Pondering Stuff

Purple Trumpet - Nightshade 
Our yard is full of brilliant colors and loving the rain we had the last two nights and I am pondering stuff.

Kings Mantle
 If I go to the store with bed head hair and no makeup, I see 3 people I know. If I am dressed and ready to meet someone, I can go to 5 stores and not meet a soul.

    Where do those green tree frogs go when there is no rain? We just had 2 days of rain and they have been harmonizing for 2 days.  Our last rain was 2 months ago, so where have they been?
Staghorn

Why will some people not fly in a plane and others will jump out of one?

Why does one person use a tub only and another just the shower?




 Oregano taste awful to me, but others love it. 

Onions are a no no for me others eat them in everything.

Moss rose

One loves roses the other dandelions.

One loves TV the other can’t stand to watch it.

He loves documentary’s and She loves stories

I am thinking there is no answer to my ponderings, what think ye? I think the answer is it just IS this way and really doesn't matter and go ahead ask me why I ponder these things? JUST BECAUSE

That...is a good reason!!! LOL...
I'm up...I'm sleepy but I' out of bed.
You are right: when I do make up and dress nice...i meet nobody: If I go out "in a mess" I meet 3 , 4, 5...person that know me!

Well...what to say about the photos? Magnificent, gorgeous....

SO true!! No rhyme or reason!
It IS what it IS......or so they say!

Great post!

You have outdone yourselves with these photos, Sandra. For sure, I meet more folks I know if I try to sneak out without cleaning up!!!

Betty Manousos said...

everyone has their own preferences..

beautiful flowers and your header is lovely, too.

Why does one person ponder while another does not? ;) You're right, we're all different and life is full of mysteries!!! In the winter season (yeah, basically we're still in it) I don't have to bother much about how I dress to go shopping, except the top layer of coat and hat!

Love your header photo!
You do have some beautiful colors in your yard. The purple trumpet is gorgeous.

Good questions. If we all had the same likes and dislikes everything would be so boring.

You sound like me, toooo much going on in the head. lol
I astound my husband sometime with things I am thinking about.
He's the type that can just put his head back and drop off, me...I can't get to sleep with all the rubbish going on in my head. lol

I "ponder" things, too. I can't help myself. Sandra.....I just adore your purple trumpet. It is heavenly. Your header caught me by surprise, too......great capture of a beautiful butterfly.

Great post, again!

Remington said...

Oh yes....I ponder the same questions, my friend....I guess it's just the way it is....love your pics!

I love the purple trumpet Nightshade.

Madi and Mom said...

Thank you for your kind comments about my Grandpa Peep.
Mom hopes to be able to visit my friends in the very early morning and in the afternoon.

Your garden and your flowers are beautiful. MOL at the thought provoking questions. Mom says she sees no need to jump out of a perfectly good airplane and she only takes showers.
Hugs Madi

TexWisGirl said...

Beautiful photos.

But... 2nd photo... Kings Mantle... Is that Deadly Night Shade? Which is poisonous.

Dang thing tried to grow around our pool area. Looked so pretty. Then I read that it is very, very dangerous.

He dug/pulled it out and it had spread like mad! Yikes and wow.

Just wondering...

It’s one thing to be an individual;
but it’s another thing to be an individual
at the cost of the people around you.

I sit and ponder stuff, too...like how come if I smell and onion I am instantly hungry and other people cannot stand them...honest to goodness that is true. My son-n-law does not like onions at all and I just cannot eat some stuff without them....

and then there is Roger--he just always has a positive outlook and I am not guite a gloomy gus but close to it.

Some people don't mind getting up in front of people and talking and I just die...

Chatty Crone said...

You are pondering some great things over beautiful flowers. And the same goes for me - why if I have no make-up on will I always run into someone I know? Love the flowers. sandie

Great garden photos! I'm getting more and more low maintenance every day and if I get any more low maintenance, I won't be showering anymore.

Ginny said...

I am pondering how gorgeous this Purple trumpet is!! Now try and say that real fast five times!!! Your header is AMAZING!!!!! The same with me about the trips to the store. Looking your worst attracts the whole world! Looking great no one shows up. If I wear my slippers to the grocery store, an old stained top, and hair sticking out, the whole church will show up buying supplies for a meal.

With gorgeous photos like that, who needs to ponder about stuff. I guess being different is a good thing. I have been busy with the A to Z and not visited here for awhile, but I have been thinking of you. I wanted to let you know that Soldier is doing OK with this new pain medicine they have now. It doesn't have the side-effects of the older stuff, like Rimadyl and he can take several as needed. For now I give him just one at night and it works great. And we are walking again.

Ann said...

I like your pondering and I think you are right about the answer, it just is.
Love all the shots too. those trumpet flowers are gorgeous.

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

Deb said...

Just because you can..I love that about you Sandra...beautiful photos...

Snapper II said...

We will pray that all goes well with Baby. Love, P & M
