Today was warm and sunny, this lovely creature got
stuck between the sliding glass door and screen door.
I left around noon and thought he would find his way
out enventually as there is plenty of room for escape.
Meanwhile the temperature dropped twenty degrees
and became stormy. When I returned, this little guy
was two inches from freedom at the edge of the screen
but because of the temperature had hunkered down til
at least morning. Heís very big and not average looking
at all.... any ideas?

Looks to me like an aerial view of a river system.
Then again, our road surface is cracking up in a similar way.

You’re right, it does look like a river system....
a deforested, barren landscape. While in Puerto Rico,
A visit to the southern part of the island, we
weaved through big hills for miles, dark grey, almost
black... barren, with no vegetation, nothing! Stripped
away and now dead... most likey for profit....yea, that
kinda looks like it.
It was taken in a parking lot last night. What caught
my eye looked to me like a male profile holding a pig.
Crazy huh?

Lychee

A French study published in the Journal of Nutrition found that lychee has the second-highest level of heart-healthy polyphenols of all fruits tested - nearly 15% more than the amount found in grapes (cited by many as polyphenol powerhouses). The compounds may also play an important role in the prevention of degenerative diseases such as cancer. Serve by peeling or breaking the outer covering just below the stem; use a knife to remove the black pit. Add to stir-fries or skewer onto chicken kebabs to add a sweet, grapelike flavor.

Wow, so that’s a lychee. I absolutely love the color of
the skin and spines. It’s a pearl of a fruit!!
Have you tried one?

Rambutan is the name of the Malayan fruit
I posted earlier. Same method of eating as the lychee.
No sharp knife today but will let you know tomorrow
how it tastes. I’ve been told sweet... or tart...go figure.
Thanks UnderdOg.

I just thought it was a coincidence that it was on my feed. One of 50 most nutritious foods.
My problem with new foods is that you can't be sure if the one you get is a good one.
What if the first watermelon you ever taste is a bad example of watermelon.
Try to find someone that has had one before.
I can't eat bad cantaloupe.

These are the Puerto Rican version, can’t remember
the name but eating method is the same...soft & sweet
to the right are the seeds

The Rambutan: a soft white outer flesh, sweet tasting
I’ve had Japanese candy that tasted very similar.

In addition, marigold is used topically in order to:


reduce diaper rash and protect sensitive skin.
decrease the appearance of discoloration due to scarring.
reduce unsightly varicose veins.
treat swollen bug bites.
treat burns.
reduce dermatitis and eczema.
reduce bruises.
heal infected cuts.


In the garden they repel aphids, Japanese beetles and tomato worms
They also provide vitamin A because it has carotene.

Two reasons I shot this series, one, I was wearing the
same color that day and two, I thought it too early for
Goldenrod to bloom.

You should enter that into a Whazzit Challenge where you show a segment of a photograph and people try to guess what it is.

Here's an idea. Turn it into bathroom wallpaper and wait until it sells to reveal what it is.

These images were created by an artist I met and sat
next to at an event last nite, Adriana Poterash.
Her exhibit was showing not far away, so afterwards,
I took a look....and was delighted, surprized, saddened
and even distressed, as somee of her work reflects
atrocities in the Ukraine we Americans may not be aware
of, me in particular. These, are none of those.
Hope you enjoy!
