I would love to see the places where others live. You dont have to say where it is, but a pic would be nice.

Here is the area where I live in Australia. Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image I live about 10 Km from this beach. The shot of the lighthouse is a beatiful one and was taken on a foggy morning.
I thought I was wrong once, but I was mistaken.

WOW your pics are LOVELY Constantine, what a LUSH place!!! :thumbsup:

And that snow looks AWESOME TheTerrorist_75. We havnt had snow going over a ft deep for perhaps 20yrs now, i'm sure i remember some VERY deep snow as a child (but i was shorter ha ha, no but definately deep enough to buid a snowman and still have left overs mmm). We dint have ANY this year, for the very first time, well in the mountains Yes of course but on the mainland NONE!

Is that what its like at yours now? :flowers:

Those pictures are from our little lake effect snow storm last month. The national media made a big deal of it because some areas here got up to 11 feet in just a few days. In our county we are used to 200 inches of average snowfall except for northern areas of the county (Tughill Plateau) which usually get hit with 300-400 inches anually.

There is no one behind the tree. I take that pic last Spring.
This is the farm where My Father and Mother-in-Law live. It's very beautiful.

It's scientific name is "Wisteria Sinensis". :thumbsup:
I don't know its name in English.

In English it's Chinese Wisteria or just Wisteria. Then sometimes the variety of Wisteria is added to the name. Such as: Alba (white; very fragrant), Black Dragon (double; dark purple), Purpurea (pale purple), Plena (double), Caroline (blue-purple), Variegata (varigated leaves).

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)


A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)


"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination circles the world." Albert Einstein (1879-1955)
