My Recent Photos
A visit to the Royal Tyrrell Museum was a must. It is a world renown museum for dinosaurs. It is situated in a provincial park which has yield fossils.
This is an ammonite on display in the museum. Gorgeous color and a wonderful shape.
This is a beautiful stone I purchased in the gift shop. I think it might be quartz but I will have do more research.
The dinosaur below is a Dimetrodon. It is an extinct genus of synapsids that lived during the Cisuralian, around 295–272 million years ago. It is a member of the family Sphenacodontidae.
Flowers are always objects for my camera. The top one is Ninebark - Summer Wine. The middle one is Echinacea Tiki Torch, a hybrid orange coneflower with large showy pumpkin-orange colored flowers. The bottom is a beautiful sample of clover.
This is a pottery button about 2.5 inches across. I bought it at the Pottery Guild's gift shop. My aunt and I visited the shop before my reception on June 30th. It's nice to support other artists.
Blackberry tea with a few dried cranberries and a beautiful rose. I took advantage of a Goodwill special recently of 3 vases for $1.00. This square cube vase has a hole in one corner and a slant on the opposite corner. I chose my Tea Lover's Teacup by Steeped Tea which is the same light clear glass to repeat the blown glass theme. I served the cranberries in a small crystal glass.
