" One day is spun in gold..
Another day seems red hot or icy cold..
Passing storms clear the air and change the tide..
Each day a new sun!"

Porcupine made of phone books

This is a cute porcupine magnet that I bought.It is made from recycled phone books and newspapers! :)

Baby Jade

This adorable little jade plant in the stylish pretty blue pot is going to be a beloved favorite plant for me..I hope it will thrive under my care.. Chris made me this plant's new adopted mommy by giving it to me for Mother's Day!
I am going to take more photos of baby plant tomorrow morning when there is better lighting, I am not fond of the lighting in this photo..I will also take more photographs  of baby as he grows :)

Pre Mother's Day Celebration

My sister and I went to a nursery just before meeting up with Chris for dinner..I like to walk thru this nursery to browse..I don't know the names of many of these flowers but I think they are pretty! This whole nursery is very photogenic:)Terri and I both took pics and practiced adjusting our camera settings by using the flowers and the available lighting in this nursery! After we all had dinner, we went to Hermann Park to get more photography practice.. None of my shots of the park were any good :) A very fun evening! :)

This latter part of the week/weekend was a fun one that I spent with my sister..Today, before she arrived to meet with me, I browsed the Whole Foods garden area by the entrance..We usually meet up at Whole Foods for lunch, coffee, snacks before we drive off to explore other parts of the city! I fell in love with this daisy..I love its pink color ! I decided to buy the potted daisy for the purpose of taking many many photos of it ! My sister agreed that she would adopt Ms. Daisy permanently and plant it in her herb garden..I agreed that I would bring Ms. Daisy to her after I decided that I had had my fill of it being a subject in  my photos :)

On Pins and Needles

Last Friday, the day before cinco de Mayo, was a useless day for me..I didn't leave the house, I didn't get dressed, I didn't do anything:(  I did take a pic that I was happy with though! :)
