    They make these little things that look like the old snake flashlights, that have a clamp on the end for holding the flower still...I've never used one, but lots of guys do....Not sure if they are in the midwest with our winds....

    Gwen,

    I ran into Jknowledge on the Pacific Coast Highway Friday (I knew he was out here and was on the lookout for him) and we went up to Hearst Castle together. I told him I was going to take some pics for this thread. He took some, also. I told him I wondered what people thought about the two fat motorcycle guys who kept taking pictures of flowers.:lol3

    Here's the thread on my ride:http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=364442

    I'm sorry you and Steverino aren't going to be at WestFest. I'll represent SC for you, though.:D

    All the best,
    Chris

    Beautiful Sunday Morning after 4 days of rain...I wish that I was out riding instead of getting ready to go to work after lunch though. :dunno

    Tulips pop up "wild" in my front yard every spring.....
    [​IMG]

    ...I'm sure they are what's left over from a previous owners flower bed...
    [​IMG]

    I just let 'em grow til the grass over takes 'em....
    [​IMG]

    ...this is the 12th spring they've come back now. :D
    [​IMG]

    purple is always the first to bloom in my yard...
    [​IMG]

    white dogwoods and azaleas should be next.......they're getting close now..
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    The Peaches were in full bloom just down the street...last weekend already! :norton

    Spring is trying to "sprung" in western Kentucky but today does not look good for riding. Cold, rain, wind, yuck. So I thought I would catch up on what others are posting about.

    Here are a few of my flower images:

    Couple of tulips in the back yard

    [​IMG]


    Another tulip. The black background is actually a burned out stump (along with some Photoshop work)

    [​IMG]


    Wild violet (I think). They're all over the back yard.

    [​IMG]


    This is from last year. The dogwoods haven't bloomed yet, but hopefully those that survived the ice storm will bloom soon.

    [​IMG]


    I'll have to try and get some bikes and flowers pics.

    these little guys were fairly common in the low areas where we were skiing this past weekend. Sorry for the bad shot-time was an issue

    The very first azaleas blooms of '09 just had to be a boring white one at my house.....
    [​IMG]

    ...the "other" colors are starting to bloom too though. :D

    ...this one is kinda ragged...hungry bugs?

    they're nothing more than just another "weed" in my yard, really
    [​IMG]

    The dogwoods are inching closer to full bloom....maybe this weekend.

    catholic Lane Key West, a city where off street parking is rare and precious, and if it is found under a bush so much the better.
