Enjoying the bright colors.....

This orchid is growing in one our trees and amazingly it survived the tree cutting so I had to get a picture of it.

This yellow rose has the most delicious smell and is so pretty......
 I had fun capturing it in different ways.

I was not expecting the flash to go off but it did and the result was rather cool with the black background.

Yellow roses are my favorite and my little rose bush continues to bloom and give me these beautiful flowers to enjoy.

Harvesting Peanuts

We saw this field full of workers and could not tell for sure from the highway what they were doing....
so we walked down to the field and found out they were harvesting peanuts.

They were very kind and let us sample some of their peanuts.

Tree Cutting

The trees in the yard of our rental home were getting very over grown and needed to be trimmed....and need I say more.....they are certainly trimmed now.

Things grow very quickly here so in a matter of a few months they will be bursting forth with lots of green again.....but for now the yard looks rather bare and we have lots of sunshine coming into the house.

 Just getting started.....notice their bamboo ladder and the bare feet.

Watching the action..... 

Oh my all I could say while taking this picture.

Lots and lots of branches on the ground.

He was certainly skilled in climbing and balancing in his bare feet......

while chopping away at the branches.

They filled this little pickup truck full three times with branches to haul away. They chopped and compressed it very tight.

A view of the finished cut from out my office room....I should have taken a before picture because it is hard to imagine now how big these trees were before..... when all I could see was lots of leaves from this window.

Another view from the ground.

Beautiful Flower Floats

These floats were covered with flowers of many different kinds...lots of hours went into designing each one.

I tried to include some closer pictures so you can see some of the detail. There was even carved fruit and vegetables on one float.

These were all really pretty with the colourful array of see a lot of the Thai culture in these floats.

Do you see the Tuk Tuk? was a cute float.

This was my favourite strange creatures on it just beautiful flowers.

Old city wall float and behind Larry is part of the actual old wall.

The floats are built around a vehicle.

Lots of elephants.....

These carved pieces were amazing.
