Snapathon...The Story


As Bob threw the ball for Jake, I wandered around staring at things in the back yard. Way in the back corner, only 3 inches from the ground, was this orange hibiscus, in Shadows and Sunlight.


I ran for the camera, dragged a chair into the bushes (old people can't bend over and hold cameras steady at the same time)



 As I looked in my  viewer, I noticed my toes were showing, this was the Trigger that Started the slightly off the wall Snapathon that is Coming Soon To a Blog near YOU...

OH OH!!!!!

Watch out!!!

Me-thinks a TOE-SNAPPING MARATHON, is coming!!! ,-)

Pretty and lonely little flower.

Do tell!!!!!!!!! WE *olden* folks can't bend and hold cam steady, both at the same time?!? I never knew that!!!!!!!<---Liar,liar pants on fire! -giggles-

Know what really makes me envious? When (younger-than-I) gals lie down on the ground, and take pics of flowers, etc. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

AND THEN GET UP AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!

Now, what are you up to?

Inger said...

Did you see the hibiscus in the picture of my mom on my street in my post yesterday? That was quite a hedge, replaced later with the bougainvillea one.

Gail said...

Love the snaps and the sandals.

Susannah said...

What a beauty! Beautiful shades of light orange. It's got the "WOW" factor for sure!

Ginny said...

This is a beautiful peach shade of hibiscus! But the next to last picture, AWESOME!!! It looks like you put a votive candle in there (which kind of gives me an idea, but it is too way out there). Can't wait to see the rest!!! Sandals look like the ones at WM, I need to get some.

What a lovely little surprise you found. That is a beautiful shade of orange and it's even better in the sunshine.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

It's a beautiful Hibiscus and your toes look pretty good to me! I get mad at myself when I see things in my photo that I really didn't see when taking the shot!

Nice find! Love that orange!!

LC said...

Did I say when you posted orange hibiscus blooms before that they remind me of orange sherbert?

Well, they still do and now my appetite for that cool treat is stirred. It triggered your snapathon. It is threatening to trigger this reader's eat-a-thon. Have a great week!
