2017 Red Admiral

I am blessed with another treasure! This red admiral came parked by my deck and stopped long enough for me to go inside to fetch my camera. Yes, just one shot, but I was pleased. I have seen many red admiral butterflies flying about, but I didn’t have to chance to take photos. Surprisingly, they seemed to be small in sizes, but the beauty is undeniable.

Pretty Gladiola

How gorgeous is this? I love gladiola in all different colors, and at my new dwelling, I planted a row of gladiolus along the back side of my condo. Their flowers last a long time, which always give me such a pleasant to see when I am outside.This lovely color, not sure what it calls, but I like it very much!

2017 Male House Finch

As I open the back door to my deck, I saw this male house finch with his mate. He is content just to watch after her as she prances this way and that way. I couldn’t take a photo of her, but he stands still for me to snap a few. I am happy to see him, but I don’t have anything to offer them. Putting up bird feeders is not allow as they will bring on mice to the complex. Oh well, I just have to learn to settle with what I can do or have.

Morning Sky

“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.”

― John Lubbock

Good morning to all! Have a great Friday!

Growing Within

I saw this at my local Conservatory and I thought it was just out of this world. Within the heart, there is something else growing.

I love the purple color around this plant. I look for the name of this plant, but can’t find any. I would like visiting my Conservatory more often but there is always so many things to do in a day!
