I had a very busy week and almost didn’t get out and about to get some flower pictures for our Friday Flower Fiesta. Have no fear, though. I did.
Memorial Day weekend is when I celebrate one of my anniversaries. I have four:
May 26, 1994 — The day we met
July 1, 1995 — The day we started shacking up together
July 31, 2004 — The day we got civil unionized
October 30, 2008 — The day we got married (we did it in California because marriage was legal at the time)
I’m very much a romantic, although Jim would way a devious romantic. I have a full weekend of activities planned for our 18th anniversary of meeting.
We started our anniversary weekend with a great meal at Costa Azul on Coronado Island, home to Coronado Beach, named today as the #1 beach in America. I chose Coronado because the Island is always full of beautiful flowers, flowers that love the cooler temperatures and higher humidity that we don’t have on the mainland.
Without further addoo (that’s Texan for adiuex), today’s Friday Flower Fiesta:
Pictures 12 & 13 of the hibiscus is the most unusual stigma and style that I’ve ever seen on a hibiscus.
Folks who have been following me for a while know that I’ve been on a quest for 34 years to find the perfect Bird of Paradise (Picture 14). That’s not it. Probably #3 in my collection. I like it a lot because the background is water. Rarely do I find a Bird of Paradise growing so close to the water that some of the blossoms are hanging over the water.
