Ornamental Cabbage

Have been busy with family matters lately and have been lax about posting here.  Sorry about that.

Yesterday I saw this ornamental cabbage plant while out for lunch.  Thank goodness for phone cameras.  Took a quick shot in the rain and drizzle that was preparing to become snow flurries.   Do you believe it?  Snow in November in the South!

This week we had several lovely sunrises and sunsets.


Went to a local cemetery the other day to see if it would be a good place to go to write.  It was wonderful there.  Looking around I spied a bush sporting these wonderful red was cheery.   I don't have a clue what this bush isn't holly.  Anyone out there know?

SkyWatch-Sunset Last Night

Thank you SkyWatch team.  To see more skywatch images from around the world, please click on the icon above.

Usually, I stay away from electrical and phone lines when shooting, however last night the color was rich and the lines didn't seem to take away from the image.

This is a first. I am dictating this  entry from my phone using Dragon. I love this program. I can talk just like I would be talking to you in person and the words  appear. Dragon is really good at spelling.  I do the punctuation.  Am thrilled to be able to sign in from my phone and write my blog... What a timesaver this is going to be.

Next I have to figure out how to add photographs from my phone. Then we will be good to go.

Oh, and the best part is:  Dragon for the iPhone is a free download.  Hooray!

To petals of crepe blossoms
Poised in morning fog. --EB

Would love to give the creator of granny and the rocking chair credit, but I have no idea  who made either of them.  Decided to use one of my painting programs to depict her spirit.

Not everyone understands still life.  I love creating still life images with hidden meanings and emotional content.  It is up to the viewer to discern any meanings, or feelings, for him, or herself.
