On December 27, 2019, we lucky denizens of the Florida panhandle are enjoying temperatures in the mid-70’s. I’ve seen lizards skittering about and bees pollinating plants, but they all refused to remain still for a photo.
My front yard has some gorgeous pink flowers that accommodated me, though. I’m calling this photo, “Is this a Camellia?”
Valentine’s Day was pretty low key here at Doright Manor. Poor Studly Doright has been swamped at work, so after he got home on Thursday evening I greeted him at the door with his gift and no expectations of an evening out.
His gift appeared to be a small Igloo cooler that I’d decorated with heart stickers. His reaction was underwhelming, until, that is, I told him that was just the gift wrapping. Inside was his actual gift:
A tube filled with Reese’s Cups and
two pounds of small batch, thick cut bacon!
For dinner we enjoyed pancakes and Studly’s Valentine’s Day bacon. Yum!
For his part Studly showered me with flowers, candy, and some oh-so-soft pajamas from PajamaGram. They’re lovely. I might’ve even worn them last night. Wink, wink. There’s a slight possibility that bacon is an aphrodisiac.
I found this beauty in Tallahassee. What shall we title this photo? “Pretty in Pink?”
I took this one in the gardens at Doonbeg. It should be called, “Bee Irish!”
Little white daisies
Sweet petals to pluck in play
He loves me, or not
Lovers of the light
Faces turned toward the sun
Bathing in its glow
Woven in virginal wreaths
On a summer’s day
Look how pretty the flowers in my courtyard area are. I’m just beginning to decorate this spot, so I’m calling this one, “Not a Bad Start.”
These tiny little wildflowers are popping up in the yard across the road from Doright Manor. I call them, “Tiny Little Wildflowers Across the Road.”
I bought myself some flowers for Easter. This one should be called, “They Smell Even Prettier Than They Look.”
Happy Easter, friends.
I have it on good authority that these charming little blossoms are celebrities, and apparently might be repelled by garlic and direct sunlight…. I couldn’t have come up with a better title than the one on its tag: “Calibrachoa Mini Famous, Vampire and Compact.”
