...cuteness {I was tempted to take it home with me!!]




...creepiness [looks like a giant bug from a SCI-FI movie!!!] Can you guess what it is?

  1. What IS that thing?? I am going to guess it is either not something alive, or it was from the sea. The mop orange feeders are DARLING!!! That was a stroke of genius. The wildflowers are beautiful! The only two I think I know are Hedge Bindweed and Cleome (spider flower).

  4. Yes, I too, think it is part of a palmetto palm. Who would ever think that your orange feeders were once mop heads! Wonderful and ingenious. Pretty flowers.

  7. I'm thinking it is a palmetto branch? They creep me out when they fall as I'm walking -- they sound like a snake. ssss. Love the bird feeders -- I remember being surprised seeing oranges used at the birding places in Port A. (where I saw my first orioles because of them). Beautiful wildflowers!

    1. Weird indeed! And seeing it in partial darkness just before sunrise made it all the more so.

  12. I knew that sci-fi thing had to be some kind of plant material, so I looked in your Tags - palm frond! I agree, it does look kinda scary
    Love your Oriole feeders! I am wondering if an cheap bathroom plunger (bought at the dollar store, completely worthless) would make a feeder, but I guess the handle is too short.
    Beautiful flowers
    Have a wonderful week!

    1. That may work...the handle may not be long enough.

  14. Interesting, Anni, the oranges...I've never seen anything like it. Maybe Canadian birds don't like oranges. Hmm. The flowers are beautiful, but I love the ocean photos, especially the one with people on the...what is it?...pier? breakwater?
    Great stuff.
    Thanks for sharing.

  15. You have the prettiest wildflowers there, Anni! That is a sweet kitty. That last photo is really strange. A blow fish?

  16. I like your feeders! So clever. You've got me thinking about maybe turning a pole lamp into a feeder. Yay!
