Friday Flower Fiesta (9-20-13) — You’re the dummy!
I remember the first time I got lost. I had so much fun! That was about 40 years ago.
Now I try to get lost on a regular basis, at least once a week.
A couple of weeks ago I was searching for a good vantage point to take videos of trains. I left early in the morning, before the sun came up. It was dark. Dark, dark, dark. By the time I got to where I was lost, the sun was peaking above the horizon. For those of you who have never seen a sunrise, it looks something like this:

I was supposed to be down there on one of those freeways. How I got up here….

There was a nest box for birds nearby, maybe to keep the rattle snakes under control?
When I went right on in, I found flowers (you probably knew that since the title of this post is “Friday Flower Fiesta”).
As I walked through the organic garden, I found many organic fruits and vegetables. I couldn’t decide whether or not to put pictures of fruits and vegetables in a post about flowers, but then it occurred to me that the only way to get fruits and vegetables is by pollinating a flower. So the following fruits and vegetables at one time in their lives were flowers. You do the visualization….
Over in one corner of the organic garden, I saw the opportunity for a nice picture:
A peak into the canyon provided another nice picture:
I’m from the South. Spent many a day in Houston and New Orleans. That big plastic bag had me curious. Jimmy Hoffa? I went down to check it out. You guess what I found.
Not all produce makes it to the dinner table.
The last area I explored looked like this from a distance:
Intrigued, I went in for a closer look and found these things:
I asked a friend what those were. He said, Dummy, that’s corn!
I said, No, you’re the dummy. Corn looks like this:
