My next door neighbors have a fabulous yard, replete with many flowering plants. Unlike me, the black thumbed. Oh, I can grow aloe and ivy… easy, hard to kill stuff. They, however, must know the secret.
I have the same plants that flourish on their lot but perish (with extreme prejudice) on mine. It’s crazy.
But I get to appreciate their efforts as they grow onto my postage stamp sized piece of real estate.
I can’t grow hibiscus, but theirs is robust… and trying to come visit. Hope he makes it.
Likewise the bougainvillea is going gangbusters where mine never really got off the ground.
I fully expect to see the part of their plants on my side of the fence attacked by all manner of insects and mold.
We live in south Florida and the sunsets are usually something special, but there were several kinds of interesting clouds last night… including mammatus.
Took these with my phone since it was to hand. But… don’t know if the camera would have been any better. Wish I would have done a pano!!
I’d never have forgotten about this space years ago, when blogging was such a community affair. But I did. A sign that I need to close up shop for good? We’ll see.
Could be a moth, could be a butterfly in the skipper family. Anyway, it was perched upon my plumeria this monring.
Took this just now with my mobile. Can’t wait for the ivy to grow back!!
Just meaningless, meandering photographs from around the yard.
First, a dandelion pompom or two, because even weeds can be pretty:
Daisy the Undeterred, going anywhere she wants… even under grass!
The last bougainvillea picture this year, promise.
(I had my fingers crossed.)
A young visitor:
Wow. While not the best photo ever, I love the detail of the wing. Didn’t want to take it in full sun (note the white bars on the wings) but still!
