Did You See This??

Lately I have been fascinated by the sunsets. As I was out taking pictures last night, I was treated to Venus!
Can you see her??
You can really see the planet!
I never noticed the sky before I got my camera. At least, I don't remember noticing it.
Now, I am fascinated!!


  1. Using the camera certainly makes us see more than we used to.

    I want to capture more with my camera. Things don't always come out and that is disappointing.

  4. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Niki has answered your question:
    Hi Sissy! Great question.. not necessarily.. It's true that in-ground frames are better insulated against cold, but depending on your zone, you can still enjoy a wide variety of winter veggies. In my upcoming book, we have photos of a gorgeous raised bed cold frame.. Salad greens like spinach, arugula, mache, mizuna, tatsoi, mustard, claytonia, etc would do very well in a raised bed cold frame.

    Also, with raised beds, you can top them with mini hoop tunnels.. If they're raised beds with wood edging simply attach 1 1/2 inch or 2 inch diameter PVC pipes cut into about 8 inch lengths along the side of your bed every 3 feet. These will hold the ends of the 1/2 inch PVC conduit that will form the hoops. Just slide the ends of the hoops in their 'holders' and top with a clear plastic cover - voila!

    Hope that helps!! :)

    I agree that taking photographs really does have a way of focusing your attention on things that you may have previously taken for granted. I find that I notice the sky more and the way sunlight effects the appearance of the landscape.


I would love to hear from you and if you can leave a comment, I will visit your blog, too!
