Another visit to the science museum of va. The exhibit consisted of plastic throw aways and how it lands on our soil from the water ways etc.. Art was constructed from tossed plastic.
looks like part of a giant whale skeleton
You see it's discarded waste of plastic bottles constructed that way
Pictures are fuzzy with my cell phone camera and not being still in the process of shooting the picture. This anemone is mostly plastic water bottles..... Everything in picture is made from discarded plastic
Ocean waves from plastic bottles etc...
closer up you can see it better.
I liked it better when we used to take a thermos and collapsible cups. I remember seeing smokers extinguish cigarettes in portable ashtrays also. My dad - I never saw him throw his in the sand. He was picky about picking up trash and cleaning up after ourselves. Yep even on the beach. I guess manners and respect for others have fallen by the wayside? Too bad.
Oh yes, Elvis siting
He was here at the Science museum in this spot where the picture was taken.
Rainy and looks like it's called for all the week ahead. I hope the snakes won't be looking for higher ground around my house. Heard to many snake bites happening within the last few days and all copperheads.
Today it's homemade potato soup I made with celery and the green on the tops I chop and put in there also, lots of flavor there. Ham bits left from Easter ham last Sunday. Half and half milk, about 3 pounds potatoes, 4 cubes boullion, and butter. I usually put in onion but didn't have but the red onion and I don't like the way it looks in soup when it's cooked so I left out.
Served a sandwich along with it... Mesquite baked slice chicken by boars head and imported Swiss cheese with lettuce , mayo and pickle with lots of pepper as you can see.
A few azaleas pictures of the giant azalea that must have been here when the house was young, and it was built in 1969.
view from porch sliding door
this the back of it and it has plenty of blooms but not as much sun hits them as it does the front.
peony blooming on the fence along with some petunias I placed in the pot. The lilac behind the fence has finished it's blooming for this year.
my window upstairs with nasturtiums
thats about it for now. now to check the creek to see how high it's risen.
Happy Saturday --- betsy
few pictures yesterday of azaleas. They open up more and more everyday.
First off my pink vase of Lilacs....
when they open - they are so beautiful!
another look at the front door
Moss and metal twirly things only grow in this planter
I like the box and azaleas together
a simple wreath this year... just colored plastic eggs glued on styrofoam
Genevieve loves flowers and will pick everyone if I let her.
Here she is with a paper plate with an arrangement of flowers, pine , cement, and what she calls cocoanuts.. they are acorns.
I think she did a good job of arranging on the plate.
