Legs

My vacation is going great.  Today we may go see the wild horses in Corolla.

In the meantime here is a picture of a little grasshopper who tried to hitch a ride to the beach with us yesterday.

Throwback Thursday: OBX

Today officially marks 7 days away from the beginning of peace and relaxation.  I cannot wait!

Vacation will be in our usual location, Outer Banks, NC.  I have already begun reviewing some of the pictures from last year.  I will be able to see the sunrise again.

Here is one of my favorite pictures from last year.

Curly Q’s and Stars

When I looked at this flower with its curls and stars, one of my first thoughts was that it would be a great hat for a character in a Dr. Seuss  book.

If you look close there is even a slight line under the petals that could be a frown.  ( Sometimes my imagination gets the best of me.)

What are your  thoughts?

When you open your eyes….

….you began to notice the beauty that is all around us everyday.

When I passed this lake I took a quick glance and noticed some swans taking an evening stroll under the glowing sky.  So I turned around and parked on the side of the road and took a few shots with my cell phone.

Open Your Arms

Just a thought.

If we open our arms what would we receive?

What a Tangled Web We Weave….

….When at first we try to deceive.

My first attempt photographing a spiderweb that was in my Balcony Oasis.  Looks like a bug is about to be dinner.

Balcony Oasis – Part 3

I have been working on my Balcony Oasis over the last 2 weekends.  As you see there is not much space but I plan on getting as much on the balcony as I can.

I still need to do a few things before I can call it is finished.

The table and chairs need to be painted.  I am not sure if I want to leave them white or paint it red (I am leaning towards red).  I also need something to create different heights that will not take up much room.  Any suggestions?

I guess some of you may wonder why the styrofoam cup is in the picture; well it is because my grandson wanted it there since it is a plant that he grew in daycare.  He told me that he wanted it on the balcony with the other flowers.  How could I refuse?  I will have to get a proper container for his plant.

In Balcony Oasis 2, I mentioned that I wanted a plant that attracts butterflies.  I did purchase a plant called Dianthus which is supposed to bring the butterflies.  We shall see.
