Orchid cactus

I came home just now to a house filled with this intoxicating scent. I ran out to the sunroom to find my orchid cactus in full bloom. I just had to share the beauty. My camera is failing me. I can't get any good close ups.

"New project"

Maybe I'll call her "Jewel". She's my take on a burlesque dancer. I found this really cool shell crustation at What Cheer flea market, i thought it would look cool on something. I found that something. It fits perfectly on the back of the head. I'm going to try and use alot of costume jewelry mixed with shells and glass tiles and beads. The more gaudy the better.

Begonias everywhere

I know, i have been an absentee blogger. What can i say. I have started a new art project. That will be another post. I have started working out at the big new fancy "Wellness center" at the university. I've been going 3 times a week. My 1st time on the elliptical machine i couldn't walk for 3 days. I was on it for 15 min. Am i out of shape or what? It's going better now.
I've been trying to get ahead of all the weeding! They seem to pull out easier when they are knee or hip high. I can get a better grip. We have filled 2 pick-up loads.
Then the bad news. I read an email from my aunt. My sister-in-law was visiting my mom, she lives in Tennessee. Mom didn't know she was coming. When she came to the door, mom didn't recognize her. She didn't know for a while. But, eventually remembered. She lives by her self. I think it's time for some home health care. I don't want to go on about that, but, a new phase is beginning.
This time of year... the end of summer. My begonias are so big and healthy.
