Hide and Go Seek

A few days ago I published a photo of a poinsettia and asked you to find the little bug hiding on the flower.  A few people have mentioned not being able to find it, so here is an enlargement, a bit grainy, but hope you can see it now.  Then go back to the original photo HERE and hopefully, you’ll see it.  Let me know! He was a tiny one. I was surprised to find him there, too.

Can you see the insect on this poinsettia? You may need to click on the photo to enlarge it to see. If you still can’t see it, go HERE to see an enlargement.

Happy Birthday Bouquet: Flowers of the Day, Nov 16, 2017

Today I’m sending out a small bouquet of two flowers as two very important people in my life were born on November 16. One is with me today and another has not been with us for 16 years, so the number 16 is especially significant today.

For my reclusive best friend, another reclusive little creature in a beautiful setting.  Happy Birthday, Dux!

And, for my mother Pat, who was a fellow night owl who loved exotics and who would have loved my night view of this hibiscus, I am sure, if she’d lived to see it.

Happy Birthday, Dux and Pat.  I love you both and think of you on your day!!!!

This closeup was actually taken months ago in Mexico, but couldn’t resist using it as it goes so well with Cee’s flower of the day.

You can’t beat this combination of orange and purple.

 

You must see Cee’s flower HERE.
