The day in 50 seconds

Fiddling around with time-lapse from still images. This is from Saturday — a gray, rainy morning followed by sun and clouds and finally the sun setting over the ridge. Some Photoshopping of the individual images — especially early and late in the day. But you can see how the changing light affects how the garden and ridge look, for example with the backlighting of the grasses toward the end of the day.

In case you missed it this week, Zonker and Zipper explore the erotica that is bulb catalogs. You can view Start with Monday’s strip and work you’re way through the week by clicking on the next tab.

Email from UPS says my bulb order arrives Tuesday.

While shooting pix the other day I heard the tell-tale squawks of crows harassing a hawk, then they flew right overhead.

Colchicums at Billie Jean Isbell’s garden. Billie Jean hosted our first fall 2009 program of the Adirondack Chapter of the North American Rock Garden Society. Love her garden.
