It seems my blog’s homepage as been inaccessible for hours now. Who knows, maybe longer by time this post shows up. I have no idea what’s going on. I can reach other pages on my blog, just not my homepage. I expect many problems with my site over the next month or so as Blogger makes its change over to all of its “new improvements”. I’ve tried making the switch to Beta Blogger already, but it seems that my site is too big and I am unable to do so at this time. So, there you go. Visit when you can. Hopefully things will be up and running when you do. As long as I am able, I will continue to post something daily through all of this, and hopefully things will all shake out in the end when the changes are complete.

Today’s photos are a collection of colors that I saw one rainy morning while out running my laps. When I was done, I took four shots around the yard with this collage in mind.

I love the berries best, so pretty. I also really like the mushrooms a lot.

I noticed the same thing happened to another blogger last week. I could only get in through archived pages, which did include the current post. I haven't had that issue myself, but I have an FTP server so maybe that helps? I use a blogger hack template and I hope it doesn't get meesed up with all the "improvements" Blogger is making.

What a beautiful collection, Micki! All from your yard??!! You must live in a magical place. You can tell that this collection was thought out as each image is complimentary to the other but have to say that I like them on their individual merit as well.

Fabulous collection. Although scanned with a 'cheap' scanner, you managed to preserve those beautiful colors. Couldn't have done it better myself. Excellent!

PS: thank you for your comments on my photographs. You're the best!

I'm sorry to hear of your problems with Blogger. The post today gives us quite a glimpse around your yard. I especially like the delicate web even though it doesn't have quite the impact of the others. Altogether: excellent work.

Each of these four shots would have carried a posting in their own right, I think, so quadra-bravo on the collage! And you seeing the colors on the laps and returning to find images to fit a plan leaves me breathless just thinking about it. Impressed.

Micki! Those are some lovely shots from around the yard!!! Proving, once again, that you needn't go far to get great shots.

I tried to access your blog the other day and couldn't. Blogger can be quite frustrating sometimes.
