Kinda wishing I was there instead of here freezing my butt off today. *sigh*
It once again took BG to point it out to me, but we had an amazing sunset the other day.
I love how the wings on the bee look like stained glass with those veins.
Sorry, I’ve looked and looked and I just cannot find out what kind of flower this is. I saw it in my FIL’s front flower bed and thought it was cool. Of course, he didn’t know what it was as it was something my MIL planted years ago so that knowledge passed along with her. If anyone knows, feel free to comment.
I love the translucence paired with the darker green and burgundy tipped veins because it is pretty. Then you get that “Grrr… Stay Away!” vibe from those thorny, spiky, hairy looking parts. Once it busts open, you get this delicately cupped white flower with a vivid fuchsia center. The whole plant was just kind of gangly looking, but the different pieces made it really cool and funky looking. For all I know, it is actually a weed.
My Autumn Sedum is just beginning to tinge pink. The season change is coming. The quality isn’t the best as I was avoiding getting drenched, but I still thought it was pretty.
This is the storm system that brought with it some much needed cooler temps. I am now sitting in a house that is nearly too cold after having melted yesterday. At lest I’m doing it while my new HVAC is getting installed.
What a crazy, chaotic, mess of a weekend. I am glad it is over, but it seems it was just the beginning of more home improvements and repairs. All unplanned, unwanted and kind of stunning.
I obviously enjoy a wide range of books across many genres, but the ones that tend to stick with me the most are the ones that can give me a story about the imperfections of humanity and do so with a strong emotional impact, be it through humor, joy, anger, love, tears or grief. As long as the story fully engages my emotions, I’m probably going to really enjoy it, but even more so if it has a central focus on family.
My kids are back to school and have been now for several days. They are both in high school now, which has changed my school routines a bit as Hubby is now taking them both instead of him taking MC and me taking BG since they were in different schools.
Or… if you like the common/slang name… naked ladies.
Or me. You know… either works.
