Song of the Kiskadee

The urchin is a little under the weather today and will not be attending school (urchin school). Perhaps the Easter holiday was a little over-celebrated or, perhaps, storm clouds in the area have disrupted the urchin's delicate sense of well being. I will watch over you, as always.

If you listen to the song of the Kiskadee and husband its cacophonous melody, soon the clouds will lift. Here are some flowers to cheer you up, my sweet, for the garden is atingle with delight and august medicine.

Phyllobolus resurgens.

Erythrina crista-galli.

Carpobrotus delisiosa.

Rhinephyllum pillansii.

Heliconia sp.


  1. your photo's are truly beautiful. Please tell me who is the urchin ? also do you write poetry ? as the way you write your blog makes me think you do, you seem to have a way with words.

  2. Lots of prettiness!! That sure made me feel better! Hope urchin is better soon too!

  3. Rhinephyllum pillansii looks like another stone. Very unique. The flowers are pretty too. Don't let the weather bothers you too much. Have a good day!

  4. Maureen, don't tell anyone, but the urchin is a four pound wonder-dog called Angelina.

  5. Well I am so glad I now know who the Urchin is. I will have to search through your blog now for a photo of Angelina !! unless you could kindly post one for me to see her.
