Selfie Time!

When your 6 year old grandson is asking a bunch of “why” questions and you just can’t take it anymore you gladly hand over the cell phone when he asks.

Before I handed over the phone I had to take a quick selfie with him wearing emoji sunglasses. Arai took a bunch of selfies, he even made me a short but sweet video.

When Settings Are Wrong

Some people walk in the rain, others just get wet. by Roger Miller

Today is a cold rainy here in New Jersey not really good for outdoor photos but I did not want my new found momentum to fade away.

So I put on the heavy coat and ventured outside. To see what the rain has to offer besides wetness.

I forgot to change the settings on the camera. I still think it came out okay. What do you think?

Last Blooms-3

Looking out today it looks beautiful.   Then that gush of wind comes and makes you realize that those 2 days of 70°+ temperatures where just to sike us out and make us not think about winter fast approaching.

Here are the remaining pictures of my last blooms of the 2018 season. 

I am already looking forward to thr spring 2019 season.

Last Blooms-2

Here are a couple more photos of the flowers and plant still blooming or full of life.

The first 2 images is a Split Leaf Philodendron. This one does not have any blooms but it caught my eye because it was full of Caterpillars. When I purchased this plant the leaves were beautiful but now the leaves are food.

 

 

This Rose Bush looks terrible but the bud is beautiful and I know that the actual bloom will be amazing.

Last Blooms-1

It is beginning to get a bit chilly here in New Jersey and I still have a few (18) plants that need to be planted.

Sunday morning, my only full day off, I decided that this is the day. I began planting and was only able to plant 5 of them in this chilly weather.

Instead i decided to take pictures of the remaining blooms.

This one is my favorite…a fallen Dahlia on the 2nd deck I made. (This is a 10×10 deck bigger than the first.)

More pictures to come soon..

Thanks for visiting!

PS…I broke down and paid someone to finish planting the remaining flowers.

Natures Teacups?

After seeing my grandson off to school (kindergarten now!) I took a little stroll around my yard. When I look at my last remaining flowers I notice a bunch of brown things all over the place.  I think they are mushrooms.  When you look in the 2nd photo it looks like little eggs and some of them hatched.

Today I Smiled

Today was a bit frustrating as I made an error at work dealing with others pay. The issue is resolved but I do not like making mistakes especially when it involves money and other people.

When I got home I regrouped by vegetating on the sofa watching some random TV show. Then my grandson handed me some mail. At first all I see is a bill then another bill, then there is this shiny square envelope with unfamiliar hand writing. When I turn it over I see it is from France! Then I smiled! It’s from Brian.

I met Brian here on WordPress about 3 years ago and I feel that if we were to ever meet in person we would be true friends.

Thank you Brian for making me smile and taking a bit of time out of your vacation to find this card for me.

If you haven’t already been to Brian’s blog go check it out and enjoy some of his travels with “Scotty”.
