Storks at sunrise    Pair of Jabiru storks on their nest at sunrise.  Every evening the storks went back to their large messy nest on the Fazenda St Tereza and very morning just after sunrise they flew off to fish.  I had to get up early to catch them still on the nest.

Scilla is blooming everywhere around here.  It naturalizes so easily that vast patches, drifts, hillsides, swales of it abound.  In combination with the ever-present brilliant yellows of forsythia and daffodils, they shout 'Spring is here!'  DP109-2015  Posted Sunday, April 19.  Taken April 17, Hidden Lake Gardens, Michigan  Title:  A Sea of Scilla  I appreciate all the kind comments on yesterday's shot of bloodroot blooms.
April 19, 2015  Several weeks ago we drove two hours from home to catch a ride on the Texas State Railroad Steam train.  It starts in Palestine, TX and you ride through the wonderful east Texas forests in the old rail cars.  After about a 2 hour ride, you are in Rusk, Texas.  There's a 1.5 hour break for the riders to have lunch.  We always pack a picnic lunch to enjoy with the kids.  It's a fun, fun time.  Then we board the train again for the return 2 hour trip.  We love this ride.  Of course, I do have a whole family of train nuts, and I guess you can say they've converted me too.  This is a photo of oldest grandson Case (in the rear) and his younger brother Benjamin as they walked the rails while we were waiting to board the steam train.  I applied a Topaz oil painting filter.

Sunday, April 19, 2015  MY "NANA" CHARM/NECKLACE  "If Mommy says no - ask Nana." ~ God's Child (Me)  There were hundreds of charms to select from, but 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 grandson and "Grandma" to our other four grandchildren; 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").   Have a blessed day!

4/19/15 -  Recent processed shot of part of the infrastructure of the locks on Lake Washington, Seattle.  Take a look in the largest size.  I'll be absent for about a week without 'net access.  I'll look forward to catching up on all your shots when I get back from my trip.  Thanks for your comments on my shot of the mossy RV!

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
