When I posted that ‘eye opener’ post the other day I did not expect all of your wonderful responses. I was really bummed out after watching and listening to that guy tell me what he though about my blog. It was a short video of him using his cursor on your blog page. He sounded sort of like an automaton, but you could tell he was human, he hemmed and hawed and said um too many times to be an automaton.
In hind sight, I figure he’s in his 20’s, some kind of techie stuck in a cubicle all day. He may or not have a life outside of his computer. I also gather that this ‘Peek’ review may be for professionals, not simple bloggers who are sharing their lives, loves, crafts, etc.
All of your comments made me feel so much better and I will just continue as I was doing, although, I did take care of broken links and did away with a couple of pages at the top.
Below are photos I took late in the day yesterday, after supper. Orchids ~ I don’t have names for any of these.
I call this ‘Doug’s Orchid’ because he gave it to me. He is a customer from where I work. He also gave me a small staghorn fern, both of these given many years ago when he was moving.
Air plant ‘Tillandsia’ fasciculata , Frangipani,
Texas Sage and Tibouchina
These are called Florida cherries, I don’t know the real name.
They are very sour and usually have worms. Ick! The shrub does make a nice thick hedge though.
Fleabane and hisbiscus
This is the white flowering Thunbergia erecta. I have the purple and also have the light purple flowering Clock vine which is in the same family. The clock vine blooms are in my header picture this time.
This is Yarrow, second season and I love the feather leaves and the honey scented blooms.
This is a Skipper butterfly on an Amaryllis bloom.
I walked around to the other side and got him from this angle.
Here is one of the ‘Skipper’ photos turned into a painting, using the program,
Corel Painter Essentials 4, detailed watercolor setting.
Again, I want to say thank you and how grateful I am for you all . You have been here for me through thick and thin. I appreciate all of the love, prayers, encouragement and support. It has all helped me in the last 15 months of this new road I am travelling in my life’s journey.
Love and hugs,
