Begun way back in the mist of time by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock and now continued by me, with a drastic relaxation of rules.
Originally meant for showcasing old photos lost on your files, never seeing the light of day, the meme has morphed into photos of your choice, new or old, good or not-so-good, anything you please, but nothing rude please.
If you are participating, please leave me a comment so I can buzz along and have a look.
Elephant's Child always participates, and her pictures are always worth seeing.
A short selection today, beginning with a cartoon from our newspaper:
which I think is absolutely hilarious
moving into the garden, one of my jade plants has fallen over, it seems the soil is too dry to hold the weight of it.
you can see here some of the roots are exposed, they're a lot smaller than I expected for a plant this size.
There are already new shoots growing,
and bigger shoots a bit further around. If I left it they would cover up the exposed branches and it would just look like a squat version of the others, but I don't like it like this and something will get done about it soonish.
the ixia stems are all droopy and untidy, I'll wait until they've all browned off then cut them just above ground level.
I'll do the same with the bluebells,
and all those untidy freesias.
finishing with another picture from the paper, which I meant to use last week and forgot:
a Halloween Statue of Liberty
Illuminated pumpkins in the shape of the Statue of Liberty are on display during the Great Jack O'Lantern Blaze at Van Cortlandt Manor in Croton-on-Hudson, New York. The display runs for 45 nights, including Halloween on October 31, and features more than 7000 hand-carved, illuminated pumpkins set against the mysterious backdrop of Van Cortlandt Manor's 18th century buildings and riverside landscape.
