Penta Flowers In Bloom

If for no other reason, I went out back looking for inspiration.

Welcome to Wilton Manors where Inspiration can be Incongruity.

It can also be a pot of penta flowers.

Whenever I'm stuck for writing material, I grab the camera.  Either I check to see what I have on the chip and write about it, or I go out and explore. 

No matter where you live, there can be things to take pictures of.  The bleakness of a desert or a tundra can be beautiful in the right light and the right hand.

In my case, I've had flowers since I was a wee brat, so I walked out back for a bit of a snoop about.

Standing over the pot of little flowers I thought "I'll take a picture of that and post it".  With me, it's rarely simply that.  I was standing in the morning cool when I realized how different things were around here, and that's just how we like it.

My neighbor took in a roommate with a small aviary.  I've had birds since I was a teen, so I don't mind, in fact I'm amused by the chatter of a couple small parakeets arguing in the cage in the morning sun.  While listening to that, the noise started up overhead from another Cherry Headed Amazon who was coming in for breakfast in the tall palm tree in the utility easement.  Still higher, the Red Baron was flying his Red Biplane over top of my yard.

Curse You Red Baron!  Curse your morning noise breaking the peace and quiet of the parakeet's chattering and the parrot's screeching!  I said with a Meyer Lemon picked off the tree.

I guess I'll have a bit of lemonade later on when I get thirsty. 

So when life gives you Meyer Lemons, make Lemonade and have a look at your flowers.  I'm thinking I'll have mine with honey this time.

Keep Calm and Enjoy Lemonade.
