Re: never-ending gallery

...those flowers that whetted your curiosity may, i believe, be called 'orange hawkweed'. not very popular with gardeners, apparently... That is, indeed, what they are. They are not popular with my local horticultural and environmental authorities, either: a very brief online search resulted in num...

[drawn a blank]

I honestly have no idea how to respond to Geoffrey's last post. I am speechless.

Interesting flowers -- not something I've seen before. Any idea what they are?

Re: never-ending garrulity

...the original physical work (see below)... That one is best of all! I admit that I have yet to fully appreciate computer-generated or computer-enhanced art (compared to non-digital, old-fashioned media). To me, there is something particularly special about art created directly by a person: one ca...

Re: never-ending gallery

... incidentally, i favour using 300/400 gram textured grain paper, as a 'terrain' effect can sometimes be more interesting than flat paper - but that is purely a personal preference. here again is the earlier picture, to compare to a revised version :-) First, I also sometimes use heavy textured p...

HAGG IS THE QUESTION

Hello solong! I don't want you to think that we are all too sheepish to respond your poetic efforts. I have ruminanted over this one for a day or two, and I've come to the conclusion that it is gastronomically funny.

Re: never-ending gallery

... tears welled in my eyes during the ' papagena, papageno ' duet, and should anyone have turned and seen me i would surely have died from embarrassment... I think it is quite natural to be moved to tears by joyous and wonderful music -- tears are an outpouring of emotion, and it shows that you ha...

Re: never-ending gallery

...it is often difficult to ascertain what is false and what is genuine, even within ourselves. ... but how does a subjective mind recognise the difference between host and gatecrasher, sincerity and subterfuge - and even if that were possible, would we not be entering the dreaded domain of psychol...

Re: never-ending gallery

Re: never-ending haberdashery

The above photo of young Geoffrey in short trousers reminds me: I noticed that the "short suit" (a suit with short trousers/pants) is apparently a "hot" fashion item for men this season, no longer simply a staple of English school-boy attire. So, Geoffrey, if you happen to sport this look on your tr...

Re: never-ending flattery

dear lisa a beautiful letter. thank you so much. i do so appreciate you.... ... it is important for me to emphasise that though a person's creativity can be noteworthy, it is not necessarily something deserving praise. in other words, as leonard cohen or a neuroscientist might say, they are born li...

Re: never-ending flattery

i am astonished at the large number of views this thread receives, and hope it's a positive sign. ... this thread receives so little feedback that i don't really know what is wanted, or indeed whether a cessation of this gallery would be preferred...

Re: never-ending galley

...the aubergine (a far nicer word than 'eggplant') ... Quite agree -- although in Canada, it is sadly known as an "eggplant". This odd-looking fruit has been (and still is) known by many names, including the rather charming "mad apple". For those with a taste for etymology (and/or the aubergine an...
