So ... Here it is .... an autumn picture taken from my front yard (next to the stoop) that I think is Desktop worthy. Been on my desktop since Saturday


The red leaves are from the english primrose (yellow flowers, way back in July),and the green ones in the foreground are from lillies of the valley.

I still have this as my screensaver!

Me too ... lazy I guess, but for next year I'll have a few other options - for the Christmas season anyways.

Had you not seen that view before? I'm sure I've posted a similar picture on this thread during the summer. & in the bar & grill, I posted (a long time ago) a similar picture showing one of the last blasts of the 2006-2007 winter. I'll be digging it out of photobucket later this evening.
All the ones I recall seeing have been facing the house and all your pretty plants!
The last blast of 2008 will behere before we know it!

Hey Richard

If you want, I can send you a full sized version of just about any picture I took on this thread - for YOUR screen saver.

Here's a pretty picture of Downtown Timmins - last picture I took before I left town for the big city couple a weeks ago


It was near 9 am and the street lights were still turned on. Think that'll make a nice screen saver next december...
