In Honor of…..

….EARTH DAY

My shadow also known as my grandson Arai, was helping me pull weeds in the flower bed today.  He wants to do what mom-mom is doing but his attention span needs to be a bit longer.  I did more calling him back to help me finish me then he actually worked.  He is a work in progress….

Most people, myself included, consider Dandelions weeds because they are very invasive and take away from our beautiful green lawns.  Dandelions are the flower with many health uses according to Organic Facts.  According to Organic Facts here are some of the things that they are good for, bone health, liver disorders, acne and skin care and many more uses.

These Dandelions are growing in the brick patio at my mother’s house.

Do you consider it a weed or flower?

Rainbow Colors

Let’s Just Blow Bubbles

SOMETIMES . . .
Let’s just blow bubbles,
For no good reason
Let’s just blow bubbles,
Laugh a little, watch them disappear
Not even wonder where.
Smile and touch the rainbow colors
Watch them float in the air.
No reason why–
No goals, no structure.

SOMETIMES . . .
Let’s just
blow bubbles.

Things That Make you Say “HMMM…”

Driving down this little side street by my home I came across this toilet.  Someone must have actually dumped it there instead of it falling off a truck.  I say this because it was just sitting upright just to the side of the road.

What have you seen on the side of the street that makes you say “hmmm….”?

Frosty Trails

After editing this photo and converting it to black and white,  my first thought was trails on the moon.

What is your first impression?

WP Photo Challenge

It’s not this time of year without the falling pinecones.  The shape of a pinecone has always reminded me of christmas. As a child in elementary school we would decorate them like Christmas trees to hang as ornaments on the real tree.

Eminent Domain

Here in the United States we have a thing called Eminent Domain, which means that the local, state, or federal government can take a portion or all of your property if they want/need it. Usually they will give you market value for your property but that usually is not enough.

Looking at this leaf it appears that nature also exercises Eminent Domain.

Is it really fall?

Some of you may have a couple of my earlier post when I was dreading the fall weather since it will start to get cold.  Well the weather here in NJ is anything but fall like.  Today we had temperatures in the 80’s and tomorrow we may even break the record if it reaches 86 degrees.

I haven’t taken many pictures at my workplace oasis in a while so since the weather was so nice I decided to take a few pictures.
