The, ‘wet puppy in the rain’ rose is now the colorful rose in the sun with clouds and blue sky.
I wonder if the rain will help this sunflower pump up its petals once again? I will keep an eye on it and photograph its progress.
Shasta Bally, got a nice dusting of snow from Friday’s storm.
This flower, (pictured yesterday as a bedraggled, wet, soggy, yellow and red thing), was basking in the sun today.
the flowers look even brighter and more cheerful since the rain. There
are not a lot of roses left unless one looks carefully, deep in the
bush, to find one or two still hiding from the rose pickers.
Snow On The Volcano
Just before sunset one
of my neighbors came by to let me know that the clouds had lifted off
of Mt. Shasta and that I might want to take a picture. I did.
a lot of pictures today and many of them were sufficiently interesting
to want to share them with you. So today’s blog is less talk, more images.
I took this picture, (above), of the Treehouse Apartments building ‘A’, from Northpoint Drive, about a half mile away.
As I was
putting on my slippers in the morning, I happened to notice that there
is a lot of blue and brown in my world. Most of the things I have, just
came to me when I needed them, so I didn’t really have much say in the
color scheme. I really like these colors. Once again, I am thankful for
my remarkably good fortune.
One last beautiful, colorful, character filled, yellow rose that escaped the stem choppers.
So, there you have a few pictures of the beauty that surrounds me here at the treehouse Apartments in Redding.
Now it’s time
for me to get back to rewriting the iBook for the iPad about the John
Harrison Viola. I made a lot of progress on it last night, once I
figured out how to eliminate the backgrounds and shapes they have for
the design templates in the iBook authoring program. With the dull and
uninspiring frameworks removed, I could replace them with my own
a couple of my own templates for iBook pages to use for the viola book,
and after I put together a few more I hope to try it out on an iPad to
see what it looks like before doing the entire book.
