  12. It is always refreshing to see hibiscus in white. Yes do not pollute pure water :-) I hope the fish will have clear and clean water always. And, that's a lot onions you harvested! I often use them to make omelette (delicious!). I hope the corns will turn out plenty too. Happy gardening!

  20. I think these are splendid photos. I was happy to see your hibiscus. I love them.

    You probably don't remember when people lived and died at home and endured wakes. I wrote about it here. http://bing-it.blogspot.com/

  21. There's that sweet girl of yours! My daughter has 2 Italian Greyhounds, Oliver & Targa, & the smallest one is 9 lbs. I can't imagine how tiny 4 lbs. would be! Oliver & Targa used to come to work with me everyday while my daughter worked. They are my grand-doggies! Well, they all moved to Texas 2-1/2 yrs. ago & I am finally over the separation anxiety, although when I go to visit...they sleep with me!

  22. Hi Prospero, I have been away to my son's for a few days, so didn't see this post until this evening. Your corn looks amazing, so do the onions (was that my little corner?) I love the colours on 'The tourist POV', in fact they are all lovely especially your new 'Angelina' header pic.

  23. Great series of photos! Hibiscus is gorgeous, your “Gibraltar of the North” photo is very interesting with the narrow street half lighted by the sun, Azure and Pastel photos are really beautiful, and the cedar bridge that your dad built is lovely…Beautiful post that I really enjoyed.
