Plant Gladiolus for Bright Summer Color

Gladiolus is a genus of perennial flowering plants in the iris family. It is sometimes called the sword lily and is a beautiful addition to any summer garden. If you plant them in the Spring they will bloom in Summer. Plant them again in the summer and they will adorn your fall garden.

Jason Gamrath at The Phipps Conservatory Part 3

This summer is special at the Phipps Conservatory because there is a special exhibition of the fine art glass sculptures of Jason Gamrath.There are always a few glass sculptures in the eight rooms of the conservatory but this year the exhibition adds over 80 works from the brilliant young artist. Each room is dramatically changed by the addition of his artwork. The show is not to be missed and runs throughout the summer. This is my last post on this great exhibit, if you miss it, you can’t say you weren’t warned.

The Phipps Summer Garden

I love having a membership at the Phipps because we can visited each season and see an entirely different garden. In addition to the special exhibition of the fine art glass sculptures of Jason Gamrath there is a lot to see. Its the first time I have visited the Children’s Garden and it was fun to watch the kids at play.

Scenic Views Candidate #4—Summer Moon

I am going to be posting images that I may have posted before with a candidate # thereby collecting a list of what I feel would be likely candidates to print for a gallery show of new images of only digital photography. Right now I am reviewing images that are scenicor from nature. This is a blend of two images taken in the pocono mountains and merged in Photoshop.

Summer Hiatus

It’s time for a break. Like this turtle below, time to doze in the sun. We are off to visit our Chicago family and when we return we are busy with ballgames and barbecues. So I won’t be posting for a while. Hope everyone is having a great summer and I will be back with new images and non-political thoughts in a couple of weeks. Take care of each other!

Mellon Park

When I lived in Pittsburgh back in the day, I never hung out at Mellon Park. Frick Park and Schenley Park were are parks of choice. Both had lots of great places for walking dogs and throwing frisbees. Since returning though we have discovered Mellon Park which borders Fifth Avenue and Beechwood Boulevard. It is a lot smaller than the other two parks but has nice paths for walking, beautiful gardens and outdoor sculptures and this lovely fountain where you can contemplate your place in this world.
