Once a year (and I am assuming this is the time of year) these Bromeliads in my backyard sprout spectacular blooms.
They are very waxy and seem like they would last forever, but alas, they only stick around for about a week.
They have a very ugly death which I will spare you, but wanted to share them at their peak. They are always a surprise to me when they show up. (The soft focus is due to very humid and hot conditions that my camera did not like)
Speaking of surprises.... look who showed up at my house to help me wrestle with some burlap that we are making into table-toppers for (the wedding). That's me whispering because I vowed I would do a post without mentioning IT.
But when my very own guardian angel showed up, complete with wings, I knew I'd have to post this picture.
Everyone have a great weekend.
