Terrific flower shots, Alienesse. That last one of the thistle looks quite alien, with an ironic hint of Mickey Mouse behind it.
Thank you, Gary7! You're right, it does look like it has little Mickey Mouse ears. I hadn't noticed that.

It is crowded and trappy, but my family had fun there anyway a few weeks back. Can't believe how Disneyland like it is compared to the late 80's when I was there for business.
It really has gone downhill since then. You can't even find a decent hooker there these days.

Well there are still plenty of people looking to remove money from the tourists...

It's mostly your legs. You're supposed to stand up on the footholds and limit the lifting that the arms actually do. That said, your forearms will hurt a lot the first few times. It's a ton of fun, though - I highly recommend it.

She's adorable. I miss my two grandmas. I've always had an affinity for elderly people, especially old women.

Me too, they always have interesting stories. I used to live next door to an old widow. I would go over and play Scrabble on a Saturday night. She couldn't spell too well, but she could drink me under the table.

Rhubarbodendron reminded me of a trip I made to London a few years back, and one of the peculiar things I saw through a window:



Here's a perspective shot that was fun to see in person. The blue "track lighting" ran all around the area, giving a cool mysterious glow to the night.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

^Nice pics -very 'unreal'

This month I've been making three different bitters:


(Left to right)
Achillea millefolium.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Achillea_millefolium
Clusters of the flower is used.
Primary traditional uses: Reducing fever and/or enhancing appetite.

Hypericum perforatum.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypericum_perforatum
The yellow, not yet opened, flowers are used.
(The essence is darker red).
Primary traditioanl use: Mild antidepressant.

Rosa rugosa.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosa_rugosa
Petals are used.
Primary traditional use: Mild sedative.

Yet to come is the 'bitter' produced with the hips from Rosa rugosa -and possibly hazelnuts -and maybe walnuts -and definitely whataretheycalled? small orange berries... I'll post about that at a later date...
