Larry lounges on a lemon

August 15, 2012

Yes, I am still blogging.  Life is just busy and I need a little inspiration.   In the meantime, I had to post this picture of Larry on my lemon tree.

No, I haven’t been drinking—it’s a Meyer lemon, and it won’t be ripe until this fall. Enjoy.  I promise to be back next week with a recount of Blogher.

xoxo, Jenny

Larry, the lounge lizard

 He’s such a ham–he’s even posing.

A baby heron

That’s a baby heron hanging out on the little Bean’s club house.
Yes, we have a club house.  That’s another post.
My zinnias

My flowers.  One of the reasons I haven’t been blogging.

Wouldn’t life be grand if you could have blooms like this all year round?

My cherub

 More fauna–a wee cherub.

You just reminded me that I need to get on my BlogHer wrap up post but i’ve been a wee bit busy and frankly, haven’t cared enough to do it. Love your flowers, I wish I could plant some but I live in Satan’s butt crack (Phoenix) so we don’t have flowers here. We have sadness and cactus…and sand. Lots and lots of sand.

Nicole! OMG! I just snorted iced tea.

Aren’t they angels when they are sleeping? 😉

We have herons around here that are gorgeous. I guess I’d never seen a baby one. Maybe not quite as gorgeous. Kinda has that long gangly thing going on. 🙂

No, bless his heart, he’s an ugly duckling. Maybe he’ll grow into his looks. One of the neighbors said that they are Yellow Crowned Night Herons, but he doesn’t look Google says he should, although maybe he is a she. They come to our neighborhood ever year to nest. You know they’ve arrived when the road looks like someone’s been throwing white paint balls.

Is that the infamous lemon tree that was dragged from one place to another?
We have herons that fly over the house and they look like freakin’ pterodactyls! Them and the Kingfishers! Those lanky legs and big long beaks! Wide wing spans…..scary stuff!
Zinnias are SO pretty! yes, I wish they could bloom all season!
I’m glad your enjoying your summer with the kids and your Bean Clan!
Club house? Tell us more!

I wish I could grow flowers…especially when I see beautiful pictures of the ones people like you have. But I have whatever is opposite of a green thumb. Yes, it’s true. I’m like a notorious plant/flower murderer. If FTD had a ‘Most Wanted’ wall, I’d be on it.

My daughter takes after me, too. Our most recent victims were a couple of Day Lilies. Within a week, they looked like something you might see in Satan’s butt crack… 🙂

I like to keep up with a family of geckos that crawls across my bathroom window periodically 🙂 They’re just so cute!

You were at BlogHer?…sigh…Now that totally bums me out to know I missed out on a chance to hug you. I’m hoping to make the BlogHer in Chicago next year, if my friend’s wedding doesn’t land on the same weekend, which with my luck it totally will be…sigh…
Your BBFF,
Sandra
