greendougherty.Blog – Friday Roundup – December 1, 2017

Starting off the last month of the year on December 1st and trying to really get used to this but babysitting came to the forefront for three days this week doing the greendougherty.blog and a lot of time spent putting out an updated Out West Medical Employers took over most of my time.

So, with that purpose in mind, here goes with this weeks Friday Roundup.

NOTE: Also, I’m still working on doing an intro for the assorted groups on Facebook under my Admin and putting a new intro for each group and the respective videos that I have related to that facebook group. Like I said, use the comment section to engage other visitors who leave comments on the videos and not only the facebook postings.

We’re getting close to getting a weekly rhythm on these blogs and the weekly roundup on Friday. I got thousands of pictures and tunes to share and hopefully I can find a way to fund the day to day operations. Having side dinero would give me peace of mind.

How to Use Movie Maker to Make a Movie for YouTube – October 6, 2017

I’m in the process of adding Cards and End Cards to some of the videos that I have on YouTube. It’s a long, tedious job but the end game is to see if I can increase viewership to my garden videos. If I can crack the system, I’ll play around with the Yorkville pictures that I can convert to video and see if I can duplicate the effort in that group of pictures and share with everyone.

 

Before I get to that section of the YouTube and working with Cards and End Cards, I’ll introduce the process of trying to make a movie via Movie Maker and all the fun I was having trying to understand (WTF) what was going on while in Movie Maker.
First, I open up Movie Maker and click on Add Pictures
01 Add Pictures
Note: I use a program called Snag It that enables me to take a picture of the page, or, portion of the page that I am working on at the moment.
I’m working on the next issue of my garden blog and will be using this Movie Maker to issue my Dougherty Garden Blog. I’ll be using 19 pictures from my garden taken on October 5, 2017.
02 All Pictures Added
This is how the Movie Maker looks like with the pictures added. Notice that the pink area below the picture shows a description “DCIM\100SPORT” which I believe is the description on each picture assigned by my camera that I am using. I’ll show you how to change that description.
03 Sample Picture
This is the first picture and I have to use another tool in order to catch a few steps that are not available to use with Snag It. This is where my camera comes out to capture what I can’t grab a picture of with Snag It.
04 Click on Properties in Dialog Box
Right-click on the mouse and go down to the Properties and click on Properties.
05 Change Description to Picture
Forgive the clarity of this picture but I’ll try to get a better picture before I finish this blog. For now, the Title is: DCIM\100SPORT. It is here where you can change the description to the picture to the one that you want to show up in Movie Maker as the name of the picture.
06 Description Changes
As you can see in the above picture, the Title of the picture is now correct. The only trouble is that this feature must be changed before you Add the pictures to Movie Maker. One of the things that I do now is to make sure that the Title of the picture is correct in the Title section of the Properties. I was tending to have problems with my Movie Maker when I had to add the name to the picture in Movie Maker.
This was one of the problems that I was having and it was a headache for me. Now, when I do a project that involves pictures, I make sure that the Title is complete and accurate for all the pictures before I add them to Movie Maker.
07 Title of all Pictures Changed
As you can see, all of the Titles of these pictures are now complete and in Movie Maker. Now, I can continue with the next step in the process of how I make a movie of my pictures in the garden.
This will be a simple video of how to make a simple video. I’ll do the basics of getting a Title and the Credit for a video to keep it simple.
08 Click on Title
Using the Home Index, click on Title and a Blank Black Box will appear on your Movie Maker for you to use to enter the Title of your movie. Click on the Black Box and “My Movie Title” will appear and you can change that to the name of the movie you are working on.
09 Title of the Movie
I made the change to “Today in the Dougherty Garden” as the title of my movie in Movie Maker. I normally use a date with my blog but for simplicity’s sake, I’ll just do the Title for now.
10 Credits for Movie
This section is for adding Credits to the end of the video.
DCIM100SPORT
Drop Down Menu for End of Video Use
Sorry about the blurriness of the picture but I’m using a hand camera to take these pictures of the screen. Snag It doesn’t capture the picture. When I click on Credits, I get the Drop Down Menu. Then, when I click on Snag It, the Drop Down menu disappears. So, I have to use the camera to catch the Drop Down Menu.. I’ll try a Copy and Paste on another screen later to see if that will work.
12 Credit Screen

13 Director Screen
Directed By Screen
14 Starring Screen

15 Filmed Screen
Filmed on Location Screen
16 Soundtrack Screen

The above pictures, End Screen pictures, can be altered in any manner to let you tell your viewers anything about the video and who produced it and add further information that you would like the viewer to see. You can not add any live links at this point in these Credits. That can be accomplished, to a degree using, Cards and End Screen Annotations.
The Cards and End Screen Annotations are primarily YouTube tools that lets you promote other Channels and Videos, your Playlist or Videos on the Playlist.
The first of the end of your video starts with the Credits Screen. Everything that you see on the screen can be changed or adjusted…fonts, size of fonts and what you want to do as Credits…you can even change Credits to another word. It’s all up to you and what you want to say on each one of these screens.
Again, for simplicity’s sake, I’ll go through the Credits that I use on this video for my purpose. You can get creative on your end and do whatever you want to and change or add as many Credits as you want.  All you have to do is change the name of the page and what the Credits are for.
Link for the Finished Video on the Dougherty Garden
For now, this is as simple as it gets for making a movie out of still pictures. If you are making a movie from a movie, which I have not done so far, this is all about making a movie from pictures. My purpose here was to show how to do a movie with pictures.  I have to do videos in the near future and will tackle that in a future blog and video.
For now, I’ll convert this blog into a video and possibly add some additional comments in the video about this procedure.

