When looking at this simple flower, my writer’s mind creates a whole new world. Alien landscapes, a dystopian society, sparks to fire up so many possibilities in one small flower.
Does my writer’s mind miss the beauty that is just in the flower? Never, but it is while delving deeper into the essence of what makes it so beautiful that art is born.
When choosing a spot to nap in, I always choose to blend with my surroundings. The only downfall to this plan is that I get sat on occasionally. ~Bo Jangles
I stepped outside after a pretty brutal thunderstorm, and as always it amazes me the resilience of plants to weather the storm. This rose took the moment to open up, and bloom.

Is your day going at a snail’s pace? Every time I look at the clock I expect hours to have passed. What do I find? That old hour hand moving slowly into the next hour. As they say slow and steady wins the race, well we need to speed the race up a bit today.
We are Larry and Moe. We share a tank with Curly, Thing 1 and Thing 2. We make the day exciting for the Cat’s Eye Gang. They think they are going to catch us, but we know better. We have to admit we love to tease them.
The fair weather and additional rains we have been having are making all the flowers popping out to salute the bright sun.
Neko has a mini-me. his own little doppelganger. We have named him Spooks and he has chosen to make our backyard his domain. He has even been adopted into the Cat’s Eye Gang.
“Don’t let the sun go down on me.” Funny how that song played through my mind as I was driving home with this view in front of me.
Stop and take a moment in your day to just enjoy the beauty of the world around you.

This Prickly Pear bloom is a bright sunny yellow. Perfect for this Monday.

A photo I took in late summer of 2016. One thing I have to say is Texas has some glorious sunsets.
