as a Union Hospital.

I've been taking quite a few pictures lately, and I've convinced myself to stop being lazy and to actually upload them rather than just having them sit and do nothing. Here is one of a lone tree at almost sunset

For anyone in London or visiting, this is the O2 Centre. It is not the old Millenium Dome which is the O2 Arena but the much older shopping centre on Finchley Road about 12 miles away. I know at least one other person who thought this was where they had the concerts but luckily he wasn't going to one.



In fact the story goes when it was named they got H2O mixed up with O2 and was meant to be called H2O but too late. That was long before O2 bought our own Cellnet company and then the Dome. I'd love to find out how many people have gone to this one for an event, as there may not be a concert venue but has a cinema. I've never been as it has the most expensive parking in North London so they can keep it.
