    Being a Snowqueen myself I loved this snowy view.


    Great pictures Madhuri, I like your traditional henna (Mehndi) decoration. We usually do this on Eid and wedding celebrations.

    Thanks, Queen. We too do it for all festivals and weddings. There is a Mehandi and sangeet night prior to the wedding day and all women get this done.

    How long does it take to get a pattern like that?

    Making the design doesn't take long, maybe 10-15 mins for a hand, but if it is the bridal mehandi then it may take a few hrs as those are very detailed designs and done on full hands and feet/legs. Also, getting the desired colour after you wash the mehandi depends on how long have you kept the mehandi. Some people keep it overnight, some wash it off after a couple of hours, and some apply clove oil before applying mehandi, some even apply lemon and sugar mix so that the mehandi doesn't fall off after drying. There are various techniques to get the desired colour. It is said that, for a bride-to-be the darker the mehandi colour the more the love of her husband and in some parts it is the love of the mom-in-law.

    I did it on Eid, and it almost took five minutes though the design is not as detailed as it is on your hand, Madhuri.

    Queen, such designs are called Arabic designs here.

    Looks like you're trees are offering some nice colors.
    There's a couple of Ash trees in my yard that are displaying some nice color.

    Tony and Kittypaws your photos are truly amazing. Thanks for sharing!

    I took this picture early this year during my visit to a nearby town. When I asked his name he replied ‘I’m puperman’ he actually wanted to say Superman. Cute kid!

    Some burnt food which I actually managed to eat (thanks to some quince preserve) and snow.
    I sang of leaves, of leaves of gold, and leaves of gold there grew.

    He is cute owing to his bad hair day.

    Right now (Sunday morning) it is a balmy 60 deg F, although there is a strong cold front on the way tonight.
