Well, whadaya know...

I went out to sit by my daughter, who had downloaded a CREATURE CREATOR from www.spore.com (which is very neat, BTW, if you enjoy custom created creatures that you can bring to life afterward)...and I just sat and looked out my back windows and saw nothing but green. The fence has gotten covered with vines, my bushes along the fence, and the trees, all together just for some strange reason looked so beautiful to me this evening...at around 7:30pm, as the sun was setting, and everything just sort of glowed. Well, everything but the dead orange tree in my neighbors backyard! I don't know if I actually captured the glow here, but I tried to anyway! It just made me realize what a paradise I live in here in south Florida. It can be really lush and lovely at times.

I hope everyone had a wonderful day today. My week thus far has been extremely busy, and I am hoping for a bit of slow down soon! This is where I appreciate my blog and all of my blogger friends so much...I can come home, sit down and enjoy all of your updates and photos with my poor old legs up and sip on my Fresca quite happily! Gee, this feels good!!! Below is a pic of how my little wax beans are starting to come up. I took this 2 days ago, and tonight I counted 21 plants above soil and still more to come. I can't wait to see what happens. My fear is that it may get too hot for them...so I am just sending them all positive thoughts and words of encouragement...soon I may try singing to them...but they hear me talking to the lizards and whistling to the birds every morning out my kitchen window...and as I am so happily doing this, my husband and daughter are wondering which looney bin to call to come pick me up!!! LOL.

we're hitting the time of year when anything green is reason for comment... I know what you mean when you talk about things glowing right around sunset though... certain days the light takes on a really special quality... you're gonna have a bumper crop of beans if you don't watch out!

Hi Julie, I agree with you that the appreciation and wishes we get from our blogger friends are great to boost you up, however tiring the day might have been.
Don't worry about the beans, you'll have a lovely harvest!
Best Wishes.

Julie, I know the evening glow you speak of. I'm sure it's different here in Calif from your So Fla glow, but it is a thing of beauty.

You're the second person today to make me wish I'd planted beans!

Wow - planting in June in Florida. You are a gardening risk taker, LOL. Actually, I think you can make a little shade tent out of cheap cheesecloth to help take the intense sun down a notch. You just need to make sure that air can circulate. Vickie

All that green looks glorious. Things are getting brown here now, even with regular irrigation. Just can't fight the intense sun and 114 degree temps. You say you want to move here??????????????????

Aiyana-
If I live here or there, I will spend most of my days in a/c anyway, but what vistas I could partake of there!!!! LOL. Or maybe I should spend summers in the mountains of Tennessee!!!
