Mellow Yellow Monday #7

Every May in the city of Huntington Beach is a fund raiser known as the Duckathon.  People purchase decorated ‘ducks’ that are gathered up and dropped into the ocean for a ‘race to the shore’ … winning donated prizes.  Here are photos I captured with my Casio Exilim in 2004.

Macro Monday #5
but I’ve lost count on Today’s Flowers.


If anyone recognizes these blossoms, I’d appreciate knowing what they are.  All I know is they’re bulbs that come up each year in my yard dependably.  Addendum:  Thanks to Patty of Magpie’s Nest for identifying these blossoms as Freesia, and to Eaton Bennett of Silently Mine for confirming the identification.

Thought for Today
“After all, I don’t see why I am always asking for private, individual, selfish miracles when every year there are mireacles like white dogwood.”  Anne Morrow Lindbergh
