SkyWatch Friday, Fertilizer Friday, Color Carnival, Camera Critters, Six Word Saturday, Shadow Shot Sunday, Weekend Reflections

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 : )


Busy week; maybe I'll relax today!

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 : )

I would be honored if you would visit my new on-line store and see some of the cards I have been making. Feel free to purchase some if you would like : )

Beautiful colorful sky which would have worked for Color Carnival too. =) The flower was beautiful too but, I must admit, I'm stuck on the sky.

All of the images are fantastic. The sky photo is gorgeous, the flowers are beautiful, but the Camera-Critter is ucky.

The sky looks like it was painted by a great artist....I guess it was!

All great shots again - sky watch is amazing you really know how to catch them - your prtty flowers came out so great and I love the story about the stone, the paint and their names how sweet.

That's an amazing cloud formation. Or is that smoke in the sky?
