I post on Monday with an occasional random blog thrown in for good measure. I do my best to answer all comments via email and visit around on the days I post.

Colors of the Virgin Islands - Flowering Plants - Part Two

As of yesterday I am 13, 473 words into NaNo!

And here is some eye candy.

Flamboyant.

Close up.
Night Blooming Ceres, a vining cactus.

Yellow hibiscus

Avocados and peppers at Gladys's Restaurant. A favorite place to eat. I always get her pan-fried old wife (a fish) or her curried goat. Note breadfruit by the peppers.

Bougainvillea and yellow alamanda.

Bulburgis. And I'm probably not spelling it right! It looks like a fireworks display.

  1. Gorgeous, thanks. I used to have a night blooming ceres and I loved the surprise when you'd walk out and see it had burst open.
    Your NaNo numbers have me in total awe. You must be channeling those characters and they must be loving you! Can't wait to hear what this story is about when you are ready to spill.
