I have this mystery vine. I am so spastic when it comes to learning and remembering the names of plants. This is yet another that I don't know the name of. The first two shots are the whole plant. Third, fourth and fifth shots had some tweaking done in Paint Shop, but the final shot, number six, came straight from the camera looking like some ghostly flower slowly coalescing into shape out of thin air.

Haiku

Leaves
Leaves skate on the drive
In wildly blustering winds
See them dance with joy



The haiku bug is going around...this is my contribution

I'm not sure about the insect in the first two pictures. It sounds like a bee, it's colored like a bee, but the body shape is not like any bee I've ever seen. Can anyone name that bug for me? The other pictures are a honey bee and, of course, a bumble bee. I really got the creepers out there trying to take these pictures---I'm allergic---but I've seen some great macro bug pictures lately and wanted to try some for myself. These aren't as close as I'd like, but maybe as I get braver...

Natural Phenomena

The two trees...
...reach a point...
...and become one
There is a young tree growing in the shadow of an old Walnut tree. The trunk of the young tree and a limb of the old tree cross in what I can only describe as a fine example of the Vulcan Tree Meld...

Adventures in Cedar Siding

Little house on the prairie
Before
After
We have a house in the woods. This house in the woods is covered in wood, cedar siding to be exact. It looks marvelous---as long as you maintain it. I didn't know how often it needs to be stained and sealed to keep looking marvelous. I also didn't know it would cost a minimum of $4000.00 to have someone come and do this work. Well after the fortune spent this week on a new lateral field, spending money on just about anything is out of the question. BUT, the siding needs to be sealed NOW. So, we are doing it ourselves. I even think we will be able to reach 95% of the siding and only need to call in the professionals for the very high peaks that we can't reach. If I never post again, it means I've fallen off the ladder and broken my neck...
