Were you close to the pond?

Or, may we ponder yonder?

Funny, I see the water lilies. And, I don't see "that pod." Where's the pod with the seeds?

When the seeds fall off ... do they just float in the water? Is that how nature makes water lillies grow?

Yes, this is a very pretty little scene. Thanks for posting.

@Carol It's a bit to the right.

You can see it in this shot.

I focused on the detail at the center and suddenly all the detail in the photograph popped out at me in 3D.

Carol_Herman said...

Wow, that water is really beautifully blue. Too.

Oh, Ann, all of these pictures are so beautiful! I hope people notice the link at 3:06 PM

Very deep thoughts.

But using blue food coloring in the water is cheating.

Where I'm from that's called a swamp.

POTUS tried to upstage the GOP debate, it seems, but Boehner upped the ante. Good for him. The original scheduling of the joint session request was childish.

Pardon me, would you have any Grey Blue Pond?

In the movie Ann Bradley rises from the depths and breaches the surface with a demonic look on her face.

My take-home dropped $309.01 this month. Health insurance costs went up $119 and retirement withholdings went up $299.96. Tax withholdings dropped $109.95 (the new withholdings are done pre-tax).

(None of these savings influence the State's bottom line, of course).

Very true. A nice shot.

I like how the larger picture was edited.

Now we can see the showerhead in context.

Ponder? But I hardly know her.

Hello there.

Irene knocked out our fios saturday night, while I was at the "At the Canna Café... (you cannot say the wrong thing)" until a little while ago a good man came and rescued us back to civilisation..

Its good to be back.. we had a little water seep in the basement.. but we caught it in time.

Ponder the lyrics to Hendrix's Look Over Yonder, recorded with the original Experience line-up in 1968, but not released until after his death.

Watch out for them ameebas in the pond, they gives you th' cold robbies of the brain.

Dust Bunny Queen said...

I swear Ann, you are missing a huge opportunity.

Your photos would make KILLER jigsaw puzzles. Texture, color making a fabulous finished product....what a challenge. The one of the golden fountain (minus the squirrel) would be another difficult and challenging puzzle.

You should market your own line of puzzles.

Serious.

chickenlittle, as if I could afford that with $5K less take home per year.

Did I mention I was paying tuition too? :)

Heh

I'm disappointed you didn't link to the idiotic Dowd column calling Cheney Darth Vader. While reading it it ocurred to me that she's a real life Rita Skeeter.
