Black and Gold City

I found this unremarkable color image in my archive and decided it would look better in selective color. As the sun set it caused the buildings to light up as if a golden spotlight was shining on them.

The Vitava River at Prague

Revisiting and editing my image library always provides surprises. I didn’t think this shot of the river was important because it was not the famous Charles Bridge. Yet the view of the river with the church in the background is lovely none the less

This Years Crop

When our new neighbors put in a fence I wondered how it would change our backyard. It only improved it by giving us a little more privacy I thought. Then I realized the real advantage. The deer that would every year travel up from Frick Park to eat our lilies would no longer have access to our back garden.

For the last two years we have had amazing blooms. This year they not only survived the deer but also a terrible storm that brought down trees but not our five feet tall lilie

Happy Birthday America

Independence Day is one of my favorite holidays. Except for the fireworks. I use to love fireworks as a kid. However now I realize how upsetting they are to veterans and also to pets I have revised ny opinion. However time for a great barbecue with friends and usually great weather helps us appreciate our freedoms and hopefully we can hold on to these in troubling time.

Better Than Ever

Our perennial garden in Regent Square gets better every year. Now that we have figured out how discourage the wandering deer from Frick Park, each year our perennials grow larger and are mre numerous. Here are a couple of this years day lilies.

Our New Neighbors

I had intended this Spring to be the time when I finally got some images of the Cardinals that live in our Golden Dawn Sequoia. Unfortunately they seem to have moved out. However I have been noticing a couple of Blue Jays hanging around so I just adjusted my focus. Get it?

Miss Iris is Ready for Her Close Up!

Spring is a rolling cascade of blooms in Pittsburgh. Crocus give way to daffodils and then tulips and now the queen of early spring. The Bearded Iris is truly a majestic bloom with a deep rich color.

Bleeding Heart First Bloom

One of my favorite perennials in our garden is the bleeding heart. It has the most delicate blooms. Each year the plant gets bigger and it will bloom for weeks.Soon the plant will get bushy and covered in blooms and our garden will be full of delicate hearts.

Remembering Tulips in Regent Square

One of my favorite spring flowers is the Rembrandt Tulip. Unfortunately this one is a couple years old. We have had to stop growing tulips because the deer from Frick Park consider them to be part of a special buffet. The farther away you get from the park the more chance you have of your tulips surviving. We are too close for tulips but that is a blessing I happily accept.

The Oval at Schenley Park

Since I was a child growing up in Pittsburgh I have always loved going to the Schenley Oval. Schenley Park has been a regular place for me to hang out. As a kid I would go hiking with friends. I taught my wife how to drive there and it was the first spot we took our first puppy. Now we go to walk on the track or just enjoy the view of the city.
