Week 45 – #35. Starts With A “C”

What could be more appropriate for something which “starts with a ‘c” than a cactus?  The aloe plant is a member of the cactus family.  Your mom was onto something when she snipped off the tip of an aloe leaf and squeezed the gel onto your sunburn or cut. The plant has been shown in studies to help heal minor wounds eight days faster than standard dressing.35 Starts with a c _MNH7621

Week 38 – #3. Backlit

When we relocated to Sarasota in 2001, one of the first things I did was purchase a small staghorn fern and secured it to the crotch of my shady live oak tree at the corner of the driveway. Despite the fact that I pay no attention to it other than toss it a banana peel on occasion, it has thrived and is now a very large, beautiful fern, thanks to the humidity we have here in Florida and the afternoon showers. As I pulled into the driveway early one morning, following a trip to Starbucks ;-), I noticed how its fronds were backlit by the bright morning sun.
