Eye Candy Friday

Since I have no photos of knitting to show you (Clapotis is growing, but you can't have daily progress photos and expect to keep people interested), here are some of the amazements of my lame, potted garden this October.

A gardenia:


Epidendrum (an orchid; my grandmother refers to it as ' the weed' because it grows so well in her garden despite abuse):


Hydrangea (from a potted plant that was a party favor at an award ceremony earlier this year for my other, now-departed grandmother — I'm particularly pleased that it's survived):


And still a few frangipani blossoms!

Oh, I so miss living in a warmer, somewhat tropical climate at times! My childhood-spent in Panama-has given me a love of orchids and those lush, lovely, incredibly wonderful smelly flowers that you get to grow in San Diego.

Thank you, a very nice ECF!

Those are all beautiful photos, what kind of camera are you using, Miss Photographer?

And if I can get away posting goats every day, you can do Clapotis.

Thank you for posting these most amazing pics! It's a very grey and gloomy day over here today, so seeing this colorful beauty on your page definitely cheered me up! ;)
