Last night, my friend Karen, my Mom, and I sat out on screen porch, in the cool summer's night, and made homemade valentines! We had such a nice time...it was a lot of fun...many of the supplies we already owned...just took a trip to the craft store for a few embellishments...anyway, I think they all turned out great...here is a sampling of a few of mine. My husband made us grilled talapia, fingerling potatos and asperagus, which we ate with a lovely glass of different wines left over from Christmas!!! A night to remember, for sure!
Well, right after I finished telling Rosemarie (see my links) that I don't usually bother to mess with posting my photos LEFT of RIGHT, here I am doing it! I took these pictures yesterday...the bright sun of winter is really bringing out the color in a few of my succulents...as you can see my last post of Flippin Flapjacks is so RED! It is not usually like this in summer...but then again I have only had it through one summer, and maybe it has needed all this time to develope it's dark shade. Same for this beauty above, which I used to think was a kalanchoe of sorts, but now I am thinking is a crassula! Ha ha ha...do I know names, of what??? It is not my forte, obviously! I keep putting off buying books to use for identification thinking my obsession will not last. For those of you who have been reading my blog (or blogs) a while, you know how fickle I can be! I think I will go to Water When Dry's blog (see links), and order some books through her Amazon link right now!
