P U


 Hello Folks ~ As the title says, P U, which was my sentiment from an awful stench that lasted at the most 2 days caused by Clathrus ruber, which "is a species of fungus in the stinkhorn family, and the type species of the genus Clathrus. It is commonly known as the latticed stinkhorn, the basket stinkhorn, or the red cage, alluding to the striking fruit bodies that are shaped somewhat like a round or oval hollow sphere with interlaced or latticed branches." You can read more here. It looks like something from outer space. I noticed the smell first, which smelled like something dead, then started looking around to see if I could see any flies. Saw some and they led me to this pot of begonias, where the fungus had grown. You can see a fly in this picture.





Had this pop up in another pot of some other flowering plant last year. Not pleasant that's for sure. Scent is gone now.

On to something much better, avocados on my tree. These are really high up, top of roof level. They aren't ready yet.



Can you find Miss Tork? When I saw her sitting there like that I just had to get a picture. She's a sweetie. I have to admit, this is how my living room usually looks, lived in, and not ready for company. ;-)



Below is a felt heart I made, 3 inches wide by 1 3/4 inches high. Making 24 of these to give out at our last GriefShare meeting for this session. I really am enjoying making these as I've not really done any embroidery in quite sometime. I bought a pkg of fabric sheets that you print on, just peel and sew on. I had some other sheets, that you print on, then iron on, but you could hardly get a needle through the material so I tried something different and really like this. I printed out the heart shape with the words 'Love is Forever'.  Now that I am looking at this completed one, I think I will add a rose bud and leaves underneath the word forever.


Last, but not least, I was about to hang out some laundry to dry the other day, and saw this trampled weed and had to take a picture of it. I love finding hearts in unexpected places. 



So far, hurricanes are staying out to sea, here on our side of FL, hopefully there will be no more headed this way. Hurricane season ends the end of Nov. Hurricane Wilma hit here the end of Oct. 2005. Very late in the season. Praying for those dealing with flooding from Imelda, and those rebuilding their lives in the Bahamas.

Some rain is predicted and hopefully it will happen as things need watering, and then I won't have to pay for it, because God will have supplied it for free.

Well, that's it for now. Have a great Friday and weekend ~ FlowerLady
