Ronf your garden is beautiful. What is the plant with the swirled leaves in the first picture?
Thank you lalogue, or can I just call you lal? ;-)
The swirled leaf plant is a Rex Begonia, variety, Escargot, appropriately enough.

This is "Lantermans Mill" located in Mill Creek Park, Youngstown, Ohio.
The mill was originally constructed in 1845 & 1846
In the mid 1980's the mill was fully restored and is now opertating as a public attaction in the Park.
As a side note, Mill Creek Park is the 2nd largest municipal park in the entire USA.

If you look in the backgorund of the Mill picture you can see the covered bridge which is slightly upstream from the bridge.

Shot of the interior of the mill at the Bagging and weighing station. In the far background of this picture you can see what looks like large round wooden tubs. The actual mill grinding wheels are inside those tubs. As the flour is ground it is carried up to bins on the upper floof where it then comes down the wooden chutes to the bagging station.
Thanks for the mill tour. Thats great.

The Heron pic is just great. The way it's balanced in mid-launch on the very tip of one toe. Perfect timing! You just don't catch 'em at that perfect point every day - or every month for that matter.
Thanks troutwind. There were numerous Herons fishing the Potomac that day and it increased my chances of getting a nice shot. It was an enjoyable outing. Alisande, lookin' hot back in the day.
