and then, and then, and then…

Know what happened? An actual flower grew on my hibiscus experiment/plant.  As promised I was going to post an update on my farming skills by taking a quick picture and posting it. But then I got distracted…

Apparently there’s also a lavender plant in my front yard. It requires zero upkeep from me – thus explaining it’s survival and healthy growth all these years, I wanted to take a picture of that too and take credit for its beautifulness (yes, it’s a word) …but then I found a big, fat bee on it. And then a butterfly. A plain jane little white butterfly. Then I couldn’t get the zoom on my camera to work. So instead of trying to figure out how to use it correctly, I just took 1,000 pictures hoping for a couple of good shots.

Then i came back inside and found our cat sitting in a compromising position on a chair. This can’t be normal behavior for a cat – it didn’t even look comfortable.  Plus she looks like she’s 500 pounds and needs to be broken out of the house via crane. And then I had to burn the chair. Weirdo cat.

Then I was exhausted by all the to do and had a diet coke (too early for wine).

The end.

(apologies for telling the story like an 8 year old – no offense 8 year olds)

This is the flower that started it all….

Then I saw this!

Then I saw this…ewww…puke puke

    Congrats on the hibiscus.And the pictures of the bee,very cool.For close ups of flowers&bee’s etc. might I suggest the macro setting on your camera.As for your cat.I believe the odd pose is due to her pretending to be riding a horse in the Preakness!

      I can’t take her to weight watchers and not take myself – damn cat! Since i’ve only taken pictures of my kids all my life – I’m having fun taking pics of other things in the world. But it’s so hard! So glad you like it!
