PINK ABOUNDS!


My cell phone was busy that same day as with the Plumbago, when I looked up to discover these 
beautiful Mexican Petunia blooms as well!


Judging from the number of buds, many more blossoms will receive a welcome one day soon!

FEEL BLUE NO MORE!

 I could not help but take advantage of the opportunity to get these pictures when I discovered the several Plumbago offerings outside one of our medical facilities I had reason to visit today. I have never been more impressed with the quality of a cell phone photo than I was when I got these and others downloaded to my computer! Enoy.

WELCOME LITTLE VISITORS



I was pleasantly surprised to see these beautiful dime-sized wild Indian strawberry blossoms hiding in our back yard grass this morning . To me they are more than pretty little blooms ~ they are reminders of  times spent with my very dear friend, Freda Willard, in Northern Maine with the better known tiny white strawberry blossoms that grow into full-grown ripe,red berries. What a delightful memory this morning! And, yet, what amazing beauty is included in each individual tiny yellow bloom all on its own!

ORIGINAL DESERT IN THE CITY

Here is the original "DESERT IN THE CITY" 
August 25, 2011
Yesterday when I took and posted what has now been named "DESERT IN THE CITY PART II", I was unaware of the closeness of the photography dates, day-and-month-wise,though five years apart. This morning,it was with pleasure I was able to print the old and the new to deliver to or new neighbors as a welcome to our neighborhood.
It is a true blessing to be able to see such beauties as we leave the end of our alley on whatever new venture we meet for the day.
