Pieces of Florida.
Here's some scenery from Florida. Well, at least from my back yard. In the future I'll take some pics of spots other than my back yard, but for now check these out -- if it pleases you. :)
Hopefully they'll get larger when you click on them.
Anyone have pics of their area?
A tiny cluster of flowers. They were growing on a vine. I think they're weeds, but I thought they were neat with their vibrant different colors. Even if they're weeds, they're still pretty. :)
This is a topiary that I had to have. I loved the shape of it. It needs trimming. I've been trying to grow it out a bit before trimming it off.
When it's trimmed it reminds me of a sort of bonsai tree. Very Japanese-Garden looking I think.
Again, I think this might be a weed. I never knew I had such things (flowers/weeds) in my back yard. I went searching for interesting pictures to take, and I found all of these little treasures. Anyway... I love the rich purple color of these little flowers. They're not very big either.
Little berries. Another weed? Does it matter? I liked the look of them, so I shot them. :) They make me feel sort of holiday-ish. Why is that?
Finally, she has let me take a picture of her. This is my dog Baby. She's terrified of just about everything -- or at least she was. Since she's been on her own with just me and Bart she's made leaps and bounds at not fearing everything in sight. (And I mean everything!) She's been absolutely terrified of the camera. Slowly I've been getting her used to it, and finally she let me shoot some pics of her. She's very beautiful. :)
This is a bud growing from a vine that is coming over our fence from the neighbors. I don't mind. I like the foliage, and now the pretty buds. :) There's a ton of honeysuckle flopping over our fence, but it's not currently in bloom so I didn't take a pic of it. I'm a flower snob what can I say.
This picture and the one below it are as close to autumn as I'm going to get. I don't remember this banana tree turning colors last year, but it was also a lot smaller last year. :/ Go figure. Anyway, I was totally enthralled to see some leaf color changing in my back yard. There were also a few vines changing colors, but I didn't bore you with pics of those.
I can't think of anything interesting or boring to say about this. :/
This cactus probably stands three to four feet high. It's pretty neat looking -- some skinny guy with funky hair. That is my pool in the back ground. I couldn't get that out of the pic without some fancy photoshop skills -- which we all know I don't have. :)
In case they didn't get bigger, here's the link to the scrapbook page: Gallery
