I don't have anything worthy of Watery Wednesday today, and if I did, it couldn't possibly top the one at Ricepatty's Repertoire, so I'm sending you on a little trip over there - have fun!

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 : )

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.
SIX WORD SATURDAY:
HAPPY BIRTHDAY LINCOLN - TODAY YOU'RE ONE!
(Actually it's Sunday, but I'm running behind again)
Window AND bottom door panel - too cool!
SUNDAY SHADOW SHOTS:
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 : )

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.

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

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.
