Name This Flower!












If anyone knows the name of the flower/plant, please let me know! It's something my brother planted a few years ago but he got it from someone else and does not know the name of it. It is actually a very stunning flower as you can see by the bottom bloom in the bottom photo. I sure would like to know the name of it...

Morning Light






I love it when plants use another plant as a home without being a parasite. Ferns and orchids do this a lot as do many other plants. It just seems like such a wonderful example of co-existence, doesn't it?

Ring Out the Old and Ring in the New!





For some of you reading this, you've already rung in the New Year and for others like myself, it is about to happen in a few hours. May it be a safe and happy celebration and here's to a new year! As an optimist, I always hope that it will be better than this year-not that this year was bad, I just hope for better!







Small pleasures in life-I bought myself a new rake so that I could more efficiently rake all the doggone (yes, it's come to that as it is a prolific tree that produces every day) macadamia nuts. However, since I bought it, it has been rainy every day-which interferes with my progress on this project! As of 2 hours ago, we've already had more than 4" of rain today and it has rained non-stop since the wee hours of the morning. It's not a storm per se, just a LOT of wet. It's a La Nina kind of weather pattern right now. But, I think better the rain than an epic snow storm, that's for sure!

Holiday Greetings and Glad Tidings!







Is it here already? It's here. Oh, my. Where did the time go and why so fast?

I wanted to take the time to say thank you so much to our SSS2 hosts who have been so steadfast for all of us. I know our numbers have dwindled and I think it's because it has become difficult for some reason to post comments on other's blogs. I know I have not been able to post on other Blogger platforms like I used to. It seems that the ones that do go through are the ones that have some level of moderation (automated or publisher moderation).

In spite of that, I DO hope that this shadow shot tradition lives on into 2017 and years beyond. I love seeing what others see by way of their shadow shots. The variety is endless!

Thank you Magical Mystery Teacher and Gemma (am I missing anyone now?) for being such gracious hosts that allows us this weekly indulgence!

For all of you out there-have a Happy Christmas and a Merry Holiday!

Shadow Puppets




These do remind me of shadow puppets-much like something you'd see in Balinese theater. But, in reality, they are heliconia leaves that have been whipped around by the wind. Like soldiers marching after a long fought battle.
