what a cheery picture!!!! and i love the way you framed it!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Elaine. Time is suddenly so relative, isn't it! smile
i guess the you and i are very young Ginnie....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Peter. It's all relative, isn't it! smile
So we are young then Ginnie...Superb capture!
Ginnie Hart: Oh yes, Richard. Probably more than we realize. smile
Absolutely!!! Beautiful photo - and I like how the five is sort of falling over... smile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Elizabeth. I always stare at old numbers like this, just to figure them out. When I do, I'm always amazed by how old they are.

1651... even that year is OLD to me. The fact that the stone survived many wars and rough times in general.
We are young of heart that is all that counts (sometimes a little annoying when the body is not catching up too wink)
Great picture and I love the 'stokroos'.
Ginnie Hart: 1651 is older than you can possibly imagine to us Americans, MLMA. It still blows my mind. I don't think it'll ever really sink in in my lifetime. Seriously. In the meantime, I'll try to "catch up." HA! Bedankt.

If only we could keep going as long as this, Ginnie! But if we still feel young in retirement, what more should we ask?
Ginnie Hart: I have often said I don't really want to live longer than my 80s, Lisl, but then, the closer I get, the younger I really do feel (except for my body). Let's just keep on being active, like we are, and hope for the best. HA!

Cornelius Vermuyden constructed the first Denver Sluice, an important component in drainage of The Fens. This happened in 1651, the age of that brick Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: WOW, Chris, how in the world did you pull that one out of the hat! Sounds like a very Dutch name!!! And a very good year!
I like very much your processing which gives of the color to these beautiful stones decorated with attractive hollyhocks
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Marie. Especially at this time of the year, it really caught my eye!
After shifting loads of books around this weekend my back feels as if it has been around since 1651 grin
Ginnie Hart: You poor thing, Bill. I have days like that, too, so I can sympathize. Hopefully the hollyhocks will brighten up your day a bit.

Some things are born survivors ;o)
Ginnie Hart: I believe you are right, Mike!
No way, these hollyhocks are not 363 years old, right. wink He he...
Ginnie Hart: I'll never tell, LC. smile
I feel 165 (your number) until I have my coffee.
Ginnie Hart: Actually, Mary, the number is 1651 (ha). I hope you don't ever feel that old, before or after coffee! grin
A beautiful shot of history, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I'm still blown away by it, Pauline!
quite right, Ginnie. lovely shot to go with your inspiring message.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Ayush. Sometimes the simplest of things speak to us! smile

1651... already Winchester Cathedral was near 600 years old at that time. I learnt from Mr Trim when I visited him in the Far East (of England wink ) that these delightful flowers are hollyhocks.
Ginnie Hart: Even 1651 blows me away, Alan, as you'd guess, but 600 years older than that is enough to make me die and go to heaven. smile And yes, they ARE hollyhocks.
What a great find, definitely older than old as you say for those of American descent like yourself.
Ginnie Hart: We would say it's older than dirt, Brian, which is surely true! smile

This one is a bit before my best times. You did make a great picture of it.
Ginnie Hart: HA! A bit before your best times, Louis?? I love the thought. smile

the number 5 seems to have tripped up Ginnie and is about to fall on its face.
Ginnie Hart: Elizabeth noticed that as well, Chad. Hmmmm. It makes you wonder what the stone carver was doing that day?! smile

What for a wonderful scene your acute eyes have discovered again! I like the treatment - and to be young by heart is a fine thing, but getting older has also some advantages I don't want to miss.
Ginnie Hart: Of anyone your age I have ever known, Philine, I don't think you'll miss a thing! And I plan to follow suit. smile
Yeah, some days I feel 165 smile
Ginnie Hart: But do you ever feel 1651, Michael???? grin

Ginnie Hart: You amaze me, Robin. THANK YOU.
