Spring in the Backyard – Touched Up

I shot and posted this image earlier but brought it back up for a little work.  Particularly the Flowering Crab and Daisy Plants.

Foggy Spring Morning

I believe this was shot in the Spring of 2016 but perhaps this Spring. Remember, my Point and Shoot’s date and time stamp feature has stopped working.  It’s set, forever, on December 1979.

The Last Train through Town

 

I shot this image, the last train through Peoria Heights, Illinois, on May 9th, 2009.  I posted it back then but it was lost when I lost my hard drive – fortunately, not all the images.  My IT Guru recovered many of them for me.

The train engineer, shown in the image, told me, “this is it, the last diesel or any other train that’ll ever be seen on this track. He was correct.  The Peoria Park District purchased the right of way, or made some agreement with the railroad, however that’s done, and the rest is history.  As most of you know, the area is now a bicycle/walking track.  Right off the back of our property.

Landscaping – always a continuing process

Landscaping_wm

We have been doing some landscaping over the past years.  Just beyond our fence is the bicycle/walking/jogging track developed and laid by our Park District.  My wife, Jean, with the help of one of our daughter’s, Stephanie, get all the credit here. The work in progress,  the upper left of the image, is a Trumpet Vine.  The large trellis has yet to be fastened to the fence.  It’s attached to a smaller trellis with green garden tape/velcro at this point.
