Something pretty funny. And something pretty…

Something pretty funny...(ok, maybe just kinda funny depending upon your style of humor)…I was out driving around taking pictures one afternoon and I just found this scene so comical. It looked like the Stay Puff Marshmallow Man had been walking around and leaving “stuff” behind. (I didn’t see any footprints though. He was very sneaky that way. 😉 ) (And another thought as I ran the spell check…why do we say marshMELLOW but it’s spelled marshMALLOW?)


And something pretty...I’ve had these orchids for well over a month now. In the long run even if they die, they were still cheaper than buying from a florist. (Good ol’ Home Depot!) I actually have three orchid plants now. I had run into a fellow shopper the day I was there and as it turned out she had over 30 orchid plants (much to her husband’s dismay!), so I asked her all sorts of questions. But she was very informative, and seems to have steered me on the right orchid path. The main thing she said “if you can grow an African Violet, you can grow an orchid.” I haven’t killed my African Violet yet, and it’s over a year old, and has bloomed several times. So I figured I’m good to go on the orchids. Time will tell!

    I found orchids remarkably easy although mine seemed to be a bit picky regarding light – they wanted a fair amount. I’m with you that they are a much better deal than a cut bouquet even if you can’t keep them alive. Your hay pic is quite pretty. Our landscapes have been brown for months now although we are close to rainy season again – it will be nice to see some green on the hills again!

    The first picture looks like marshmallows dotting the field. These white wrapped hay bales do evoke a smile don’t they??

    As a farm girl, I remember hay baling days but more the squares that we lifted. Then the big round bales use to dot the fields and makes for a great picture scene. Now, the hay is oh so preserved, yet…not quite the same look…

    The orchids are stunning!

    Looks to me like Puff the Magic Dragon was in your area a left a few “deposits”! The orchid is very nice and looks very fragile with the light coming through the petals. Very soft.

What do you think?