Featured

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

One of the more popular plants in the Dougherty Garden is that of the Hawaiian Ti plant. The Hawaiian Ti plant has two versions in the Dougherty Garden. onw is the green leafed version and the other is the pink leafed version.

Scientific Name: Cordyline fruiticosa

Common Name: Hawaiian Ti

Over the years, I have produced a few videos on the Hawaiian Ti plant and here are the lniks to these videos.

COMING SOON: Recent video of the Hawaiian Ti plants growing in the Dougherty Garden, including young plants.

Pink Leafed version of the Hawaiian Ti plant. This is part of the Cordyline series of plants. Most of this series of plants have the tell tale trunk.

Green Leafed version of the Hawaiian Ti plant. You can see from this picture this is not a leggy plant.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The pink version of the Hawaiian Ti plant add a bit of color to the Dougherty Garden. What I love about this plant is that if somebody wants to grow one of these plants, all I have to do is make a cutting and dust the bottom with some rooting hormone and pot it up and in a few weeks we have a new Hawaiian Ti plant. You can even take this cutting and place the cutting in a glass of water and in a short operiod of time, roots develop.

At this point in  time I labeled the plant #742. Here are a few cuittings that I had taken from a Hawaiian Ti plant that had a leggy look.  I cut a section away asnd cut them into several section and potted them in this pot.

greendougherty.Blog – Today in the Dougherty Garden – September 3, 2017

Featured

The first in the Dougherty Garden from the new greendougherty.Blog featuring a post from Today in the Dougherty Garden. Since I’m working with a limited library, grab the pictures as I’ll delete older piuctures so that I don’t overload the library. Cutting costs on this end. Also, Today in the Dougherty Garden will combine all plants (palms, flowers, tropical plants, and then some…) into one blog and I’ll try and do a video of each blog. Enjoy.

My three unknown plants at the moment. So many plants change hands over time that one forgets to write down the name and we’re subjected to searching the internet for plant names. I’ll do a blogs on just these plants the next time because they are so unusual.

Today’s Plant in the Dougherty Garden on August 10, 2017 – Bird of Paradise

Featured

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is the Bird of Paradise in the Dougherty Garden as of August 11, 2017. It’s not a completely sunny area because the plant is surrounded by a Coconut and Solitaire palm trees but seems to be doing alright in this location. There are about ten Bird of Paradise plants in this cluster planting. I love when they sell these plants in garden centers to get the buyer’s attention because of the amount of plants in one pot. If you check the mature Bird of Paradise plant below, You’ll notice several Bird of Paradise plants in that large plant.

The Bird of Paradise plant is a plant that once it is comfortable, it will produce little pups from the base of the plant. The Bird of Paradise loves full sun and grows with out any problems. I did not have pest problems while this plant was in the Dougherty Garden. If you are careful, you can capture one of these little pups to give to a friend as long as you are able toget a section that has roots at the bottom.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

After taking a picture of the Bird of Paradise plant I took a picture of the most recent bloom om the plant. I’m anxious to do a disecction of this bloom when it dries out to see if the seeds are being produced.

This series of blogs will record for posterity some of the plants that were part of the Dougherty Garden over the years and some that are still are part of the Dougherty Garden. One of those plants is that of the Bird of Paradise. I originaly had a white Bird of Paradise and spent the beter part of a day removing it from the space that it as in in order to ret anothe rplant in the Dougherty garden. Last year I received a Bird of Paradise with a yellow flowers.

My beautiful picture

This is the Bird of Paradise with white flowers that was a part of the Dougherty Garden. The Bird of Paradise was still a very active plant in the Dougherty Garden in 2011 when this picture was taken. It was a few years later that I decided that I had to remove the Bird of Paradise because it was growing really tall with new shots coming out on the bottom.

553 Bird of Paradise with White Flowers on 090109

It took a bit of time to remove the Bird of Paradise because I had to use a fold a way hand saw with a nice serated cutting edge to cut into each plant that was about four inched in diameter. After I removed all the top growth, I had to use the saw to cut into the rot system to make sure thsat I had completely removed the Bird of Paradise. IT’s a beautiful plant but I do have second thoughts thinking about what it wil look like in a few years.

553 White Bird of Paradise Seeds on 101110

When I was taking the Bird of Paradise out of the ground I figured that it was an opportune time to capture as many seeds as possible before the plant was completely removed form the garden. Here are a few o the seeds that I was able to save at the time.

And the final view of my Bird of Paradise plant from the Dougherty Garden. If you have any questions about the Bird of Paradise, I’ll try and answer your question. I’ll be making an index of sorts for all the plants that will be listed in the Dougherty Garden Plant of the day.

Enjoy growing green every day,
