Follow every ten days for a visual image of each day in September. A pictorial diary of each day, of each month. Every month will be a peek into where I have been, what I am doing, what I find, or what I have seen. I report the weather too. This month so far, rain and more rain. Shots of mostly my garden and a little commentary, but maybe a shot or two of a job site, the farm, the Falls, or anywhere else I find inspiration and my camera is tagging along.
Now this was a surprise! At 6:00 PM today, I received an envelope from Berlin, Germany. I won a contest by: (click the image below to go to her blog)Gesine selected my name from leaving a comment and I won wonderful Linaria seeds. I am not sure what the other ones are, I even tried translation. They are wrapped so pretty and she even crochet me a beautiful flower bookmark. The postcard had a very cool and colorful painting, but I thought you would like to see her nice message. I sent Gesine a thank you a couple of days ago before receiving this today, by mail. It takes a while to send overseas, so hopefully she gets it in a couple of days.
Vielen Dank Gesine. Ich bin heute sehr glücklich. (hope I got that right, my German is never very good)
The Thunder of Niagara Air Show is Saturday and Sunday. I took these images of them practicing about 8 miles away this afternoon with my 300 mm lens. I am surprised when I blew them up they were so clear, even the four little ones on the corner. I plan to take many more images this weekend and much closer. Charging the battery as I type. The show should be fun!
Next post is Hopper Heaven. A farm visit to a place the hoppers are hoppy and happy. And heaven may not be so far off! You have to see why!
