A Beautiful Pair

Good Morning!!!!!!!!!!

How are you all today?

Bright eyed and bushy tailed I hope.

Yesterday this was the veiw from my front gates at about 6.00 am.


Today this was the veiw at 7.00 am.


See the clouds we have had a lot of those just lately.

Anyway now for the beauties. For the last three times that this has flowered I have missed getting a picture, but today, I got them. Yay!


They open and die in just a day.


You can just see the cactus plant at the bottom of this picture. This plant puts a tremendous amount of energy in producing these large flowers and they are so delicate.


They have  a very fine perfume which attracted this wasp. Think he enjoyed his visit. He looked like he was anyway.

Yesterday I went to the beach with Jude and we had a lovely time splashing about in the sea. The beach was crowded as it was a very hot day, but there was a nice cooling breeze. Wonder how many people overdid the sunbathing?

Anyway enjoy your day whatever you are doing and catch you all again soon.

I love your optimism! YES, it is a beautiful day! What beautiful views and flowers.

We are off on another road trip. Of course, my blog runs behind a few days because we are always running. ;)))

The flowers are extraordinary! You sound like you enjoyed your day at the beach.
Our August has mostly been wet and cool - typical really. I don't know why we expect anything else :-)
