Good morning. Temps are beginning to warm up here, but we're getting a lot of rain. I'm not complaining though, other parts of the country are being flooded with the rain. Every now and then we have a day of sunshine.
I do have to say though, that the rain is hurting my plants. There's just too much of it. This morning, I brought two of the pots back up on the porch (after I dumped the water out of them.) I don't think they will make it.
Remember the days when a user manual came with most products? For some reason, the manufacturers decided that we did not need the paper manual, and instead put one online. You can usually download it as a PDF file.
I don't know about you, but it's very difficult for me to try to look things up on my laptop when I'm outdoors trying to take photographs. The cameras (at least the Canon ones) do come with a little user manual. The booklet is small with tiny print, and only a third or fourth of the manual is in English. I don't find this user friendly.
I found a company on the web that will print any PDF manual for you. Their name is PDF-2-PRINT LTD. Their web address is: www.pdf-2-print.co.uk. I had the manual for my PowerShot printed, and it is really nice. The cost was reasonable. I think it was around $17. Just thought you might be interested.
Today I thought I would share some photos that I took of a really interesting tree that is on the grounds of my timeshare resort. The tree was just stunning, from the ground all the way up to the top of it.
This is the base of the tree.
This is the mid section of the tree. Years of different types and size of philodendron plants have been growing up and around the tree.
By Joyce Kilmer
I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in Summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.
I haven't made any special plans for today because somehow my plans keep getting changed. Not that it matters. My new outlook is "if I get to it, I'll get to it. If not, there's tomorrow." This seems to work. I am going to set aside some time to play on my laptop. I need to make some more quick pages.
We were supposed to have sunshine today, but I'm looking out my door and it is looking pretty gray. A breeze is picking up and the clouds seem to be getting darker. At least the trees have all filled out with beautiful green leaves. The two big trees at the end of my driveway sort of make an arch over the entrance to my yard. It's really a pretty sight.
Now I'm off. I'll do a bit of blog reading first, then I'll see about making some new quick pages. So, till Sunday, Y'all have a fantabulous weekend.
Hugs, Edna B.
