Wednesday's Word

The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want.
He makes me to lie down in green pastures, He leads me
beside still waters and restores my soul
Psalm 23:1-3a

Life's a Beach!

I just had to share these pics and say wish you were here. Life's a beach and I love it.

All of these photos and more like them would make great greeting cards or photo gifts and are available in my redbubble shop too.

If only computers had "Smell-O- Vision"...

If computers just had "smell-o-vision, I could share this wonderful fragrance with you. My queen of the night ( epiphyllum oxypetalum ) bloomed the other night with 2 blooms and was so fragrant, you could smell its jasmine like perfume wafting through the night air long before you could detect its source. Once you found its source, you found yourself mesmerized by the beauty of its flower, not wanting to look away. These cacti only bloom at night and only when rootbound. In their native habitat they grow in trees using the trees for support often climbing as tall as 20 feet. Here they are much smaller and even in my mild climate, they must be protected for the winters. The flowers only last for 1 night and they don't bloom until after dark, so I stayed up as late as I could to get a succession of pictures for you. I hope you like it.
