Thanks Kayelle, but it's child's play compared to a few that the neighbors did. This was the best I've ever done simply because I wasn't in a hurry!

Cheryl, those "sets" are terrific! I bet there's a community theatre that would drool over Steve and his talents. *hint hint*

Had to share this photo of my Momma and Baby. "Christmas" cacti, that is. Although, right on schedule, they are once again "Halloween" cacti. One of these days they might live up to their names...

Beautiful, CG. I'm terrible with houseplants. That reminds me - I need to bring my new succulents in!

So pretty! My Christmas cactus also didn't get the memo for many years, blooming beautifully at Halloween, but now it seems to be back to Christmas. Or at least Thanksgiving.

Thank you ladies! I have only a couple of plants, but I'm lucky they all are healthy. Good Lord knows I have little to do with that!

GG, those are some neat looking succulents. Like the planter they're in too.

I used to be one of those ladies who had a jungle in her home. Now I am lucky if I can grow green mold. I get no sunshine at all in this apartment. And very little light. So now I don't even try.

On orders from K-Girl to post some vacay pics, I thought I'd set a goal of one picture for each day we're gone. Weather permitting, since there isn't much to photograph inside our resort unit.

This is the public beach and park area at the top of Estero Island at Bodwitch Point. It's 4.5 miles from our resort. I took the shot right around the last of sunset/dusk.

Great picture.

When I was little, think John Deere B, everything we owned was painted John Deere yellow and green!
