    I don’t know how you did this, but I love it!
    You’ve got some very interesting and unique plants and flowers there!

    Lifecruiser: Thanks Deb :-) It’s a pity that it don’t work properly in IE though, showing the enlarged picture with transparency. I’ll have to try to find a solution for that sometime….


    Lifecruiser: This is our shots from this Monday in the Greenhouse named after Edvard Andersson, in the Bergianska Trädgården (Garden) in Stockholm.

    Sorry, but the script for showing the pics in large don’t function properly in Intern Explorer, use Firefox instead :-)


    Great pictures. The last one should have pants on it though,ha,ha..

    Lifecruiser: Ha ha ha, great, I just KNOW you would write that H&B2 :-)


    Wow great collection of flowers in this set.
    That one you thought was a poppy.
    My Son and his girlfriend Amber have that in their home.
    We know it by Paper Flower.

    Lifecruiser: Thanks Lynn, both for the kind words AND the enlightening to what it was!

    It seems to be working, they are very pretty and unusual plants. I think the large leaf one with the peep hole, my mom had is and Elephant ear Hosta. We had in front of our house. My brother and I used to play Hide-n-seek behind them, and tried to hide our feet. Very interesting shots. Happy Sunday!

    Lifecruiser: It’s just that the text in the sidebar is shown in the middle of the pics in IE? OK, elephant ear Hosta sounds like it could be true. Huge ones, yes :-)

    Wow, what a lot of plants. I especially like the Zamia and the flycatching plant. The shot you took of the zamia is quite unique. Happy Sunday Mrs Lifecruiser and thanks for the visit.

    Lifecruiser: That’s my favorites too :-)

    These are beautiful pictures. I think I have a serial plant killer thumb. I love my plants to death. :twisted:

    Lifecruiser: Well, I guess that’s very possible. I know several ones like you in that case. Or is it just bad luck? hm…

    These are wonderful photos for making the eye focus on just that plant/flower rather than the whole scene. The details of a plant are what we so often overlook.

    PS: Please can you email me instructions on how to get the GTS logo? Thanks so much for the easy-to-follow instuctions for the Blogroll.

    Lifecruiser: Thanks Alice :-) I liked your pic too! The email is on the way.

    Hi,”WOW” what a good collection,I and granma use to grow E.ferox.They can reach a height of 1.8m.Both the male and female cones are a spectacular orange red colour,but occasionally the cone can be yellow.Thanks for sharing.
    Wish you well

    Lifecruiser: Thank you zingtrial :-) For the interesting info about the plant too. We don’t have them over here other than in this special greenhouse.

    hmmm…. I can see a “red line” here!! I’m not suprised at all!! So..what’s the subject on this photocollage?

    Lifecruiser: That’s outSTANDING, you underSTAND….

    Debbie UNITED STATES said:

    Wow these are some really stunning shots. I love the colors and shapes. Plants are just so pretty how can one not be fascinated by them! The one that is not a b&w shot is my favorite! Just so unigue!

    How are you doing the thumbnail shots? Is it a plugin? Looks very interesting!

    We went out and about today. I posted a shot on my regular blog of what we found! I think you will like it! :)

    Lifecruiser: I’m so glad you liked them! Yes, the nature truly is variated, I never get tired of seeing all the difference.

    The thumbs are made by a script, I’ll email you the details. I remember now when you’re mentioning it though that there shall be some plugin somewhere, so I might check up that one first, maybe that one is better!

    I’ll pop over to see have a look, you made me curious :-)

    Miss Ass.Lifecruiser SWEDEN said:

    I know.. sex and the city… in the city :))

    Lifecruiser: Both will work :-)

    Miss Ass.Lifecruiser SWEDEN said:

    hmmm… I’ll better get my ass out of here then!! Next stop…THE CITY!!!

    Lifecruiser: He…he…he, I knew that should get you interested…. Mind though, WE live just in the outburst of the city…. Hm…. If you come here again, how will it be for us? No sex in the city ;-(

    Chana CANADA said:

    beautiful, beautiful pics..

    Lifecruiser: Thank you Chana :-)

    Miss Ass.Lifecruiser SWEDEN said:

    I’m getting confused here!! We’re talking about sex IN the city!! Not in the bush!! I really think Mr lifecruiser could use a break….*lol*… Sounds like you don’t want me to come :(.. NP.. I will find someone else in the city *lmao*

    Lifecruiser: Bush? We don’t have any bush here ;-) Hm. Mr L? Break? No way! He is a eternity machine! So, what you’re saying is that we have to go out in the big city to find you sex…..? This really starts to sound like very dirty work…. *ROFLMAO*

    Norma UNITED STATES said:

    I have a brown thumb (actually 2), so I won’t join. But I’ll look and not touch!

    I’ll check back for your MM–mine’s up–a 3 parter. Read all 3 parts to get the whole story.

    Lifecruiser: One can always look and not touch as you said :-) I’ll pop over for your MM post!


    Beautiful pictures. When I mouse over the pics they become larger and I’m using ie and see it fine.

    Lifecruiser: Thanks :-) Yes, but do you also get the text of the sidebar in the middle of tha picture? I do in IE and it’s not supposed to be there…

    Tricia CANADA said:

    That’s just beautiful Mrs. Lifecruiser. :) a nice combo of flowers, grasses and green leaves there. I love the script that you used too … may I ask what one it is?

    Saw Alice’s comment … she’s on Green thumb now …

    Lifecruiser: Thanks Tricia. Yes, I saw that Alice is in the blogroll and that’s really nice that some of my work gave fruit :-) The script is one from the net, I’ll email you the details. I’m not sure if there can be some plugin doing the same though, haven’t had the time to go looking for it yet….

    Tricia CANADA said:

    I forgot to mention that we have a late addition to the Green Thumb Sunday group - Janets Garden. I thought I’d let you know so that you could visit her and give her a welcome to the group if you have time.

    Lifecruiser: Ah, yes, I wondered if she would remember to join this time, good - I’ll pop over :-)


    Each shot by itself is terrific, together they are even more terrific. Great stuff!

    Lifecruiser: Thank you John, I’m glad you enjoyed them :-)
