Bridgewater panorama

Category: 2014,Independence — Ian C. @ 7:50 pm

A few years ago, our home was grass or trees; and in the coming soon next phase of Independence construction, the cleared but empty land across from the end of our road will soon be houses and townhouses – indeed the first three townhouse blocks have begun construction at the far side.
So before it’s impossible to see the weather, blocked by houses, here’s a view:

Maybe I should remember to take this view again, a year from now!

Uncurling leaves

Category: 2014 — Ian C. @ 5:57 pm

Some time ago, we purchased this indoor plant from local Lowes; I was quite convinced that it was a plastic plant – the leaves felt plastic, and the gravel “soil” was GLUED in place! But Margaret was convinced it was real, and the plant proved her right by growing a number of new shoots, that are now uncurling leaves all the way along them:

I have no idea what it’s called, but the new leaves are quite interesting as they uncurl over the last few days:

I suspect this plant will be too big for indoors, in a year or two!

Rainbow above

Category: 2014,Arty pics,DisneyWorld,Independence — Ian C. @ 7:41 pm

Our regular sunny / wet / stormy / whatever weather brings us tonight a beautiful rainbow over our home (even a partial double):
Rainbow over home

The rainbow appears to start right over Magic Kingdom, same spot we see the evening fireworks!
Rainbow over Magic Kingdom

Meanwhile, looking the other way we get to watch yet another lovely sunset!
