Mellow Yellow Monday

Happy Mellow Yellow Monday to you!  A brand new week - make it wonderful - for you AND someone else, if you can.

These pictures may be shocking if you suffer from arachnaphobia (sp?) but they're really quite beautiful.  I have never seen one of these - Victor says it's a banana spider.  It wasn't the spider so much that fascinated us, but the extra large zig zag in his(her) web.  If you know anything about this spider and/or the big zig zag, please leave your info in the comments.  Thanks!

To join in on the Mellow Yellow Monday fun, just click on the Mellow Yellow Monday button in my sidebar...over there to your right.  And tune in tomorrow - we'll have a guest appearance from Devo.  Peace.  B : )

ABC Wednesday and Watery Wednesday

If there is a Bad Blogger Award, I accept it.  I haven't blogged since LAST Wednesday.  Normally the overactive Virgo in me would want to go back and make up for it, but today, I'm just going to accept the fact that I'm a lazy slug, and move more laziness, since I'm going to use the same shot for both memes.  The sloth is never ending folks : )  So here it is, Watery Wednesday and ABC Wednesday W is for Water ( and to see more, please click on the appropriate buttons to the right ).....

Will you please have a wonderful watery Wednesday!  Peace.  B : )

Mellow Yellow Monday

Wow, happy Monday again!  By now, you probably know that I am a sucker for yellow flowers; well, all things yellow really, but flowers especially.  When we first moved here going on ten years ago, I bought some wedelia, because it was yellow.  We're still trying to tame it!  At the time, I did not know it was incredibly invasive.  Down at the very far end of our property, we keep a "wild area" for birds and squirrels and invasive flowers.  That's where we try to keep the passion flower and the wedelia.  It's a pretty place : )

Oh jeez, I did it again - sorry, long post alert!

Our little peach tree was so heavy with fruit, it was lying on the ground.  the peaches were growing like grapes in clusters.

So we liberated the poor tree of its burden and now the crazy thing is growing new leaves!  That's Joy under the tree - she likes to eat wood, and peaches - we're still trying to find out why on the wood.  The peaches she plays with till they "die".  We don't let her do that anymore though, because we didn't know she was eating them until she ate one and vomited a peach pit - thank God it came out!

There is always a skyshow in Florida, no matter what season, what time, or anything - there is ALWAYS something interesting in the sky.  So why don't I take more sky shots???
This is the smaller of Ricky's two little houses - his den.  He's all sacked out there, tucked up in the corner next to my computer desk.

(Actually it's Sunday, but I'm running behind again)

Window AND bottom door panel - too cool!

The Queen Mum gave me these keys for Christmas - I strung them on rough twine and hung them over the door.

All of these memes, and the people who take care of them, and the people who participate are extraordinary - I simply cannot do them justice with my silly little pix.  Please do yourself a favor and go check out some really great shots.  Just click on the appropriate button(s) to the right.

Hope your weekend is enjoyable so far - and better later.  Peace.  B : )

Watery Wednesday and ABC Wednesday "U" if for Ugly

Two for one today, a day late : )

The water collects in this fallen White Bird of Paradise leaf, with sand and other debris, and makes an ugly mess....sort of cool from a photography standpoint, but ugly nonetheless.

Ruby Tuesday - My Apologies

As I was reviewing the shots I took the last few days, I couldn't find anything really red....I had pink, purple, and orange, all of which I consider to be sort of shades of red. When I arrange my papers or my fabric, I always keep those shades close to the reds. Does that make me a bad person : ) Anyway, here is what I have to offer - "shades of red":

The butterfly plant

The Indian Pipe Vine

The thing I can never remember the name of - one of the amorphophallic or whatever plants - some years it come up like this, some years it comes up with stalks and leaves.  When it's like this, it stinks and attracts flies.  Lovely, huh?
A cactus flower.
A teeny tiny wild flower
The Passion Flower
If you were dying to see ruby, I'm sorry : (

Mellow Yellow Monday

A few short days after this shot, this gourd was gone, devoured from the inside out by some tiny boring insect.  So were his siblings. They were cute, all lined up in various stages of growth.  First the cold, now the bugs are killing our stuff.  We had to toss every single nectarine on our tree and there were tons of them and they looked good, till all juice started oozing out of them.  Oh well, they were fun while they were growing.  And the peaches!  Oh my, we had to liberate the tree of all her fruit because she was lying on the ground!  Many of them weren't near ready yet, but we thought we'd spare the tree for next year.

Have a great Monday, and a great week.  Peace.  B : )

Oh boy am I behind!! AND I have a question....

Question - has anyone else experienced any changes in Blogger?  My pictures used to go where I put them, but lately they've been going to the top of the post and I have to move them to where I want them.  It's always possible I changed a setting, being an impatient clicker, but I was wondering if this happened to anyone else????

For every gardening joy

you will find at least one, maybe more, gardening upsets.  For instance, the Passion Flower (above) is invasive AND the bugs do horrible things to the veggies:
Projectile vomiting cloud

The Color Carnival meme has changed some of the rules, so I'm not quite sure this can be entered yet, but here it is before I forget it : )  I'll go check later.
It's hot here and humid too!

I asked my DH why it's back was so bumpy and he said it's probably babies - don't look if critters make you squeamish : )

Looks kind of Halloweenish doesn't it?

Look at all the little bitty palm trees along the curves of my car - looks like custom pin striping!!

To join in on, or just look at, any of these fine memes, please just click on the appropriate button(s) to the right.

Sure hope your weekend is going great - and that next week is even better.  Peace.  B : )

Watery Wednesday and ABC Wednesday (T is for......)

Doesn't this look like fun??

Daddy was in pain, Ricky wanted to make him feel better (twosome), so did Jeffie (threesome).  All males, testosterone.  The whole scene, touching.

Have a wonderful day.  Make someone feel better.  Peace.  B : )

Ruby Tuesday

Happy June!  and Happy Ruby Tuesday!  This shot shows a tree that got a bit damaged in our cold spell, but is coming back nicely.  I will get a closeup of the flowers one day - they're amazing!  The color is so intense and so gorgeous, it cannot be described.  I admit, it's not a pure red; there is some orange involved too, but it's red enough for today : )

Oh, and BTW, it's a Poinciana tree.  They come in other colors, but this is my favorite.  It takes my breath away.  To see more Ruby shots, please click on the Ruby Tuesday button to the right.  Peace.  B : )
