photos: Miramar sledding hill, Duxbury Massachusetts - 01/03/14 04:00 AM
We've had a bit of a snowstorm here, in case you haven't heard. Some people are saying that, as a storm, it's a bit disappointing even: not really a snow "event"!  The sun has poked through here. taking the edge off of the cold. Driveways are getting plowed out, and the snow has stopped.
So the kids need to get out of the house! It's a school snow day. Mid-year exam schedules will be scrapped, but that's a worry for tomorrow. Today, it's time to go sledding!
Miramar is a religious retreat at the foot of Bay Road. The hill is … (13 comments)

Orchid
I used to grow orchids like this. I didn't grow this orchid or take this picture, but I wanted to share my friends' skills in those two areas with you all.
Orchids grow landing pads on which bees and other pollinators are encouraged to alight. As they pull back, after injesting the sweet, sticky pollen at the end of the runway (here, the pollen is yellow and red), the pointed hook hanging from above the opening breaks off and sticks in the pollinator's back. This is what is carried to another flower to pollinate it, and perpetuate the species.

My reasons for Christmas

I'm so blessed to be able to see all of my immediate family and quite a few other people I love and care about during this last week of the year. For me, the reason for the season is these two kids, my son and my brother's daughter. We'll all be together in my car when we leave my mom's in D.C. and drive to my dad's in NYC later this week.
Thank you all for making this first year on Active Rain a good one for me, both professionally and personally. Quite a few of … (15 comments)

Eilean Donan Castle
Ancestral home of the MacKenzie clan
Scotland

Eilean Donan, the clan castle of the MacKenzies, sits at the meeting point of Loch Long, Loch Duich and Loch Alsh. It's origin is shrouded in the mists of time (okay, about 600 C.E.). 
The first fortified stronghold was established in the reign of Alexander II (1214-1250). In 1263 Alexander III gave the castle to Colin Fitzgerald, son of the Earl of Desmond and Kildare (later to become MacKenzies) as a reward for services in the Battle of Largs. The famous battle culminated in the defeat of the Norwegian King, Haco. Following … (4 comments)

Why I Love Massachusetts in Autumn
Here are the rest of the pictures that I would have entered in my contest blog if I hadn't been constrained to one picture.
All of these photos were taken within a few miles of each other.

I'm not sure how to describe what is so special about this beauty. The picture says more than a thousand words ever could. If you've never experienced Fall Colors in New England, or the crisp weather that begins to flow through here in early October, you haven't really lived. At a minimum, you owe yourself a bucket-list … (3 comments)

Before the autumn sets in, and I put the focus machine in forward gear for the next few months, here are two more from Maine and the summer memory department.
Julia June is my niece, my brother Doug's incredible 4-year old spitfire daughter.
