Sunday, April 19, 2015  MY "NANA" NECKLACE  "If Mommy says no - ask Nana." ~ God's Child (Me)  Although there were hundreds of charms to select from, this was the only one that was inscribed with the word, "Nana" and I had to have it! The owner of the shop said that there were only two of these and that her mother had purchased the other one. Underneath is the gift bag from the store. By the way, I'm "Nana" to our youngest grand-prince and "Grandma" to our oldest grand-prince and three grand-princesses; but,each of them have their own little "place and space" in my heart and life. By the way, I'm also known by many as "Glam-Ma (aka "Glamorous Grandma"). Grandparents and grandchildren rock!!!!  Have a blessed day!

Painted Lady Butterfly...  This pretty butterfly was busy flying around our lemon tree and its blossoms a few days ago. As I was trying to get a shot, it landed on the bark near the tree. I was able to get a couple of shots, this is one of them. I particularly liked the shadow...  Thanks for your views and comments! Critiques always welcome...  April 18, 2015

17.04.15 - The Path Less Travelled  I'm posting this a day late because our internet was down for over 24 hours until this morning. I have a reputation for taking the "scenic route" wherever I go, even if it is a little bit longer I much prefer taking field paths to walking along busy roads. This is a 2 shot photomerge panorama of my walk back from a local supermarket. The field on the left will be bright yellow with oildseed rape flowers in a couple of weeks.  Once I've worked through emails and everything else I'll post another Daily to catch up properly
July 26, 2012    "It was a somber place, haunted by old jokes and lost laughter. Life, as I discovered, holds no more wretched occupation than trying to make the English laugh. "  ~ Malcolm Muggeridge     Best viewed in larger sizes.  SOOC    This is another shot from the inside of the Catfish Plantation (see yesterday's potd) looking out the window of one of the many dining rooms.  You can see he structure of the old building and how it is so beautifully painted.  The "wavy" feel that you experience when looking through the window is not a character flaw in the wood, nor a camera malfunction.  It is in fact the texture of the window glass.  This is old window glass called float glass that was made by floating liquid glass on a molten metal, often tin.  This old style of glass always has the inherent ripples and waves.    To read more about how float glass was made, click here:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Float_glass    Have a 'hauntingly - good" day today my friends!     And............have some fried catfish!  :-))    Linda
Saturday, April 18, 2015  "HELLO, SPRING FLOWERS!" (Bradford Pear Tree)  "If you reveal your secrets to the wind, you should not blame the wind for revealing them to the trees." ~ Khalil Gibran  If you notice, most of the Bradford pear flowers were on the opposite side of the tree in the yard at this residence. It had rained the day before and was muddy; so, for obvious reasons, I opted to photograph this cluster of blooms hanging lower from the limbs and illuminated by the sun.  A residence on the side of Lakeside United Methodist Church Lake Village, AR  Have a great weekend!  ***#10 photo of the day***  (photo taken 3/23/2015)  My Homepage: www.Godschild.SmugMug.com
April 19.  I went to a bridal shower on the water yesterday and the weather was superb, like a warm summer day.  This was her cake.  I'd say a bit different, I've never seen one quite like this before.

18.04.15 - Lost Pheasant?  Finally caught up after my 24 hours without internet! This is my second Daily post of the day, please check out the panorama I posted earlier for Friday as well as this guy. I see a lot of pheasants around here in the fields, but I think this one must be a bit lost to be running through the muddy edge of the Old Fishponds yesterday. It isn't a great shot, he was moving fast through the undergrowth and I was shooting with a long lens through the bushes, but he is a handsome chap I think :)
