    this is my favorite slideshow so far. just love this. the music is beautiful. who is that? i was wondering if it was J.Lo coz she’s recently done a spanish album, but wasn’t sure. it’s really perfect for this slideshow… just brings a calmness and a peacefulness to it.

    your fish are really nice. and that black bird that is sitting on the fence and on a tree branch… my FIL has one of these and they also talk…. a lot matter of fact. they have some of the most interesting of calls.

    your dogs… i really like them. did you get them here? i really adore german shephards. what is the other one?

    and the pics of the momma feeding filbert… they’re priceless. it actually brought a tear to my eye…. but i think maybe i’m still a bit hormonal! :wassat:

    Ah, the music, the music is by Natasha St-Pier, the French Canadian singer.

    Both dogs are Alsatians: Gnasher is a pedigree German Sheppard bought from a breeder in Bahrain, Phoebe is another kind of the same species but is a pound rescue story.

    Thanks umm Naief, that guy has taken over our household!

    Mhammod what are those white flowers with the yellow centers? They are very pretty.

    Those would be the beautifully scented Frangipani flowers.

    Early evening the scent of the garden belongs to them, a more welcoming smell you could not find.

    Darn, I watched this three times; love the flowers and wish I knew more about them. I’m on the road today, but I’d love to know all the flowers names so I could check them out. They are so different. BTW, Filbert is adorable, but what a star he’d be with some cool shades.

    Thanks for the Friday show, again.

    i was wondering if Phoebe was part german shephard… i thought maybe she was. they are both beautiful.

    w/ respect to the song… so she was singing french? i thought it was french in the beginning but then it sounded spanish close to the end… either way, it’s just so very lovely.

    Great slideshow, Mahmood.

    Just as your Frangipani scents the garden, so does my pink jasmine when it’s in full bloom. I’ve got another plant which is not even closely related (closer to palms), that has flowers scented with the same scent. It’s quite strange to me, but I suppose botanists wouldn’t find it too odd.
