Edited to add the Weekend Reflections picture - Allhorsestuff, you were right, the shot did not get posted. I'm pretty sure the problem was between the monitor and the chair : ) Thanks for telling me!!
Sorry, got busy and didn't post Friday, so now there are lots! To participate in any of these great memes, or just to go look at some out of this world terrific photos, just click on the appropriate buttons to the right.
A lovely early evening view from the patio at our Aunt Doris and Uncle Mike's house.
I LOVE gazanias, just love them. I had two and lost them in the cold spell, but one had re-seeded itself and it came up with spring. I decided to get lots of gazanias and plant them all in one place as a startling burst of color, a happy spot, and because if it gets cold again I can cover them all up. Gazanias go to bed at night. Here are some shots of the re-seeded gazania, sleeping and awake, and a shot of the TEN gazanias I bought yesterday, all still sleeping this morning. Hey, they're only 97 cents! : ) When they're open, their colors are brilliant. They also had a purplish pinkinsh maroonish color, but that wasn't what I was looking for.
Just look at that sunbeam to the left, isn't that gorgeous? The funny thing behind the flower is one of those landscape stones, scalloped, that you put in a ring around your trees. I got it years ago and the kids and I painted it. It's a scene with a mountain and a rainbow and it says Peace and has the kids' names on it.
This kind of critter you DON'T want in your garden, and they're hard to locate when the pot is full of lush bushy plants. Well, it's not anymore, thanks to these guys. Oh well, the food chain, we all have to live in it.
Sure hope they enjoyed the tomatoes. You know, the warm weather and all the beautiful plants in Florida are wonderful, but a decent food garden is quite a challenge - and I miss lilacs : )
SIX WORD SATURDAY:
Busy week; maybe I'll relax today!
SHADOW SHOT SUNDAY:
All kinds of pretty shadows amongst the leaves in the pomegranate
Funny, when I categorized this photo, I didn't even put it in the Weekend Reflections file because I didn't even notice all the reflections. Pretty silly of me since they're all over the truck, and the cars, and I had the camera on such a close-up setting that I even got that one driver's face in his mirror! Funny too, the next shot I got was while I was driving by the statue and I didn't even look, just shot and it wound up being a shot up the nurses's skirt, but, no reflections, so you don't get to see it : )
Have a wonderful weekend and peace to you all. B : )
