Sunday reflections

One of the unforeseen consequences of staying in a really fine bed and breakfast with a lovely garden is the desire to fix up your own house and garden when you get home. I had hoped to go to Roundrock today, but . . .

_______________

Whilst in Oregon, I got a short training from my web designer on the use of Photoshop Elements. The knowledge is now lost, all lost, but maybe an idea or two will resurface. Still, I don’t really want to doctor the photos I give you of Roundrock since I want you to see what I see there. But maybe I can come up with some other uses.

I mostly get spam comments on this blog (though I’m always grateful for everything you have to say), but even though I suspect the comment I’m about to comment about was bot generated (it was made to a post from last October, and it begins “Greetings friend of nature”) I think it is worthy.

Hike For Discovery is a fund-raising technique used by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Basically, if you’re a hiker going on one of their 27 expeditions, you pledge to raise a certain amount of money. If you want to support a hiker, you can contribute toward that person reaching the pledged amount.

My daughter had run a Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon through this organization several years ago and was personally enriched by the experience and managed to raise her pledged amount.

The deadline has nearly arrived for submissions to the next Festival of the Trees. This month’s host is Wren of Wrenaissance Reflections. Send her your posts or links by this weekend at treefest [at] wrenaissance [dot] com.

The Festival is now a year old and you can help sustain the glory by being a host yourself. If you’re interested, send me or Dave (bontasaurs [at] yahoo [dot] com) an email

It seems that I am not the only one with a disappearing lake. (Thanx, Duff!)

    Thanks for another picture of the lake with leaves on the hardwoods, even it is a reflection. Sort of reminds me of a certain painting.

    If a certain lake in the Ozarks is suddenly full, we’ll know what happened in Chile, won’t we?

    I’m always inspired when I see beautiful gardens, then I come home and can’t even visualize what I want to do here.

    One of the reasons I use Photoshop is because the camera often does not reproduce the image that I saw, and Photoshopping allows me to work with the curves, contrasts, and light to more match reality.

    I read about the lake that disappeared in chile the other day. Interesting phenomenon.

    I never photoshop my pictures and I actually think this is some sort of philosophical dilemma- I mean Edward Curtis and Ansel Adams didn’t have photoshop…
    I enjoy the images of Roundrock, both in your photos and in your words.

  5. vicki Says:

    Oh! I meant to say this: Lake Victoria in Africa (you remember Africa, right?) goes dry every 14,000 years or so- and it’s the second largest fresh water lake in the world. Lake Superior, on the other hand, hasn’t gone dry in eons.

  6. FC Says:

    Our pond is gone … AGAIN.

    I fear I may have to beseech the great diety Hurrakan for rain.

    This could get nasty.

  7. kim Says:

    our little half-in-nevada lake is disappearing too.
    edward curtis would definitely have fotoshopped, if he’d had digital.
    fc- what is this “rain”?
