   All is as good as new with my photo site. It is hard enough to carve out a little time to post an entry this time of year, when some technical problem prevents you from being able to do that it's soooooo annoying! I do want to mention that I've used Homestead Photo Site for about a year now and I am very happy with it. This is only the second time in a year that I have had any kind of problem at all.

     I know that some of you are exploring alternate sites because of the frequent problems you have with AOL's FTP space and I would highly recommend this one. Another site that a lot of people are using is Photobucket and I've only heard good things about them too, as a matter of fact I am considering using them as a back up for those rare occasion when Photo Site is acting up.


    It's hurricane season again "ALL READY"! It has been raining a lot here ... a whole lot ... like all day every day, a lot. I guess it has been a little inconvenient but they say that the more it rains, the less severe the hurricane season should be. After last years fiasco I say "let it rain baby ... let it rain."

     We are used to having afternoon thunderstorms roll out of the everglades at around 3:00, this time of year. This is what keeps things so green and beautiful here. If not for all of the rain I suppose Florida would just be another sandy desert.  


     Oh ... the plants are happy ... yep, especially the rain lilies (top photo) and the dove orchids (no photo today), both bloom like crazy when it rains a lot. These are today's photos of some of the happy and colorful plants in the back yard, the herbs (below) are especially happy today.

Amazing photos - I love them all (as usual!!)  I've just started the digital photo thing, and I've been using only AOL FTP space.  I'm gonna check out the others now.  

Thanks for sharing!!

there is a good side to the rain.
we always feel like we should be out and about while the sun shines,the rain gives us a chance to kick back. I love the afternoon showers.
I didn't know that the more rain,the less chance of hurricans. Come on ,rain!

Glad you are back up and running with pics... I've never had any trouble with AOL's FTP, so since it is free, I continue to use it <LOL>. As always, I LOVE your flower/herb/plant photos! You do such a good job taking them, then artistically cropping and framing them!

Whoo Hoo...thanks for the information.  I've been having a lot of trouble with the FTP space.  I thought it was something I was doing wrong.  I'm going to check out photobucket too.  Great photos.  :)
