  3. I love Compos mentis, the colour, the angle, the shapes, perfect! All are lovely, but that's the favorite of the day for me.:)

  5. Brilliant!

    I love 'Rorschach' and 'my house' particularly. The light on 'a maize' is lovely.

  6. The "peaceful afternoon" looks so inviting with the archway, stepping stones and water. And, I love all the ones with what looks like Lily of the Nile (Agapanthus) because it reminds me of California where I grew up.

  7. Ant's view is very much eye opening! Love every pixel of your pictures - the colors are exactly the way they are embossed in my brain - the way colors have to be - wish I can color like that! Your house look like Adam's fammily one on that picture :)

  10. Hey it that a Desert Rose in 'complicity'? I have not seen one planted on ground before. Very beautiful... blooms all over. Btw, is that Angelina's nose at the background?

  14. The archway photo is so beautiful! I like Ant's view and orange crush too. But complicity had me gasping! I've never seen an adenium with that many blooms. How long will that take for my tiny plants to grow like that?! I'm wondering.... A pleasure to view your amazing photos.

  15. Steph and Kanak: you both correctly identified the Adenium (Adenium obesum). It's getting huge. I grew it from seed, too. The plant is about 10 years old.

    They will get much bigger planted in the ground than they will in a small pot. The secret is that they like peat moss (a little surprising for a succulent). And I never use organic fertilizer on anything.

    Since I'm in a frost-free area, I like to grow everything outside. Even my Lithops, and Venus flytraps.

    And, yes - that's Angelina's little nose in "nose."

  26. Wonderful series of photos! It’s beautiful the way you see and feel your surrounding; whether it is lovely flowers and its colours, lovely deep blue sky and a bird flying in the air or a sparrow that enjoy the view from the building …Thanks for sharing all those beautiful moments with us and that beautiful peaceful afternoon.

  38. Hi....

    This is Barbara...Diego's Mom. Sorry it's taken me awhile to answer your post on my Eastsideviews blog. I've been doing the driftwood art for about 5 years. The pieces do take a long time to finish but as you see by the pictures, they are well woeth the time.
