Kalanchoe

My older sis has the greenest thumb, just as my mom did.  Mine is only slightly green.

Kalanchoe.

These critters are called sweat bees. They can bite or sting at times.

Monday Musings

Silence fills the room as we await a call to join our son and grandsons for a belated birthday celebration for Middle Grandson.  Ten years old.  As I wait I catch up on some blogs and look at the new postings on I Heart Macro 65.  Laura’s poetry/prayer for peace is so relevant for this time.  And there are beautiful photos to enjoy by many other folks who have linked with the macro photography meme.  Magical Mystical Teacher of Macro Monday 2 has a series of thought provoking haiku.

A rock reaches back to Creation’s beginning.  Touch it and you have touched the hand of God.

Critters Up Close

Time for some critters this week.  And some of them are up close.  So I will be joining three  memes with these photos:

For Saturday’s Critters I give you Bosco, my sister’s ‘beloved dog’.  Once bitten by a copperhead he survived with the help of a great vet and the deep pockets of his human dad.

Haven’t a clue as to the genus of this creature.  I am naming it bug on blossom!  Addendum:  it is an assassin bug, good bug, bad bite!

A less than perfectly focused but this is really about having fun and learning shot.
