Before and After photos. I am learning photoshop and I did this using the clone tool.

It gets very tricky and can be very precise.


Daphne flowers

This morning I awoke to the wonderful smell of Daphne flowers next to my bed. These are very small tiny flowers usually on a large bush, and they are very fragrant. These flowers would make a wonderful perfume. An extra plus to have fragrant flowers in the winter too, of course this is California.

Trees on Trinity River

These are my favorite tree's at what we now call my "Mom's beach". It used to be the place where we camped when we first lived on the property and also where we had the "Leo Party". One of the pictures is of what used to be the stage, and the "Slide for Life".

Beavers Again

Those beavers have been busy again on the Trinity river. The trees are still standing but they are slowing eating them away. I noticed there are many trees downs across the river, and I saw what I think is their home.

Lowden Park Slide - old

This is the slide that I my brother and I used to play when we were children it was at Lowden Park in Weaverville. Most likely every person that I know in Weaverville has been on or knows someone that has been on this slide. It is classic!

My aunt and uncle got another piece of the playground. A horse swing. You can see why it could that could be a hazard, an all metal heavy horse swing!

Darn Beavers

Those darn beavers in the river have attacked around five or six trees. Here are the pics. One tree has fallen and soon more may. How dare they!

I believe this is their home on the left.
