Imprint of Leaf in Concrete Google Reverse image

Recently I tried out google's reverse image search tool for the first time to find out details about some plant based on the pictures of flower in bloom.

I couldn't find the answer quickly enough. But I thought it was a cool tool.
Then I decided to search an old picture from flickr on a whim and lo-and-behold, I stumble upon it being used in an Irish architectural blog. Isn't that cool?

When I discovered it, there was no attribution, but after I sent an email, they responded promptly and cited my flickr :). I had posted it on flickr many years ago with a  Attribution-Noncommercial-ShareAlike license.

Here is a snapshot of both on same screen.

Happy Valley 10km or 6.3 mile

Here is a scenic walk/run/trot route from near Graham's exxon on Allen Street covering some places like Walnut Spring's park, Milbrook Marsh, Region near Slab Cabin's run etc.

Great for exercising and exploring nature in Spring, summer and early fall.

if you use a bicycle... then remember that not all routes listed may have bicycle path provisions, some route involve use of a trail bike or even lifting your bike across obstacles/steps etc.

Here is a short url if you want to copy this map:

Have fun!

The bicycle route version that is close by this one is

Another "Historic" Storm

The sensationalist media stories never end. Granted one or two of these might really be big storms, but they do overdo this discussion and 24/7 coverage.

Anyhow, it is always good to be prepared:

Ok so this one was in Oregon (not Northeast), but the only reason I added this was because a place named Happy Valley, OR has been referenced in there!!
