Froggie Went a Courtin'

 Around the flower solar lights, we saw these frogs. I did not see much evidence that the frogs are lights, but they are the same price as the flowers ($39.00). So I suspect they are solar lights as well.

Trick Of The Eye

 We saw these pretty flowers outside the Garden Center.





But what makes them even more special? None of them are real flowers, they are solar lights in disguise!! See the lights inside these?

And these look a bit fake, too.


I think they are really pretty, and will look great in the day, and create light at night.

What's Hot Today

 We saw the coolest car passing us on the street. Phil remarked that it looked like it was heading for the park. So we followed it! Sure enough, it was there in the parking lot, and the owners had gotten out and left. This left me lots of time to snap it! Phil said it is a Hot Rod, or Street Rod.



I didn't notice until I was downloading the photos that the spider web on the grill has fake spiders on it! Do you see them?


I know nothing about the engine things.


Looks like an old fashioned farm style visor.


So ended my snapping adventure. The hood ornament had a ponytail scrunchie around it's neck!

P.S. - You figured out my mystery! The plants in my last post are indeed Milkweed. That would be why they planted so many all over the year; to attract bees and butterflies!

Mystery Yard

 When we first drove quickly past this yard, I thought they had planted corn all over their front yard. On the way back, I saw that it is not corn! So what IS it? It covers most of their small front yard.





The need for mystery is greater than the need for an answer.

Sunday Sunset

 Just snapped this one yesterday! In order.







"I find it incredibly amazing how, at every sunset, the sky is a different shade. No cloud is ever in the same place. Each day is a new masterpiece. A new wonder. A new memory."

Just Peachy Saturday

 I recently saw two really pretty, yet different peach colored plants. This peach rose bush is a couple blocks away.




I almost never see this kind of flower in this color, but it is so striking!!





A little friend flew by to be in the photo!


·       Peach represents warmth, comfort, and the freshness of spring.

·       It has historical significance relating to spirituality, immortality, and unity.

·       The color influences feelings of calmness and impacts communication and design.

In ancient China, the peach was seen as a powerful emblem within Taoist religion. Of particular significance was the peach tree of immortality, a legendary plant whose fruit was said to grant eternal life to those who consumed it.

Cow Moo Flage

 Always one to be with the current times, the Big Cow has dressed in Cowmooflage! I believe it must be to commemorate D-Day.
