H2O – Water as Snowflakes
Autumn in Alberta. Like any other season here in the Foothills of the Rocky Mountains, the weather can be unpredictable. The first snowfall of the season can be early, or it can be late, but it is rarely welcome for adults. It often causes a delay in harvesting. It invariably results in highway accidents – road conditions deteriorate before winter driving skills kick in.
Our first snowfall was a few days ago. A foggy, snowy photo is not a cheery sight, so I made it more presentable by applying a ‘Colored Pencil’ filter.
H2O – Water as Ice
A few days later the sun returned and the garden was transformed into a wonderland coated with ice. You can see these photos at my Birds Blooms and Bugs blog – H2O – Encased in Ice.
H2O – Water as Water
You could also wander over to my Birds Blooms and Bugs blog and meet the incredibly cute Northern Cardinal that took a bath in my sprinkler: A Wet Northern Cardinal.
So why a new blog?
I could tell you it started, as these things do, with minor annoyances. Unaddressed, these became regular disagreements, then acrimonious arguments. When all parties were pettily pissed off, The Birds started tweeting their displeasure with being housed with Politicians. The Flowers unfriended all The Car Guys Vehicles. They all declared they were going to move out.
That is mere fantasy, of course. The simple answer is, I had enough material to create specialty blogs for the things that interest me the most. So I moved a bunch of posts to a new home.
As moves go, it has been quite straight forward, though time consuming. The exiting parties wanted to take all their belongings with them, including all the nice comments that have been made about them. WordPress provides an ‘Export’ tool for that. Unfortunately, the export is hit or miss in the media department, so it has taken a bit of time to move the missing photos.
The Birds, Flowers and Insects built their nests and beds at https://birdsbloomsbugs.com/.
Last but not least, The Quotations, fearful of forever being associated with the mundane topics of weather, pots and pans… and dreadful puns – moved to The Quippery.
Do you have more than one blog? If you were going to split your blog up, what interests would move to a new home?
All the water photos were my contribution to this week’s WordPress Photo Challenge which is H2O.
