Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Leaving on a Jet Plane

Today I'm frantically gathering to pack using the list I created over the last month.

Lots to do before we depart on a jet plane.

Heading to Scotland.


Lots to share upon my return.

It must be Done

I need to take a break from blogging.

Several demands on my time plus an upcoming extended trip require that I spend less time on photography and blogging.  
I am chair of a committee at church looking for a new pastor.  
I am Nana to granddaughter #3 and her mommy needs help twice a week for now as she prepares to return to the workforce.  
I have to help edit the Vantage House newsletter for October.  
And on top of all that I need to get ready for traveling abroad at the end of this month.  

So blogging friends, I may still have time to read your posts and occasionally comment, but no posts for awhile.  Look for my return in mid-October.

 I promise to regale you then with photos from Scotland.

Memphis Fences

Went back into the files to find some fences to share on Fences hosted by Gosia.

These photos date to last January when we visited memphis, TN.

First a fence around playground equipment at Graceland.


Also at Graceland the fence around the field where Elvis had horses.


Here is the family graveyard at Graceland, notice the fence in the foreground and around the fountain in the center.


Here's view of the Mississippi from the top of the Pyramid with a fence to keep you safe.


At in the historic district there's a iron fence separating neighboring properties.

Random Assortment

I have had these photos saved for what I don't know.  With nothing else to share at present thought I'd show you these.

I think they qualify as Treasures.

From Cornish Flat, NH I share these two millstones.  One has been repurposed into a monument of sorts.


The other just  graces the ground.


In Harpers Ferry, WV, first a sun umbrella over a burial plot.


I had to ask why it was there and the answer was for the renovators working on the gravestones.

On the Maryland mountain side across the river was this ghost sign.  Only the borders remain to say there once was a sign there.



Also in Harpers Ferry, where the Potomac River on the left met the Shenandoah River on the right - can you see the line?


In Frederick, MD I share these signs.  The first was embedded in the pavement advertising a watchmaker or jeweler, I think,


And on the side of the building was another ghost sign.
