Back to blogging more, perhaps

Some of you may have noticed that I haven't been blogging much lately.

Some of you haven't noticed.

And then there is the vast majority of the blogosphere, who aren't aware that Sun and Shield exists . . .

Anyway, I've been working on our Flickr photos. I've been attempting to add family names to all the photos of flowering plants, and identify all the other organisms in the photos as well as possible. There were over 900 photos to check (not all of organisms to identify, though) and it took some time. Anyway, I've been impressed yet again with the diversity of God's creation. We must have one or more photos of at least 40 of the families of flowering plants.

As Psalm 104 puts it:
O Lord, how manifold are your works!
In wisdom have you made them all;
the earth is full of your creatures. (ESV)

I've also been impressed with the Wikipedia as a way of finding out such information.

I've been reminded of how little I know about identifying mosses, ferns, and lichens. I'm going to work on that, God (and some good books) helping me.

Thanks for reading.

I found this blog randomly :P
Its been forever since I spent time identifying and appreciating plants, but its the most fun thing I've ever studied.
You reminded me how much I enjoyed it. XDD

Hi, Martin.
Spring is finally here!
I took my asparagus fern, miniature potted yellow rose, and jasmine out on the deck the past few days. I don't usually take houseplants out, but they seem starved for light, after that long winter.

The tulips, sedum, phlox, and columbine leaves are up, along with a few malva sylvestris and a delphinium. The creeping phlox is starting to turn green.

Good to hear from you.

Thanks, ladies.

The plants are still there, PrincessHeart.
