Sweet Violets: Flower of the Day, May 25, 2017


One of the songs our dad used to serenade us with was “Sweet Violets.” It was one song I knew all the lyrics to when I was a little girl. Still do. I bet you wish you could hear me singing along as you listen to it here. I’m curious about how many people recognize this song. If you do, please tell me so in the comments section. Did you sing along? I did. Every word.

Frangipani: Flower of the day, May 23, 2017


My plumeria tree just keeps on blooming this year.  The leaves are lusher than usual as well. I’ll try to enjoy them before the rains come and pick them all!

Plumeria (Frangipani): Flower of the Day, May 12, 2017


My plumeria tree is in full bloom right now.  It is in the lower garden right next to my pool, which is raised about 5 feet above it due to the fact that my house is built on a mountain.  So, the blooms are right at eye level and above.  Perfect to enjoy this lovely stage of growth.

Now, go see Cee’s tulip.  Spectacular!!!

Bougainvillea, Flower of the Day, May 2, 2017

I saw this extravagently hued bougainvillea outside a cafe/gallery where we saw the work of a talented young Guadalajaran artist. Rich colors inside and out.

The sign on this gallery/restaurant in San Antonio Tlaquepan said “Mui Rico.” It suited both the flowers outside as well as the cuisine and rich colors of the art display inside.
