You’re Supposed to RUN Away!

You! Not me! That’s why I’m shaking my tail at you. Don’t you get it? Standing tall like a big bear, spreading out to look bigger and more ferocious, making all this chattering noise! Aren’t you afraid? You should be!

Run away! Now! Before it’s too late. For you!

Have a great day!

Mystery Crepe Myrtle Revealed!

It’s watermelon, and they’re down by the River Otter Pond. A stork must have brought me the baby crepe myrtle.  I love watermelon, it’s so vivacious.  And with the Purple Magic Crepe Myrtles, a pretty color combination. And they’re tall, so a nice shield from looking at my backyard neighbor. My daughter is fortunate. All her backyard neighbors have one-story houses.

Two of the crepe myrtle pictures are of the ones out front. Two lighter ones are of the one out back. Really different color of purple, but all pretty.  And I caught the peach roses in a bundle. I hadn’t seen them in a bouquet like that before.

Okay, have to write 9 blogs for SEAL Undercover release (August)–5 done yesterday, edits on Night of the Wolf (the novella I wrote for the 10th anniversary of Heart of the Wolf release, January), Cougar Undercover edits, and yes, I’ve had to put Falcon Fae aside for a moment.

But the other books are due the first week in July and the blogs too. We’re getting rain, light, a little wind last night, but it’s very calm. Hopefully, that’s all we’ll get and nothing major coming up from the tropical storm.

Have a great day!! I’ve got to get to working!!!

Night Skies

 

Tropical Storm Warning in effect.

Batten down the hatches. Hope we get some rain, no flooding, no high winds. Just some rain. And cooler temperatures. That’s it.

Running errands today because tomorrow, it’s supposed to be pouring. Maybe even this afternoon.

Stay safe if you’re in affected areas!!

Back to the Writing Cave

This week, I want to finish up Falcon Fae, maybe Cougar Undercover, if I get beta edits back in time, make the changes, and can set up the print version, and reread it again.

I took the photo of the polar bear. Can you tell? It has mystery to it. Cut off the top of his head? Yep. Mine.

The fae had everything to do with it. Here I had the perfect shot lined up and then they messed up my aim. Or really, I meant to do this. To make you look up and want to see the rest of him. Yep. That’s what writing is all about. Making up stories.

The second photo is a cave and mist from Story Art, Light Rays and a Bear Overlay, and Marble Overlay from Creative Market.  I was playing around with lighting and filters. I think I like the darker picture best.  What about you?

Okay, enough procrastinating. Time to get on with the business of writing.

Have a super, great day!

Macro Flowers

I was so busy trying to capture the roses without the photo blurring, I have a macro lens that constantly refocuses and so it’s hard to get a shot of what I want, but do you see the critter I captured in the one shot of the peach roses? I didn’t even see him until I was resizing photos. The other is a coneflower, I didn’t think was going to come back this year, and orange marigold, and a red rose covered in water drops.

Back to Falcon Fae! I added a prologue because I needed to show that a magic user had magic to use. Seems simple, right? That’s like a wolf shifter who shifts. I read a short story about a great white warrior wolf, except she never shifted, never showed any warrior-ing… and so I wondered, not for long, what she did to make her so super white warrior wolf like. I will never know.

Have a great one!

Seeds to Make New Babies…

Seeds from the Blanket Flower and the milkweed (that feeds Monarch butterflies and other butterflies)

And their flowers.

And this is like birthing a baby.

What color are the flowers of this unknown crepe myrtle? White? Light Pink? It’s like Christmas, and I can’t wait to see what’s inside the package. The other I bought in the store and it’s a Purple Magic crepe myrtle. 🙂 ❤

I’m not big into white flowers, but if it helps to block my view of my neighbor’s two-story windows behind me, it’s a good thing. The Purple Magic doesn’t get that tall–6-10′. Whereas other varieties will get from 15-20′. The way this other is growing so fast, I think it’s a taller variety.

Most of these were macro shots, except the one of the blanket flower. Every time I went outside to pull weeds, I’d see the blanket flower fluffy seed ball and wanted to take pictures. And then I saw the milkweed seeds and switched to the macro lens. Birds will use the fluff from the milkweed seed for nests, and humans have used the fluff to fill life jackets. Cool, eh? For me, they make fascinating pictures.

Oh, and speaking of babies, Happy Father’s Day for all those great daddies out there!

Have a great and notable day. 🙂

Mermaids and the Alligator

Alligator huge mermaids photo art exposure color stretch 900

I took the photo of the alligator, and his reflection at the Cameron Park Zoo. But what if there had been mermaids in there?

What ifs are the stuff of imagination.

Have a great “what if” day. 🙂
