This beauty is said to only bloom at midnight. A very dear friend of mine gave me a cutting of this plant and I as so thankful to her. She warned me that it only bloomed late
at night. So this year it is loaded with flowers and I just had to sneak out that at 4:30 this morning before I went for my morning walk and grab a peek. I was so excited when I saw this wonderful flower. Yes, of course I had to pick one of the blooms and take snapshots to share with y’all.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a blessed day .

I took this photo of the setting sun on a cruise to Cancun a few years back. There were so many beautiful sunsets and sunrises and that water was the prettiest blue.
Next the water with waves from the ship.
Thanks for stopping by.

Looking out at the back of my back yard on a misty morning.
Coquina is our favorite Beach on the Gulf of Mexico in Florida. We also love to visit the Atlantic on the East Coast of Florida. On Coquina there isn’t many large shells but the beauty of the water makes up for the lack of shells.
Thank you for stopping by and God bless.
The Photo Challenge this week wanted details. This mushroom was growing in my yard a while back and I was blessed to get a photo of it. I have no idea what kind it is but I love the detail and how it looks like a mound of meringue.
Thanks for stopping by and happy posting to you. God bless.
I took this photo while in Texas recently and thought it would be good for “Street” entry. I know it is my second one but I wanted to share.
For Developing Your Eye post “Water.”
It began with an idea and a dream; start a family, build a house and barn and turn them in to a home. The babies came one by one and what was once boards and nails became a home filled with laughter and yes, some tears. Then the children grew up. They left for college or distance jobs. Their life journeys no longer needed the small frame house and old barn. It was forgotten and left to end its journey in neglect and disrepair.
Every thing has a different conception of home.
To a honey bee this hive was home. A storm came through our yard a few weeks back and blew a huge limb off one of our trees. I knew bees did live there for almost a year but for some reason they left. However, I was both surprised and grateful to see this hive. Surprised because before this I had never seen inside a beehive in nature. And grateful that the bees had decided to travel on because I worried they might attack my six-year-old grandson
For a few days one summer this cabin in North Carolina was our home. It looks rustic but it had all the real comforts of home.
So…while our homes differ in style and how we conceive them all creatures have something they call home.
