Nice to meet you, tall George! you are very right, Naomi: Nature. Nothing like it! thanks for the pics (careful with ladders!) and now I am only missing to greet and meet your new site design *wink*
I hope your Mother's Day was nice as well. That is some cactus ! Did you watch the last episode of The West Wing last night? What did you think?
I know my prior comment is awaiting moderation, I am just showing off my avatar this time, which I meant to do ages ago. Only had it for haloscan comments, now you can see my cup here too ! :)
George reminds me of Larry from Veggie Tales. Of course, Larry is a cucumber not a cactus, but they're both tall, green, and handsome :o)
Fantastic shots! You really have talent in photography.
Have a great week ahead.
Naomi....how symbolic for George to give birth on Mother's Day for you. Thank you so much for sharing this awesome process with us. I enjoyed it so much.
Nature is indeed mystifying and the process of this flower just reminds me of the saying...."Everything in it's OWN time."
I love that you have been taking these progress photos. It's fun to really watch and pay such close attention isn't it? :)
ok..how the heck did you get that high for the picture??? ladder?? or is that wall a whole lot shorter then it looks? lol..
I'm glad you finally got to see George's flower!!
George is very interesting! Amazing how these things of nature work isn't it?
You be VERY careful up on a ladder Naomi! We don't want any accidents, okay???
Thanks for another great post and sharing nature's beauty with it. It's so interesting!
Way to go, George! :)
George is quite handsome!! Great photos Naomi, but standing on a tall ladder....you had me worried!!
You be careful, I don't want to hear you have hurt yourself getting these great pictures!
As always, a pleasure visiting you! Now I can't wait to see your new design!
I hope you also enjoyed a wonderful weekend. Keeping on eye on George seems like it was at least a full-time job.
I thought, as I read your account what an incredible teacher you would have been. Is it possible you ever taught?
You and The Silver Fox Maria never cease to interest and inform. And of course being beautiful couldn't hurt either of you in the classroom! I wish I'd had teachers like you.
Have a super week and yes, watch those ladders!
BTW. I'm anxious to see your site's new look. I'm dying to change mine as well.
A very handsome man
I was looking forward to your new template I will check back
That was nice of you to show us George. He is tall. You mean those pictures you just showed are all attached to that George? Very nice.
I can take care of cacti! I can. I swear it.
Love the new template by the way. :)
OH MY GAWD!!!.. your new look is beautiful Naomi!!! Congratulations on the great look!!!
IT LOOKS GREAT!
Oh My Gosh Naomi!!!!! If I didn't have to sit to type I'd be jumping up & down! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this design. It is 100% totally YOU! Absolutely ravishing!
I'm with you. I'm all about those quiet Sundays, particularly in the morning. No one headed out for work, no one rush, rush, rushing around. Calm and quiet. I love it.
LOVE, LOVE your new template, dear Naomi! Absolutely wonderful! The gorgeous flower at the banner, the green colour, all are BEAUTIFUL!!
And your pictures are stunning, fantastic! Congratulations!
I LOVE the new template, Naomi, so lush and green and growing, just like George and your other cacti!
How nice of him to flower on Mother's Day, and how interesting to see the progression of the flowers, even if they are not spectacular.
Re: my post...The hot oil massage would have cost (without the gift card) $85 and then a tip of $13-15. I suppose I could afford it more often, but I am not used to treating myself that well....LOL
Do you suppose George should be called "Georgette"? Tell him I said this with the utmost respect. Hope you and Sweetie had a good day. My kitties sent me a card (with the help of my Nyssa) and it was very adorable.
Love the new layout, what are those unique green flowers called?
wonderful design, it is just elegant, delicate, clear, absolutely a delight to the eye!!!congratulations on your new perfect look! and how nice that now I always know what the time is in CA!
Well look at you Aunty all green and lush and fresh looking !
I love it :)
BTW I just read the sign next to George ummm does that mean if we show up unannounced men with guns will come and surround us ?
I promise to call ahead LOL
I LOVE the new look OOLofH! I thought George might be a cactus pear at first but then you zoomed out and whoa, George is one phallic cacti.
What a fun group of photos! Nature is an amazing thing. I wish we could have some George out here, in the mid-west.
Thanks for the George-tale. I will await more great shots and stories to boot.
hope you had a nice mother's day :)
Love the new look!!!
Love your new design, Naomi. It was well worth the wait.
Nice and light and spring-like. Good choice.
I haven't been here since you fixed up the joint, and man, is it awesome! I love it! Thanks for all your kind words here lately (and always) You know you're my favorite, right?!
