I've been tagged by Lona at Hocking Hill's Garden
in a post called "Photo Tag".
Here are the rules:
Go to the 4th folder in your computer where you store your pictures.
Select the 4th picture in that folder.
Explain the picture.
Tag 4 people to do the same.

Although I tend to limit my blog to the subjects of gardening and the local eagles, their nest, and other birds, sometimes other topics creep in. One of those times was for my post about a visit to Fur Rondy in Alaska in March 2008. Yes, it seems that most folks in this area go south for sun during the dreariest of days of the winter, but we tend to go north. I know, kinda crazy, huh?

Anyhoo, the photo above is one of the scenes from the Alaska Airlines flight from Seattle to Anchorage. I thought the mountain closest to us looked similar to Mt Rainier and took plenty of pictures of it. The mountains in the distance had a most beautiful hue as sunset began, about noon. Just kidding, it was later than that. Probably about 3 p.m. :)

This picture is not the best photo of the mountain and scenery, but it's the4th photo in the 4th folder of downloads from my camera for that trip. The folder contains lots of shots of a great trip, with memories of outhouse races, running with the reindeer, and best of all, visiting with cousins.

Since some people do not go for the 'tagging' fad, so I leave it to the four I have have listed below as to whether they want to participate in the game. They are:

Sue at A Corner Garden
Karen at Greenwalks
Tessa at Blunders with shoots, blossoms 'n roots
Tui at Mental Mosaic

Au revoir, mes amies!


  1. Hi Aerie-el. That is an awesome photo! I don't usually participate in tags, as explained in my sidebar, but this is an easy one I may just do the picture part of, and invite anyone to do also.

    Thanks for thinking of me,

  2. I'm game- thanks for the...what's it called a tag? Very fun- see you on my blog ;)

  3. Hi Sue,
    Thanks for your kind note. And I'm so sorry 'bout the tag. I totally missed that, and there it is staring me in the face in it's own category. Doh-oh, it won't happen again!
    I really like your idea of an open invitation rather than a 'tag'.
    Thanks again for your kind comments.

    Hi Tessa,
    Hope you have fun with it. It'll be interesting to see your post.


  4. Hi Aerie-el - Hm, don't usually do these things but out of curiosity just looked up the photo and it's actually somewhat related to my blog! So, I might actually do this one. :) Not even sure how you go about this, I'll have to figure it out (duh). Thanks! - Karen

  5. Hi Karen,
    I totally understand.
    I don't really know about this tagging thing either! This is the first 'tag' for me and I'll probably do future ones differently. I like Sue's idea about doing a post and inviting anyone/others to participate without a specific 'tag'. Thanks Sue!
    Enjoy the sunny day! Hooray!

  6. That is an awesome photo.You have had some great opportunities to get some fantastic pictures.I love the clouds. Thank you for participating in the tag game. I know it is a bother and I am thinking of not doing anymore. I hate to oppose on others so thank you.

  7. Well, it was fun Aerie-el. I see that a lot of people don't care for the tag thing- I thought I'd try it first before deciding if I'm one of them ;). I probably won't do this type again unless the picture just happens to be a pic that is related to gardening. :) Thanks for thinking of me for this!

  8. Lona,
    No trouble. It was fun to try it once anyway. I thought the disclaimer was a good idea and that no one would feel pressured to do it. Live and learn.

    Agreed...I hadn't done this before either. We both learned, eh?


  9. Right- love learning! At least I had a nice change to post about my baby! He may never have had the chance to grace my blog without it- again, thanks for the invite!

  10. You can tag me anytime you want, Aerie-el! I think it's fun. :)

    I'll let you know when I follow through on it.




I love comments, and visiting blogs of people who leave them! Thanks for visiting!
