March 26 - Snow!

We woke up to 26 degrees F and almost two inches of snow! It won't last long as temperatures will be going up. To see more ravine views go here. I'll make a link on the left for later use. I plan on adding a ravine view to the set every day.

Later in the day:

The snow had almost all melted but cold temperatures still persisted Friday night and Saturday morning.

Yesterday we replaced a Baby Blue Spruce. One we put in last year didn't thrive (well, it died!), so we were able to exchange it for a new one. We hope it makes it.

First Spring Flowers

Above is an edited version of the middle picture below. I love how the water droplets are balancing on the petals!

We have just one little bunch of blossoms. Soon the daffodils will pop, though.

Spring Begins!

I go by this rivulet nearly every day and for years I've been meaning to take pictures of it. This morning I finally did. I am going to try to photograph it every now and then in the different seasons.

A Green Post Box for Saint Patrick's Day!

In 2004 in Kildimo, County Limerick, Ireland, I saw this postbox. I noticed that it had started out as a Great Britain mail box - note the E R VII! Edward the seventh followed Queen Victoria in 1901 and reigned until 1910. In the U.K. post boxes are red, in Ireland they are green.

I asked the people in the post office about the box, wondering how there happened to be a U.K. mailbox in the Republic of Ireland. They said that that was the one they were sent when the requested a new box just a couple of years before. It seems the postal authorities recycle - green, indeed!

Something new - sorta

Until I saw it on another blog I didn't realize that you can embed Google Streetview in a blog. Here's Ledge Lane - you may scan around and zoom. I would guess rthis was taken back in the autumn of '08. You may notice that they blurred out the front porch - I think the program they were using to detect people thought the pumpkin was a person!

I made this fish many years ago. The materials are copper and brass on wood bound with leather.
It was exposed to the elements for a long time but it's been inside on the garage wall for almost seven years.
