And almost gone for the season. This photo of some Nearly Wild floribunda roses was taken back in June of this year. There are still roses around but their time is running out as today is the first day of autumn in this hemisphere. I will miss the roses but I know they will be back next spring. In the meantime I look forward to the leaves changing color.
Avast ye landlubbers! Well shiver me timbers, it’s talk like a pirate day today. And as me last share (do pirates share?) on me blog of images from Dragoncon, here are a few of me fellow seadogs.
Yo ho ho!
It’s not from the future, but the unique architecture that is the downtown Atlanta Marriott reminded me of some sci-fi movies I’ve seen where humans live in giant hive like dwellings. It is 50 stories high with around 1,600 rooms plus a cult following of it’s old carpeting.
Which edit do you like best?
Seems having a very large ferris wheel with cars that hold several people at once has become quite popular. I’ve not been on any of them but I’ve seen the one in London, Las Vegas and now this one in Atlanta, Georgia. While some who have issues with heights do not like these rides I have enjoyed them in the past… except for when riding one of the older styled ones that seated just two and it would stop and leave me far up in the air while they loaded and unloaded.
Is riding a ferris wheel a yes or no for you?
Before heading off to the airport and back home, we did a walk around the Atlanta downtown area and I was pleasantly surprised to see this butterfly fluttering about on a flowered bush next to a busy public parking lot. I will miss both butterflies and flowers soon as the clock is counting down until summer is gone and autumn is here.
I’m not sure what kind of butterfly this is but if you know please leave the name in the comments; thank you.
