A Weekend of Deep Sky Auroras in US April 2011

Space Weather News for April 3, 2011

DEEP SKY AURORAS: A solar wind stream hit Earth’s magnetic field over the weekend, sending a wave of “deep sky auroras” over northern-tier US states. The lights were pale-white or even invisible to the naked eye, but digital cameras revealed spectacular colors and luminous shapes above Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota, and elsewhere.

Visit SpaceWeather.com for images and more information about this phenomenon.

Hot weather but with red flowers

No, I am not logged in to WordPress to discuss the yays and nays of global warming but I do have to say that today’s warm weather in the Atlanta, GA area is an improvement over the last week or so – we’ve had a heat index of over 100 degrees F for days – arghh!

This means that asphalt parking lots turn into virtual tar pits that wilt my face off (and I mean that almost literally!)

So as an offering to the asphalt gods, I want to share with you this flower photo taken by my daughter Maya.

It’s a little beauty she discovered blooming and posing prettily in the steam of a restaurant parking lot in the Atlanta area – and the plant seems to be soaking up our excessive heat with nary a wilt much better than I (a native of Georgia) ever could!

Looks like an impatiens to me – you?

Mohair Lace Baby Wraps as photography props!

In the realm of fancy baby photography you’d have to go a long way to find a lovelier mohair Baby Wrap knitted in a certain shade of blue and created strictly for photographing purposes Only.

Here you see a Baby Wrap my daughter knitted…its fuzzy glow will add to a baby’s angelic look, right? Purple and Pale Yellow Wraps are available as well and they ship from Atlanta, Georgia.

Plus, there may be a Pale Pink Cocoon still in stock but no promises there – my daughter Maya is on Etsy’s Fast Team so you have to be quick and not dally about when it comes to ordering her handspun, dyed, and painted yarns for your Special Projects!

More Baby Wrap details here….

Update Feb 2, 2013: no, clicking the above link no longer takes you to the correct location! So I spoke with my daughter concerning Mohair Lace Baby Wraps and the yarn to knit them and find that, if interested, you will want to visit her website Springtree Road and contact her (Maya) for yarn availability! jc

Vintage hat of flowers – photo 2

With Spring 2010 on the menu for March 20, I looked in my files for a photo with a spring-like flavor to it and found another in the series of Vintage Hat portraits of a certain 4-year-old who was only 3 when these photos were taken by her Mom. Click for updated photos of Miss V and her baby bro!

Yes, ‘A Vintage Hat of Flowers’ has been quite a popular offering here at Jude’s Theshold so I hope you’ll enjoy another view of a stylish young lady in her flowery hat just waiting for spring to burst out all over…and the more flowers, the merrier!

Oxalis Time in Georgia: May 2009

Awww! One of my offspring has written a brief photo journal piece about being at my house and nostalgia from her childhood days on her blog Spring Tree Road if you’d care for a spring *flowered peek!

*oxalis blooming pink although the clumps are mixed with smidges of white blossoms, too. Charming little lads ‘n’ lassies are they.
