Got a good reason For taking the easy way out


What Are the Odds?

I'm going to begin and end this post with some things.... odd ...


...at the Botanical Gardens, well hidden beneath a cactus plant...a rock!  Instantly, to me, it seemed like a human mask [Phantom of the Opera, kinda sorta?].  It's natural....not painted....I got down on the ground, and checked!!!


...a piece of rotting tree branch at Paradise Pond...I saw the heart of it all!


...slime covered oyster shells.  The odd thing was, for me, the distinct odor of rotting seaweed.


...what's odd about this?  Nothing really, except I don't know what kind of flower this is.  Oh, and there is a teeny tiny 'odd' bug on the petal.


...two things odd about this...first the fact I stood still long enough to get a photo of this snake!  I HATE SNAKES!!  Second, the leaf is heart shaped?  Odd something of beauty such as a heart can be near something so terrifying to me.  [Yes, it's caught a fish]


...odd!  What did this gull get into?  Oil?


...seeing double?  That's odd...so did I - There are two katydids mirrored [coupled] on the chain link fence.  [you may call them cicadas]
