All my fuchsis are still flowering, also some of my roses.  The St Johns Wort shrub is still covered too

Sorry can't put the pics on here.

Ena Harkness rose, that brings back so many memories and recollections of other old rose names and of happy times. Lovely pictures everyone.

A few chilly, 'non flowering' ones to contrast with the lovely bright pix here!

Beautiful scenes, Fairygirl.....thanks for sharing them with us.

Thank you David- very kind. There's plenty of 'em! Unfortunately the weather at the top of our hills isn't always great for taking pix- often it's a case of take one as quick as you can of the cairn in the clouds before your hands freeze- and that's in summer! On a good day though - the views are breathtaking. My skills and camera are not up to the task I'm afraid, but it's the memory they create which matters to me. 

I enjoyed seeing those glass sculptures earlier- I took this one in Murano a few years ago. Amazing what can be created:

Fg - thanks so much for those wonderful views 

17/11/2013 at 11:27

Let me make it clear, this is a googled pic and not one I have taken. Whilst on the subject of glass art, I just wanted to post this pic of ice sculpture.....an art that has always fascinated me.

That's pretty splendid! I find it fascinating too but also quite sad that they can't be kept forever. The water droplets from the wings are just beautiful.

Fantastic photos everyone.

It was lovely to see your photo of Perranporth beach Nikki as a live a couple of miles from there. The big rock is called Chapel Rock and there is a christmas tree up there with lights every year. Last year someone put a piano on top as well. How they ever got it up goodness knows.

star gaze lily - there appears to be a problem with the messaging on here.  I have reported it and once it is fixed I will message you about the attaching of the pics.

17/11/2013 at 16:57

Pottie Pam.  I would love to see Chapel Rock with a Christmas tree on!  We've had some fantastic family holidays there.  You are very lucky to live in such a wonderful location.

17/11/2013 at 16:59

Thank you   I have looked again and again and could not find your answer although it was notifying me on my snail

fairy girl - love the snowy shots.....lets hope we get some more snow up in the mountains this year!

Nikki- we don't need to wait for winter- this is near the summit of Nevis, taken a few years back - in early July!

http://i1331.photobucket.com/albums/w595/fairygirl55/aug09306_zpscdeeb59c.jpg

 That's the gully that people don't know is there if they go up in snow - they walk across the summit from the arrete on the far side and fall down it.

On a cheerier note - this is the grotto in the Boboli gardens in Florence!

Loved the star picture Bob.  All too technical for me but fascinating.

Fairygirl, "magical" photos indeed.  See very little snow down here 

17/11/2013 at 22:12

Fairy girl - Ben Nevis is a mountain I have never walked on....but if I do I will watch out for the gully!

David - love the cosmos!
