I’m getting really bad about sharing the pictures I take. This was taken at Ashley’s baby shower a few weeks ago. I understand the blue, since we know the baby will be a boy, but I’m a little confused by the leather boots. I wasn’t actually invited to the shower, but I was able to take a few pictures before and after and had an able assistant planted with a camera to take all the pictures in between (thanks Linn!). If you were at the shower, the rest of the pictures can be found here.
This has got to be one of the worst winters in my memory. Not for the snowfall, which has been minimal, but for the number of gray, dreary, dank and teary days. Normally by this time of year, I’m taking pictures of cherry blossoms and spring ephemerals. This year I’ve resorted to forcing bulbs and photographing them.
One great thing about a visit to the Longwood Conservatory is the multitude of things to photograph. I take my share of flower pics, but particularly enjoy the detail and juxtaposition of the exotics in the greenhouse. I was with a group, and didn’t have time to find the name of the tree with the prehistoric looking thorns on its trunk.
Awhile ago, I decided to move this blog from one platform to another. I kept meaning to do it, and stopped posting pictures until it was done. Well… one thing led to another and I didn’t get around to making the move for five months. It’s done now. Isn’t this a big improvement? Actually, all of the improvements are under the covers for now, but it should allow me to do a few more things going forward.
Anyway, I have a lot of pictures saved up: a trip to San Francisco, another Fenwick vacation, a new genealogy hobby and two weddings! This should provide plenty of fodder for the new Tilted Horizon…
One of the more arduous hikes during the visit to West Virginia was the one to the Hanging Rock Raptor Observatory in Monroe County, WV. Quite a short hike, but very steep and rocky in places.
Part of the trail is on the Allegheny Trail. It was odd to see this small segment of fence in the middle of nowhere.
