People have been posting frosty and snowy-looking stuff all over the place . . . I feel left behind (as I hope to be). I mean, it’s not like we have not had the weather. It’s time, you see . . . that’s what is playing hide-and-no-gots with me.
But, after seeing yet more offerings this morning, I decided I must do something . . . and, by golly, if it hadn’t been -4 degrees (Fahrenheit) outside, I would have went for a long walk, lugging my camera and tripod across the beautiful frozen tundra right outside my door.
Instead, I got an idea . . . .Birdbath Margaritas!!
You see, I squander a portion of our nation’s energy by heating the birdbath, and on the days when the temperature dips into ranges where hell itself turns up the thermostat, well, on those days I get birdbath margaritas!
There are 22 photographs in THIS SmugMug gallery, but I only present a few below.
I also snapped a few photos of the vegetation . . .
OK, OK, I confess . . . I heat two birdbaths . . .
I was considering keeping only one, especially since I never see birds on them. But this morning, I look out, and a bird was perched on the one above . . . drinking.
But, what’s this crap about Winter Flowers? Well, I bring some of the geraniums into the house, as opposed to disposing them at the end of the season. (There are 9 photos in the Winter Flowers SmugMug Gallery HERE)
They flower pretty much constantly . . .
What’s that fuzzy stuff? Why, you need to go look at the full-sized photos to find out!
Oh . . . some of you may remember my PATH series . I need to get back to that series; still lots of stuff to photograph.
BUT . . . Those flowers are in bloom again.
And, like before, I did a blended layers composite (from six different shots).
Well, that’s it for my entry into “we’re in winter” blog posts. Thanks for visiting.
Please, if you are considering bestowing me some recognition beyond commenting below, refrain from doing so. I will decline nominations whereby one blogger bestows an award onto another blogger, or group of bloggers. I appreciate the intent behind it, but I would much prefer a comment thanking me for turning you away from a life of crime, religion, or making you a better person in some other way. That would actually mean something to me.
Should you still nominate me, I will strongly suspect you pulled my name at random, and that you are not, in fact, a reader of my blog. If you wish to know more, please read below.
Note: to those who may click on “like”, or rate the post; if you do not personally hear from me, know that I am sincerely appreciative, and I thank you for noticing what I do.
. . . my FP ward . . . chieken shit.
