Saturday Morning

It's Saturday morning and I should be cleaning up the kitchen, but I thought I'd do a quick post instead.  Mac took some pictures of my new plants, he has one more to pot---a Texas Lilac---we were looking for a Buddleia, but they didn't have any.  He also took so photos of our neighborhood alligator, he is growing quickly.

Isn't he a handsome young alligator



Zinnias

Gardenias

Ginger Lilies

  2. Good morning to you🌞 and thank you for visiting our blog and leaving a comment about our cross country trip. We are always happy to meet new fellow bloggers. I have just spent some time reading many of your posts as it’s nice to get to know others. A close friend has also undergone cancer treatment and her happiest day was the last one as well. So sad to read that Mac’s family lost their home in the CA fires. We have been seeing the residual smoke effects during our travels. I am a fan of Acorn TV straming, but have thought of adding BritBox and would be interested in hearing how you like it. I agree that a neighborhood alligator sounds a bit unusual, but then you live in a southrn state. We lived in VA on the eastern shore for 12 years prior to our move to NH and there were none there.

    1. You can keep those alligators in Savannah! I wonder, do they say "See you later, alligator" and "After while, crocodile" in other countries? These are the kind of things I think about. LOL!
      Your flowers are lovely on your deck and just that corner of the pool looks very inviting to me! xx

  3. Our daughter and family are in California for two weeks.They had four nights in San Francisco and had planned on four nights at Y osemite but it is closed until Tuesday!!!!They have moved on to Monterey but will be disappointed to miss Yosemite.It is a holiday of a life time so they won't get the chance again.C'est la vie.Loads of people have lost homes and possessions so missing his part of the trip is no big deal in the whole scale

  6. Just how close a neighbor is this young alligator? :) He really is cute and he has a young, baby looking face. Is he close enough to visit your yard? Your flowers are pretty. I've never heard of ginger lilies.

  7. Seeing your neighborhood gator is a bit scary! So happy to read your post and see that you are up and about enjoying the summer. We've had smoke filled skies this week due to the wildfire but today is much better. Pat xx

  8. Cool alligator! My uncle had one behind his house in Florida. You could sit safely inside his screened-in pool area and watch him swim by!

  12. I expect you get used to an alligator gliding by. Great shots of it although I wouldn't want to get too close! Your plants on the decking look pretty.

  13. My goodness not sure I would be happy with it living so close, a little too close for my liking. Beautiful plants.

  14. He's an interesting creature to see don't think I'd want him so close but you must be used to them living neaby:)

  15. I like the idea of having an alligator close to home; something to study, if you know what I mean. Don't think the cat would like it, though. Your plants are gorgeous.

  16. Beautiful plants. We have alligators around here too. However, they seemed to have moved away from our part of the bayou because I don't see them very often on my walks.

  17. I am not interested with alligators. Beautiful flowers:)

  18. I was listening to a radio program the other day about alligators... They were singing! They were part of a research project trying to figure out how dinosaurs may have sounded. Apparently (according to this program) alligators, just like dinosaurs, can in some respects be compared to birds... Also very clever, they said, and surprisingly agile. (Comparing alligators and birds still not the first thing that comes to mind for me, I have to admit. But intriguing all the same...)

  19. Wow! I wouldn't mind getting some photos of that - don't think I will around this way.

  20. Beautiful flowers! Just remember, young alligators become big alligators.

  21. I don't like the sound of a neighbourhood alligator. Eek!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Eeek, are they not dangerous to have around or do they keep to themselves? Buddleias are lovely but I like the sound of the Texas Lilac.

  23. The plants are great but I'll give the alligator a pass, thank you!
