This is the first of a series of photos I plan to post from my Grand Tour of Germany (with side trip into France) that I took in May of 2017. I will not be posting them in any particular order.
I keep a bucket of sand on my balcony that I use for mixing with the soil when I’m potting cacti. I opened it a few days ago after not having touched it for a couple of years and saw that a seed had sprouted in the sand and produced a healthy looking little fern. It’s a bit late in the season to re-pot it, so I think I will leave it and see if it survives the winter and then do something about it in the spring.
I don’t know how long this spurt of activity will last, but I have a lot of photos stored up, plus my old Blogger photoblog was decimated by Photobucket starting charging for mirroring photos and I might therefore repost some of the still relevant old posts from there on this blog. I decided not to start paying for having my content mirrored because I don’t make an income from my blogs and they aren’t popular enough to warrant paying for hosting either the blog content or the photos.
I am also going to change direction a bit. Instead of posting mostly photos of Iceland and from my travels abroad, I will start posting more general photos, because I like to photograph things I find interesting, either visually or as ideas.
I have also decided to stop mirroring my Instagram photos, because I want to use a dedicated photoblog template and none of those I have tested show Instagram photos on the start page. You have to open the actual post to see them and most people are too lazy to do that.
