I want very much to go out and take some pictures, but I don't. Depression is like that.
It keeps you from doing a lot of things you'd like to do. :-(

This is "red clover" that I bought from, of all places, Publisher's Clearing House. They
don't just give away money. They also have an online store. Sorry I can't tell you how
to get there. They don't advertise it and the only way I knew it was there was by getting
offers in my email. But they haven't sent me anything for a while.

I had it inside until recently, when one of the kitties decided to climb in and take a nap.
That smushed everything down, so I took it outside into the sun to see if it would perk
back up. It did, and then some! It loves being outside! Of course it will come back inside
once the temperature becomes much less hospitable. But here in central Texas, that
won't be for a while. Probably October. Possibly even November.

That's a beautiful looking plant...wonder if we can get them in the UK.


Thank you.

Just google it and see if someone nearby is selling it.

I called it red clover. I meant red shamrock. And what I see online is that people
are actually calling it purple shamrock. Oops. Sorry.

Your pic with the water droplets is stunning!

Standing in the kitchen on Sunday and noticed a young robin eating the walnuts from the squirrel feeder.



Still not got adult plumage.

And one of dad's neighbours dog Misty, a beagle in her favourite spot, the living room window sill!!



Even has a pillow.

Seeing a bird stealing from a squirrel feeder is a nice change. :-)

Typical. This is what happens when you join the EU and lose control of your borders.....Vikings popping over whenever they like! :D

It certainly is! Fishing, deep snow, soupy mud, rocks, anything that is considered extreme terrain.

I can see myself going out my back gate, down the lane, across the oval (playing field) and then into the river in 1 of those. ;-)

The cool thing is, that you just point it where you want to go, and it goes. Mine will be here about the first of October, and I can't wait to drive it into a lake. I will also have a 9.9 hp outboard on it, so I can move across larger lakes.

I have always wanted one, and it's finally going to happen!

That looks fun - and with 9.9 on the back should be a usable on lakes - I've seen then trying without an outboard and they really struggle on anything other than really still water.
Stay safe, and bring us the tales of the trails :-)

No, just a small inheritance from my father's passing.

I can't retire, or buy a Porsche, but I can afford this one toy.

I will have a video camera, and post to YouTube. I am actually extremely excited about this.

So in an attempt to discover just what happens to the hazelnuts I put out for the squirrels (however many I put out they all disappear overnight) I brought a "wildlife cam"

Basically a video camera in a watertight box with PIR sensors and infra red for night shots. It comes with different mounting options.

However as hard as I tried I have had no shots of any activity on the squirrel feeder at night, just cannot fine the right spot. I did try out the camera pointing at the lawn and got a couple of interesting bird shots.

This is a magpie coming in to land



And a jackdaw doing the same from the other direction.



Now I knew that several jackdaws visited the garden, however I was a little surprised to find out just how many,

https://youtu.be/R2K4vssj7zk

I will persever with sighting the camera and hopefully get the shots I want.

A couple of my normal shots.

The weather has been quite changeable here lately, with sun and rain, this was my daily shot yesterday looking across the Solent towards Hurst castle.



And one of the pleasure boats that does trips round the Needles the Fast Rib "Summer Rose" with Hurst Point light.
