Funky greens

The first photo is of the pool at our old house. It's having a liner replacement, and this is what a pool looks like underneath its skin. I thought it made a cool abstract.



This is the stuff that's causing all the trouble, from my son's stuffy head to, the vet thinks, my dog's scratchiness. This particular variety is oak pollen, but I think every bush and tree in town is pollinating.



And this is a funky little plant I put in last year. It's blooming now in my front yard.

What is that "funky little plant?" It looks very interesting -- and I love the yellow blooms in the center.

I love euphorbia, so I'm partial to the last picture, but the first one is really the most interesting. Thinking about what swimming pools and people look like when we're not prettied up for the public...!

I like the abstract pool shot, but like everyone else I am fasinated by the 'funky plant' that is truly a cool.

I like the abstract pool photo quite a bit.

Put me in the "Abstract Pool shot is cool" corner. But what meteor did those plants at the bottom arrive on? Hint: If you can't cut them and place them on the table, they're Kryptonian.

Wow, so that's what is under those gorgeous blue pools.

We have that pollen all over the patio...blowing in from Oak trees. I'm going to sweep today.

Love that plant...so fun!

Euphorbia? That's the last plant? It's pretty cool-looking.

The pool shot is cool but I really like that funky plant and the different shades of yellow and green. So, do you rent out your old house?

Yeah, maybe it's euphorbia....I don't really remember. Dali, we sold the house, but went over there today.

And to think we swam in that pool...
Looks better in your photo than it often did with water in it.
