Project Life: 8/9-8/14 2012 Granny Goose's birthday


we got back from vacation to THIS amazing bloom! (More about that here)

Sea Lavender

wispy little sweet purple blooms

delicate purple blooms

raspberry red-ish/purple/burgundy color 

the size of dinner plates!

camparable to the size of a 5 year old's head

toasting the Hibiscus


the girl's hair is finally long enough to play with

I kept her preoccupied and busy while I gave her some tails

I love having a girl!  with hair!  

she wanted to help

the "pose"

she was proud

Remember this pineapple?  from HERE?  Hasn't it grown?  I thought it was dead and  next thing I know, it has great new leaves sprouting up!

really pretty elephant ear type of plant that my husband brought home for me and my Mama

it's gorgeous with pink and green, some black and polka dots

This one is more of a red and green, deep colors

the 3 lonesome apples from our baby apple tree only 1 year old

tomato harvest. these little green and yellow lovelies are low in acid and juice and I just adore them!

okra harvest

onion harvest

cantelope harvest

Sugar Baby Melons

These little ladies were in the base of the pretty Elephant ear plant and they are called "Mother of Thousands"  They multiply like crazy and I *think* they are in the succulent family

this is a peeled open passion flower after we deemed the blossom to be dead.  just look at that!
