I like to keep life interesting. There are few things worse than boredom. Well, that’s not true- there are tons of things worse but I still don’t like to be bored. You know, now that I’m typing this I have to say that I very rarely get bored. I have a pretty vivid imagination and even if you locked me in a padded room I would entertain myself by daydreaming. Is that awesome or pathetic? I’m going to go with awesome. And obviously I don’t need anyone else to have a conversation with either. I can ask and answer my own questions. Yep, that’s definitely awesome!
Back to the point of this post. I try to change up the header photos to keep you (and me)from getting bored. But when I take the old one down I’m sad to see it go. So I created a category where the old header photos can live forever and I can visit them whenever I want. Also I have to severely crop them to use in the header bar and here in header heaven, you can enjoy them in their full glory…
This is the view behind our home. I love, love, love cotton in bloom. Beeee-u-teeee-ful. This photo reminds me of a oil painting that would be hanging in a 1980’s style house against dark wood paneling. There’s something about it that’s sort of comforting to me.
These are spider lilies, sometimes called surprise lilies because you never know where they’re going to pop up. One day there’s absolutely nothing there and then one September day-SURPRISE a gorgeous coral-ie pinkish flower. You see them mostly along side of country roads and near old homesteads. They practically grow wild here in southeast Alabama. They divide very quickly but the bulbs are pretty pricy if you try to buy them.
This is a Mexican Sunflower. It’s so orange it’s almost fluorescent. It blooms on a tall stalk usually between 5 and 6 feet tall and has about 10-15 blooms on each stalk. It’s an annual but will usually re-seed a couple of plants in the same bed next season. It waits until late summerto put on it’s show but I look forward to it every year.
There. Now there’s a safe place for header photos to live happily ever after.
