In recent years there has been a huge increase in the number of condominiums popping up all over Madison, particularly 'high end' ones. I don't know anyone who lives in any of them as they all seem to be prohibitively expensive (and I don't think too many of them are at 100% occupancy either), but I particularly like the balconies on this one. It's right on the lakefront too, so imagine the view you get for all those dollars...

it's alive!!

A chenille tree - also known as a snake tree - in full glory at Olbrich Botanical Gardens.

I hope to start posting again regularly...I've fallen out of my daily posting for one reason and another - and now family obligations and an upcoming vacation mean I might be on and off for the next couple of weeks again...Thanks to Neva for your supportive e-mail this morning & to my sister-in-law who was getting worried that I hadn't posted a photo in a while :)

experiencing technical difficulties

I must apologise for my posting being so spotty & sporadic lately - along with a long weekend away with friends I'm also having trouble with my camera, i.e. it won't open. So, until I get it into the camera repair shop I'm out of action. Back as soon as possible.

(British visitors over 30 to this site most probably remember this picture - it's the old test card the BBC would put up when programmes were off the air.)
