Got It



I finally captured the luminous reflections of morning sun on loblolly pine needles in the canopy. It doesn't show up as well in blogspot as it does in iPhoto, but I think you can see what I mean about the mystery of the shine. (Referring to Oct 22 post---Loblolly Canopy) dkm

Do you get a crink in your neck or just lots of massages ? :)

dkm said...

Another new word. Crink. NZ term or Pukeko term?
Speaking of NZ, we are traveling in Los Angeles today and met a lovely couple from Hastings near Napier. They didn't know any of you, but send their greetings!
And yes, neck is feeling a bit crinky.

Hehee .. Looks like a PG term .. wuddled mords from :-
a)Crinkle - to form wrinkles, twists or folds and ..
b) Crick - A painful muscular cramp or spasm, as of the neck or back, making it difficult to move.
Good spotting !

hahaha I would have said 'crink' too.

I often say there's a crink in something. I didn't realise it wasn't a word!

I'd say you might be all stove up, as Grandaddy Gunn would say.

And Debbie, I want to start a leaf book at the lake with my girls. Pick a leaf, look it up to identify it, preserve it. Do you have a good book in mind I might use? I just know the basic ones but I'm ready to learn, too!

loyal follower here. I shall remain anonymous for now but this has to be the best blog coming out of little Decatur, GA.

To Bibi---All stove up! Haha! Meaning stiff in the joints? Only a true native of the southeastern U.S. would know that one. I'm a transplant from Kansas, so I had to look it up :-)

Re: field guides, the ones I use and like are the Peterson Guides and the ones by Audubon Society, available in almost any good bookstore. There are others, I'm sure, but those are the ones I know. Make sure, whatever you buy, that it is for trees of the Eastern U.S., not the western region---they're very different.

Leaf book sounds like fun. Great thing to do with your grands!

Those are indeed gorgeous photographs. I was a bit confused at first, and grew to enjoy the topsy turvy quality of the framing.
