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.

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!

Sky Blue––Thunbergia Grandiflora: Flower of the Day, May 21, 2017

Just try to convince me that this thunbergia isn’t sky blue! The first photo is of a thunbergia flower on the vine near my studio.  The second is a mistake shot I took of the sky seconds later.  I was amazed at how the colors matched!
