  • Photo's, Take 5!

    Ok all you snap-happy peeps, here's a new thread that needs some action.
    Since I started the new thread I might as well be the first to post..if not me, who? if not now, when?...

    Spring, I do believe, has made its arrival here in the mid-Atlantic region of the good ol' U.S.of A.....

    my dogwood makes an appearance......


    Now, who's next? Tracey? Janie? Sharon? Robin? Andrea? Rosalie? Anybody?......

      Diana,
      Gorgeous dogwood photo! Do you know if they come in a pink almost purple variety? We drove to KY last weekend and all along the highway there were some gorgeous pinkish purple flowering trees and I wondered if they might be dogwoods?

      Meme,
      That is a perfect sunset!! Makes me long for a tropical vacation!
      hugs,
      Janie

        Janie--dogwoods do in fact come in a pink variety. There's a house a few doors down from me that has a few pink dogwoods mixed in with their white ones. I'll have to remember to take a pic once they start to bloom.

        Meme--lovely sunset photo! Theres nothing quite like the sun arriving or departing in our individual corners of the world. If you're a sunset/sunrise fanatic I'd recommend checking out a group on Flickr titled 'Sunsets and sunrises around the world'.

        Hope everyones well!

          Meme, I love sunset and sunrise shots, they always have an air of grandeur about them.
          Diana, how about a shot of the whole dogwood plant? The flower looks similar to a plant here by a different name. And with your spring comes our autumn, my favourite time of the year.
          David and I just got home from the caravan and camping show. After picking out the camping trailor that we want to buy (but can't afford), are planning the autumn holiday that we can't afford either!
          Alas! daughter had the digital at college today otherwise I could have posted a picture.....we CAN afford that.

            Yay! I love to see dogwoods!! I just think they are so pretty. Hmmm, gonna take the camera with me to work today I do believe so that I have something to post, lmao!!

            Oh I too love sunrise and sunset pictures, they are so calming I think! You'd think since I live on what they call the "Sunrise Side" of this state, that I'd have more of those, but like, that involves EARLY morning...ew. Sunsets easier... ha ha ha ha!!!!

            I love camping Ro, one my fave things to do. We can't afford a trailer at all at present, can't say when we ever will, ha ha! I started out tent camping, paid my dues with that then when I was married the first time we had an older trailer and went all the time. I will never go back to tents again!!!!
            Hugs,
            Tracey

                Gee D, guess what I forgot to take with me to work today? UGH!!!

                Oh camping is fun! And that's why you wear repellant -to keep the littel buggers off of you!! I have only had one on me, and it wasn't the dreaded sort, but still I totally freaked out, omg, it was huge! But it was just on me, not settling in or anything. It was quite a few years ago too, our Upper Pennisula was having a horrible time with them up there, ugh. They were everywhere, and we were on a work camping trip, so it was me - the camp cook, lol, and the guys. I thought to bring along repellant, and they all laughed at me - until one saw one on him, it was on his stomach and headed south, lmao! I have never laughed so hard in my life - from then on I kept hearing "Tracey, do have anymore bug stuff?" ha ha ha!!!!

                  Tracey, my irises (how do you pluralize iris??) have started blooming. I will have to remember to take a picture. Have your's started coming up yet?

                  Janie...The purple trees are probably redbuds. They are blooming all over right now. We took my son and his fiance' to the square in a nearby town on Sunday and I took lots of pictures of the dogwoods and redbuds.

                  About camping...My dad loved to fish, so we did it alot when I was a kid. Went from tent to RV through my growing up years! Now I would just rather rent a cabin. Not because of bugs and such, I don't mind them most of the time, I just like the "facilities" better. I have peed behind enough trees in my life! LOL! My in-laws have a very nice RV, but I have only "camped" in it once when we had a pretty big storm and the most of the city had lost their electricity. We went over to my in-laws so that we could watch TV and have air-conditioning since it worked of the generator and has Direct TV. Luckily we only lost power for a day, so we were back home quick! It was July...Remember that storm Janie and Sharon???

                    T83...A day!!!!!!!!!!!!! We were without for 9 days in total. First round was 6 days. Then MLGW powered us up. Then a transformer exploded and we were without for another 3 days. It was miserable. Oh BTW...What made matters worse is that Hurricane (that's what this storm was named by the news media here) came through the morning of my B-day. No cake for Sharon.

                    Tracey...Tie a string around one of your fingers so you will remember to bring the camera tomorrow. Oh, wait...Then you will have to tie another string around another finger to remember why the other finger has a string on it.

                    Camping...I grew up camping (tent camping). My whole family would go up into the high mountains of the Sierra Nevadas in California every summer for 2 weeks at a time. We would have to hike down a mountain side to a fresh mountain stream to get our water and to bathe. Nothing like bathing in a snow melt stream. Brrrrrrrr But once you turn blue, it really isn't bad. The hike down wasn't bad, but then you had to hike back up with full water bags.

                    Shopping??? Did someone mention shopping? I'll get my hat... ;-)

                      Tracey...I hope you remember your camera. Just put it in your car as soon as you get home.

                      Yes Sharon, we just had 1 day, but there was alot of my hubby's family that were like you, so we had a few guests. I had a cat and dog at the time, so some of family didn't want to since they weren't fond of animals and I wasn't going to make them stay outside!

                      I am sorry that it happened on your birthday, but now I know when your b-day is! I slept right through the storm. When I looked outside, my front tree was broken in half. Luckily it fell into the street and not my house.

                      I am looking forward to see alot of spring photos!

                              Me too Starting to get spring time here finally! Going tomorrow to pick up our boat to get it dewinterized!!!! Can't wait to get back on the water again. Won't be the same as the ocean though. Might be kinda weird to slip back into the muddy lake water after seeing how clear the ocean was. At least this way though I can't see the fish that I'm swimming with! LOL
