Textures and Patterns8 September , 2012
Wood-chips in one of my mom’s pot plants. You don’t get much more textured than that!
Aloe…prickly texture as you can see. This plant is a macguyver. The original mother plant was a gift to my dad yonks ago, but he could never quite decide where to plant it, so it’s still in the container it came in (we’re talking maybe 5 or more years now). Actually the original looks like it’s giving up on life now – but behold this beauty! It just kind of seeded itself from that container into one of the most inhospitable spots in the garden and it’s thriving there. I bet it will look really pretty once it blooms.
This little cactus is beyond happy where it is, it is practically covered in flowers all year long – and really all we do is ignore it.
Moss covered bark of a fiddlewood tree…a.k.a Tigger’s scratch pole. Nicola has been eyeing this tree for climbing lately.
Spring themed cupcakes that we made for Nicola’s class’ bake sale. My mom baked (Nicola and I cracked the eggs, which was good messy fun), and we all iced together. The pink terrorist is all about equal oppertunity. Fot every flower that she placed on a cupcake, she made sure that she placed one in her mouth too. 😉
Next week’s theme is sound…I’m getting a bit stuck on that one, but I have a few ideas.
