What's It Wednesday #65
Since Spring is fast approaching, I figure it's time we go "Au Natural". Relax, not an inch of clothing has been removed for this post. It's time to be in awe of nature.
My mother and I have a wonderful friend who has the privilege and honor to reside in a nature preserve. This is the time of year that I love to pay her a visit. It's not to cold and it's not to hot. The weather is just right.
Butterflies aren't the only creatures attracted to this Powder Puff Plant. I love the variety of colors they come in.
This majestic Bailey Palm is one of my absolute favorite species of palm.
Baker's racks in the garden add a very special element to the space. I love Baker's racks in my garden.
If you look closely, you will see a rather large clothes line which houses a wide variety of gorgeous orchids. I would consider putting up a clothes line just to have a place for orchids.
All of the ferns, in pots or in the ground, are absolutely gorgeous and lush.
This beautiful fox squirrel came to visit us at lunch time. This little fellow is on our endangered mammal's list.
There are a wide variety of bromeliads on the property. The ones that are blooming have stunning inflorescence.
Ever orchid in every corner of the property tells a different tale of beauty.
I lost count of the number of beautiful Staghorns that are about the place.
I never in my wildest dreams would have imagined such a beautiful rose in the middle of the Preserve.
Living in the tropics is not without its hazards. A hurricane came through one year which caused a tree to fall into one of the bathrooms of the main house. The bathroom was completely destroyed. The man of the house built this outhouse, which is still in use although the main bathroom has been fully restored. I have to admit it's not a bad place to bring in Spring...Au Natural.
What are you looking forward to this Spring?
