This gorgeous big brut was hanging out at Disney World’s Animal World. Seeing them in the wild was definitely on “my list“. Sadly however just as I planning my trip through Africa last century, traveling to see them had been stopped. Dang it!
Animals in captivity is something that can upset me but I have to admit, Disney World seemed to be doing it well and I don’t believe I’m just saying that as it was so thrilling to see them so close…

The great advantage of living so close to the water is that you never know what you’ll see when you look out one of the windows.
Sometimes it’s a fishing boat heading out to fill its nets, sometimes it’s a ferry taking passengers down to Vancouver Island, and sometimes it’s simply a digger floating by at the end of the day!
It’s hard to say if this is a white spider-mum or on seeing the green towards the centre, if this could actually be an albino spider-mum. If there is such a thing, lol.
Regardless of the answer, it’s still a very beautiful bloom!
When on holidays or simply at the beach, what does a piece or two of trash slipping out of one’s fingers matters? It matters a heck of a lot when you see what’s left behind after a cyclone’s been and gone.
It had been such a long time since I’d done any mixed media work when creating the mother’s day gift for my mother, that I had to completely relearn what glue held which texture the best.
Needless to say it was an extremely steep learning curve with just one or three challenges, lol. Glue is this week’s One Word Photo Challenge Word from Jennifer Nichole Wells.
Maybe the end of the school year is getting to me but when I looked at the new growth on the tree outside my kitchen window there appeared to be Christmas decorations growing on the tree!
It was all I could do to stop myself from grabbing a paint-can to spray a little silver here and there over the tree, adding a ribbon or two then sprinkling a little glitter. Oh Christmas Tree!
