Gumbo's Pic of the Day, Oct 10, 2013: Sunflowers, Cranbrook, British Columbia

DrFumblefinger ·
 Sunflowers are happy things!  Like the gentle quacking of ducks or the gurgle of a small creek down a mountain, they make me smile.  I'm not sure if they're called sunflowers because they look a little like the sun or whether it's...

I like this one because it reminds me of a time when my son was a naval fire fighter and was talking about becoming a smoke jumper after he was discharged. He changed his mind, something for which I'll be forever grateful. Read 'Young Men and Fire', by Norman Maclean and understand.

When everyone's running away from a fire, they're jumping from planes to run toward it. Another good fictional book is the...

Monday this week was a public holiday (UK) so I went off in search of new lambs being born in the local farms. No lambs yet - but the Aberdeen Angus family were having a family day ! Had to wait for an hour before the young Angus got to his feet.

Re: September 3, 2016: Rainbow(s) over the Kootenay Rockies

An ever changing canvas of art. Sometimes you just have to stop - and take in the beauty of nature. As the sun was setting last week - the sky turned a shade of purple. And the cars that were white - had a UV look to them. Spooky - never seen it before. Probably pollution in the distance. Taken by a friend: Pier Head, Liverpool, England 29 Aug '16
