Odds & Ends

Just two shots taken while I was out and about on errands the last few days.

Bindweed grows all over town and is something of a pest, but this member of the Morning Glory family is still pretty.

  1. I love morning glories even though one crept through my window once and threatened to strangle me while I slept. Still I plant them to festoon the trellis over my simply must not stand still too long near them or risk them using you as a post.

    Lovely pix as usual.

  2. Bindweed tries to take over the manor every single year. I should just let it!

  3. Both wonderful pictures! Bindweed really can take over out in these parts--the bindweed here all has white blossoms & can really overrun a garden. Eberle has had pretty good results in controlling it by heaping up straw bales on it.

  4. catching up.... thought of you on friday when i met a fellow who sells his bird photos in central park - he is positioned by a vantage point where one can watch the pair of central park hawks which are quite famous.

    this photographer is good but his photos aren't nearly as good as yours. i did buy one card and thought roy could do something like this in newport!!

    don't know what newport is like for vendors, but in interviewing this fellow he does make some bucks and as i said his work is not nearly as good as yours! (but don't tell him I said that) I told him about your calendars and he said he does calendars to along with cards and biggish prints.

    okay, i'm slowly going to catch up on the bloggyhood, but right now i'm feeling good as i caught up on roy's world!

    now it's back to work, to make up for being away and playing!!

  5. the web and those spider legs! I like morning glories too...the blossoms are such a pretty color. I laughed out loud when I read the comment Lo left.
