Re: PICTURE POST II!

^Those pictures made me miss our Dalmatians


Today I filtered this years x-mas snaps. Here is my shelf of bitters:


From left:
  • This years x-mas snaps.¹
  • Amber.
  • Mint.
  • St John's wort.
  • Yarrow.
  • Japanese rose petals.
  • Japanese rose hips.
  • Myrica gale (aka. Bog Myrtle and Sweet Gale).
  • Walnut.
  • Mint (different sort).
  • "Dutch Bitter".²
The small bottle behind the Dutch Bitter isn't of my own making but a locally made Calva.
______________

¹ - With both Star Anise and Liquorice Root in the mix it is rather liquorice-ish.
² - A mix of herbs I bought because I liked the fact that I only recognized about half of them

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Ruaidhri, so sorry for you loss. Lily was such a beautiful looking dalmatian. And it's so heart warming to hear about your relationship with her. Dogs can be amazing animals, so thoughtful and emotional. At least she led a good long life and you've got many great memories to cherish.

You're too kind, thank you! Nature decided to show off that day!

It's a pity it lasts such a short time, blink and you miss it!

Re: PICTURE POST II!

The problem with not keeping up with this thread is that I end up with so many pictures I want to comment on. But since I'm so far behind, I'll just do this...

Beautiful children, cat and dog (RIP Lily). Sad pics of the Jersey shore.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

An Officer, where did you take those photos? I absolutely love that one featuring the blanket of leaves all over. We had a terrible autumn in our area this past season... leaves got blown off before they could really peak.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Gary7, I took this in Regent's Park, London, UK. You're in New York?

Just a few days before that, when I went there, not not enough leaves had fallen, and directly the day after I took this, it rained quite heavily for some time, so it was a very small window of opportunity to get those crisp fresh leaves, and I happened to be in the right place at the right time. Nature is awesome when it does stuff like that!

Poor Lily. What a beautiful dog she was.

I just finished a necklace for my mom:



And another for my sister:



She's going to Paris over Christmas break, lucky!

And finally, I made an ornament out of something I stitched years ago but forgot about:

We certainly enjoyed the convention and our time with the actors.

My wife was very excited here, but was absolutely floored when we got our picture taken with George Takei. That's the one she'll remember most.
