I love pink, and I thought yellow was my favorite, and the other day, as if someone else was saying it, I say,"Turquoise is my favorite?" Now who said that?

The little bud behnd the open flower looks like a delicate rose.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyGreg Finnegan8:45 PMIf these were steel I'd know. I produced the play and built the set on the stage in New Jersey. The movie starred Dolly Parton, Sally Field, Shirley MacLaine, Daryl Hannah, Olympia Dukakis, Julia Roberts, Tom Skerritt, Sam Shephard et.al. Might be wrong, but there are 210 species and this looks like a few of them. Played a little joke on one of our favorite players. Put some vaseline on the earpiece of the stage telephone on Weezer's beauty parlor counter, and printed a small card which was revealed when the player lifted the phone and put it to her ear during the scene. It said "Wet Paint".ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyGreg Finnegan8:50 PMOops. Truvy's counter.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyCarver8:56 PMSandy I'd have to see more of the leaves to venture a guess and even then I'm not sure I could I.D. it but it's lovely.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyCarver8:57 PMSandy the more I think about it the more I think it may be nerium oleander. You can go here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nerium_oleander and see what you think. There are oleanders that don't look anything like this but it does look like that one to me.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplynonizamboni9:07 PMSuch a nice tribute to April, Easter and spring.
