Photo Friday: Cactus Close-Up - April 15, 2011

Last Sunday my small humans and I visited the local annual cactus show. It's a small show with one room devoted to selling cactus, pots, soil, etc. and one room devoted to cactus judging. I generally like to take close up photos of things. I like to show just a bit and let everyone else imagine the rest. I don't do that all the time of course, but I have with the cactus and succulents. They have an otherworldly quality about them especially when viewed closely.

My thoughts go out to the people of Japan and everyone who has been or will be affected the 8.9 earthquake that hit off the coast of Japan today. If you look, and you are so inclined, you will find many ways to help.

This is a selection from all the photos that I took this week excluding the Hop Brook photos, which were posted earlier.

From my Borders:

Spring is making itself known in between snow, rain and floods.

Photo Friday - More About My Borders - March 4, 2011

I received an email early this morning that prices had been marked down again at my local Borders.

I've been stopping by regulary to show my support for the staff. As you can imagine, this is a difficult time for them. My local Borders was a particulary beautiful store...

Color me sad.

Photo Friday - Borders - February 25, 2011

I stopped my my ex-Borders, or as I've taken to calling it Forders (Formerly Borders), to see the carnage. I hope that the people who are swarming the shop for a mere 20% off realize that had they shopped there regulary and become a BordersPlus member they would have gotten a lot more off most of the time. I'd like to remind them to treat with respect both the former Borders employees who are now working for the liquidators to wind down the store as well as the books. The store is ashambles - CDs left on the book shelves by someone who decides they really don't want them, books placed wherever for the same reason, shelves in disarray, books damaged.

Please people... be respectful, be kind. I am thinking very dark thoughts about some of my fellow human beings these days when I see how they act. Behave yourselves!

The cafe was closed the day before the liquidation sale started. Now the cafe supplies are on sale.

I will continue to visit my Forders until the bitter end if only to be supportive of the staff.

I have something special for all of you on Friday so I'm putting up some cheerful sunny photos today. More snow is predicted for this week. Frankly I don't really won't to look at more snow. I want to look at flowers and butterflies!

Photo Friday - For Dakota - January 21, 2011

Guess what? It snowed again. I haven't seen this much snow in years. I have to back into the garage because there is so much snow at the end of the driveway right now I can't back out. We're going to move some of that snow over the weekend. I hope. So yet again I'm posting snow photos that I took this morning.

I think it's now snowy enough here that these photos will be for Dakota who no longer lives where it snows a lot. Oh, and we're expecting more snow on Tuesday.
