Camera Clicks – Florida Flowers

Walked around my yard today and found a few beauties still hanging in there.

From the Lady Cave: Grandchildren β£

Talk about a whole new chapter, when you become a grandparent thats a whole new level!

Regardless of the circumstances, becoming a grandparent is like nothing else. At some point, you realize all the work you put in to your children has now come full circle. I’ve said this a million times, ” Kids learn what they see” and they are about to really show you what they learned.

You know that saying “Be careful what you ask for” this, this is a perfect example! Lol You know “The Mothers Curse” oh it works!

The “Mean Mug”!
Me and my Lovie!

Camera Clicks – Queen of the Night (Epiphyllum oxypetalum)

I am SOOO excited❣ I know, it’s the little things that make me happy. Flowers have always made me happy. You put some work, a lot or a little, into a plant and they show you love by producing a pretty and sometimes super fragrant blossom such as these:

There are 14 flowers on this baby! One of the unique things about this plant is the flowers only bloom once and only at night.

So I’ve been watching these grow for a couple weeks now and thankfully my husband woke me up after midnight (😴) to tell me they were all open. I forgot to check them before I climbed into bed.

There were so many blooming that you could smell the light Honeysuckle fragrance. Nothing says “Florida” to me more than Orange Blossoms and Honeysuckle πŸπŸ¦‹ 🌴🌞

Camera Clicks – Flower of the Day – Plumeria

This is my first Red plumeria flower so far and as you can see from the picture there are a few more to come. It has a nice Honeysuckle smell, no wonder moths are attracted to it.

Here is what Wikipedia says about plumeria: “Plumeria flowers are most fragrant at night in order to lure sphinx moths to pollinate them. The flowers yield no nectar, however, and simply trick their pollinators. The moths inadvertently pollinate them by transferring pollen from flower to flower in their fruitless search for nectar.
