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.

Room #211

In a couple of my recent post I showed some images of my new tenants like Sir Quenti U. Irrel, Esq (affectionately named by Brian) and Theodore Oliver Alexander Donovan, III.  I now have 2 new tenants and one has already been evicted.  See if you can tell who was quickly evicted?

My mailbox broke some time ago and I still have not fixed it.  A new mailbox was purchased but due to work schedules, life and where it falls on my list of things to do, it hasn’t been replaced yet.  So given this time a little birdie must have been staking it out and decided to make a home for her coming little ones.

When I finally catch her I will post her name, and collect some rent…LOL

Now this squatter has been evicted.  Mr. Wallace Antonio Sebastian Peterson aka Wasp.  I do not like these critters.  They are territorial and inflict pain when they are threatened.  Plus I am allergic to the sting.  He had to go.  I just hope he does not take me to court since I did not give adequate notice.

Meet Mr. Theodore Oliver Alexander Donovan, III

Meet Mr. Theodore Oliver Alexander Donovan, III aka TOAD who lives under my steps.  In a previous post, Spare Room, I let you all know that Toads/Frogs live under my steps.  Well as you clearly see by Theodore, I still have not fixed the steps.  There is a plan in motion to fix them this summer.

A Patriotic Turkey

The other day as I pulled into my yard I saw 3 female turkeys and this big old male strutting through my yard.  The females were harder to capture as the kept darting off towards the woods every step I took in their direction them.  But this big old Tom Turkey took his sweet time.  Although he could hear me walking towards him he never moved faster, he just kept showing off his tail feathers and moving with purpose (so it seemed) towards the woods.  His face and neck were red, white and blue hence why I call him a Patriotic Turkey.

Today is Memorial Day here in the USA and I thought it fitting to share my Patriotic Turkey.

Fairies all around us

These are not actually fairies but termites. Before they settled down on this tree stump, they were fluttering all around looking faries…..sometimes my imagination can be very vivid for 52 year “young” woman.

Termites can reek much havoc on a home by causing hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars in damage to the structure of the property.

In spite of this, I will still consider them fairies for this post.

Tag Your It!

“Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.” by Don McCullin

 

Today I watched these two little squirrels chasing each other up, down and around this tree.  They were fun to watch and photograph.  It made me remember times when my bothers and I would play “tag your it”, “Mother May I” or kickball in this same backyard many years ago.  It brought back fun times.

A Meeting At the Watering Hole

At my mother’s house she has a bird bath and everyday the bird bath is full of bees.

There is nothing pedestrian about this scene.  The bees move in such an excited frenzy.

Art of Observation

To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”
