Winter Walk


My family and I took a sunny walk on a crisp, cold day at the University of Kentucky Arboretum. A bright blue cloudless sky, good company and picturesque scenery made up for the chill. It was a sight filled with horizontal lines, stately trees, enticing paths, and vertical shadows. Enjoy.

  1. I agree with both Ann and winsome – beautiful trees and the essence of a wonderful winter day – no snow yet, but you can feel and smell it’s coming. You are quite the photographer, HG.

    On another note, your new look is certainly RED! lol

    • Thanks Sandra for your kind words.

      I’m wondering if the red is TOO red? I wanted it to look festively Christmas-like, but I may have to experiment on toning it down a bit.

      • Well, I wouldn’t want you to have to use your shades to read my blog Sandra. I just switched it to a more toned down red. Of course, now it’s bordering on pink, which I don’t really want, so I may have to play with it a few more times to get it right.

      • Yeah, a sort of scarletty pink. Here’s a suggestion – why not make the link color green instead of blue and go back to your original color. It looked better than this does for a Christmas theme. I’m just gonna keep my big mouth shut and enjoy the 12 days of Christmas blogs 🙂

      • I’m going to try this red theme option for a while and see if I like it. I’m not sure I like this one though, because there’s still a lot of pink. I guess I’ll go back to the other one if I don’t like this one, but I don’t know how to change the link color to green. Maybe you can talk me through it.

      • I don’t know how to do it with WordPress. I thought you might know, since you seem to be so computer savvy. I use Dreamweaver when making sites from scratch, and it just has the tool to change link color. However, as I posted elsewhere, I like this theme very much, since the main links are now white. The small text date and time are blue, but you hardly notice them.

      • Wow, I’m glad you think I’m computer savy Sandra. I like to think that I am, until I talk to someone 20 years younger than me, and suddenly realize there’s a lot I still don’t know. I’ll have to poke around in the menus some day and see if I can figure it out, or ask one of the WP “happiness engineers.”

    • Too bad you weren’t still there – I could have visited you. We liked the Arboretum. We also walked a trail that used to be part of an old farm, but alas, I didn’t bring the camera.

    • Thanks Lisa. I’m missing the cycling too – I’m trying to make up for it with spin class, but just not quite the same.

      BTW, the slide shows are easy. Click on “insert photo” – the camera icon, load the photos from your computer. Now your photos are in a gallery. Click “show” to add captions, tags, etc. Once you have the photos the way you want, at the bottom of the gallery is an option to insert slideshow. It will insert where you left the cursor in your post. Probably WP help can talk you through it better than I did here, but that is the gist of it.

  2. Good post… Just killing some time rubbaging around and found your page. Great looking blog. I’ll have to add the page to come back and see what’s new. Cheers

Don't leave yet. Tell me what's on your mind.
