Day 109: Forsythia - April 19.
Monday, April 20, 2015  "WHITERRIFIC"   "Let us permit nature to have her way. She understands her business better than we do." ~ Michel de Montaigne  Dancing in the wind were these ornamental, spectacular, and spring flowers known as "Magnolia Stellatas" (aka "Star Magnolias"). According to Wikipedia, they are "slow-growing shrubs or small trees native to Japan that bear large, showy white or pink flowers in early spring, before their leaves open."  I appreciate your comments on my "Nana Necklace" yesterday. I noticed that a few of you got a kick out of me being known as "Glam-Ma" (aka "Glamorous Grandma").....and yes, I am....... and love it!  Have a marvelous Monday!  NIBBS (Hair Salon)  (photo taken 3/24/2015)  My Homepage: www.Godschild.SmugMug.com

April 20, 2015  This is our granddaughter Eleanor on her first train ride (remember that she too is a member of the "Family of Train Nuts").  She is 3 years old, and will be 4 in June.  She was just fascinated by the ride, and I caught her many times in photos just staring out the open windows of the old rail car.  More train ride photos to come.  But I have to share a "faux pas" that I made.  We had to awake at 5:00 a.m. to drive to Palestine, TX in time to catch the train.  So in my half asleep state, I just grabbed my good camera, and go to lens & put it in the car.  I didn't want to deal with the bag that had all the extra lenses, batteries, etc.  So we get to Palestine, the kids start playing & I start taking photos.  That's when I realized that the "good" camera had about 1/4 battery left.  The good news was I had my point & shoot in the car, so I grabbed that.  The good camera lasted about 50 shots before it died, but I had the point & shoot as back up.

September 25, 2013  This lovely meadow was along our drive from Moab, Utah to Ouray, Colorado.  It was not too far from from Montrose, Colorado if I recall correctly.  This is a 5 shot HDR merge.    The sky was threatening rain, and within minutes of taking these shots, it did begin to rain.  What beautiful country we saw on the trip.    If you have time, check this out in X-large.  Thank you all for your kind comments.  Critiques are welcome.  "It is the mind which creates the world around us, and even though we stand side by side in the same meadow, my eyes will never see what is beheld by yours, my heart will never stir to the emotions with which yours is touched."  ~ George Gissing  Have a beautiful day my friends!  Linda  Late added comment:  yes I'm still in Birmingham and my work day just ended about 30 minutes ago (10:00 PM) after arising at 5:00 am for the start of my day, so I'm late in making and reading comments. Please see Dreamcatcher's s comments - I had no idea this was Ralph Lauren's ranch.  Way cool!!!

Saw this cool pooch yesterday at the Lavender Festival here in beautiful Sequim, Washington.
A new specie of donkey appeared in the Nevada Desert - this is possibly related to the increasing heat in this region, so the donkeys are looking for the shade of the few existing trees... I introduce you the Zebra Burro :)

"Purple and Tiny"

I can never remember the name of this plant that is by my stream. I think is is Japanese something. Whatever it is, it certainly is pretty when it is blooming.
