“A wise old owl lived in an oak;
The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard...
Why can't we all be like that bird?”

Orange Blossom Special...


Five and Flowers today...

FLOWERS

A short walk through the woods at Hans Suter Reserve. I was really dazzled by the dancing shadows and sunlight dapple along the path.  I spied a hummingbird flitting from blossom to blossom, along with a green anole on a fallen tree limb. Oh, and "What can make that little ol' ant think he can move that honeysuckle plant. Tho it's not a 'true' honeysuckle, this is named Cape Honeysuckle [a native plant of South Africa].



















FIVE on FRIDAY



- - -

Leonard: I'm just saying, you catch more flies with honey than with vinegar.
Sheldon: You catch even more with manure, what's your point?

- - -

October 21st, Bud and I moved to the Texas coast....12 years ago.

- - -

Anni: "I made some iced tea!"
Bud: "No thanks, I don't want any."
Anni: "I didn't make any for you, tho."
Bud: "Then, why did you mention 'iced tea' in the first place?"
Anni: "Just to start a conversation. It worked!"

....the end

- - -


Q: What kind of cheese is made backwards?

A: Edam.

Baseball...
Does it disturb anyone else that “The Los Angeles Angels” baseball team translates directly to “The The Angels Angels”?  The owners got wise...renamed the team Anaheim Angels!!

  1. Hello Anni!:) Such lovely captures!:) Your dappled shade scenes are beautiful,..with the light highlighting the gorgeous colours of the Honeysuckle. Hummingbirds, lizard, and even the ant, enhance the beauty of your pictures, and I thoroughly enjoyed my visit, with the bonus of Five on Friday, which made me smile.:))

  31. I love that Cape Honeysuckle, but I'm sure it wouldn't grow in SW Missouri. As a matter of fact, I can't even grow trumpet vine and it grows wild here. Brown thumbs on both hands.
