I'm a free spirited aging hippie
who loves talking to flowers, chasing rainbows
and photographing all the beauty that surrounds us
Thanks for taking a peek into my little world

Friday, May 17

Hummingbird Sports Bar

The little hummers love
this trumpet wildflower
Blooming profusely
in our woodlands
My Random 5 for Friday:
1) My seriously unruly curly hair
nearly got cut off. Sweet hubby said he liked my mop
so I walked away from the scissors
for now...
2) I love my coffee freshly ground
hot black and strong
3) I use a whole bean mix of
  French vanilla, hazelnut cream and double chocolate
4) As I grabbed my towel 
a gigantic huge monster spider
ran out and off across the bathroom floor
5) I seriously freaked out
so much so I swallowed my mouthwash
Sharing with Nancy's Random Friday 5

Your 5 facts always make me laugh Laura! That's a lovely honeysuckle you've captured.

Mel said...

*laughing* Poor spider was more afraid of you, I'd wager.

Lovely shot of a lovely flower--which reminds me that I need to put out the hummer's feeder.
What fun you have on Fridays! Welcome to your weekend!

You'd like our coffee, I love this flowers colour-we don't have Hummingbirds here but a little creature who immitates them, the Sphinx Moth...beautiful photo

Lovely photo! I'd have freaked out at the spider, too. I had to laugh at the mouthwash response. :-) I love my coffee black, too, and strong enough to stand a spoon up in it.

Cindy P said...

Beautiful flowers!! I've seen a few hummingbirds around this year already!

And I shared a huge spider in the bathroom story on my random 5 today, too! I HATE spiders! Ick!

Super Enjoy every bit of your Five today!!!

(the spider would have freaked me out - then turned into a story for my small friends on Wednesday Mornings . . . only swallowing mouth wash?? You are BRAVE!!!!!)


Deb said...

not too scared of spiders...but a rodent or a rat...now I would have swallowed more that the mouth wash...lol...

Bruce Clark said...

Great colors in your photo!

I am just seeing you with the spider. Those things scare me, too. Luckily I have never swallowed mouth wash or anything else when I've seen one.
