Flower of the Day: March 25, 2019.

These bright flowers remind me of crinkled tissue paper.

My picture here does not show the extent of their graceful blooms. I wish I took the picture from a distance to show how they look like they’re floating against the blue sky. But taking flower pictures with kids is major distraction: my attention is split telling the kids to stop ninja chopping each other and to stay on the sidewalk.

But I did notice that its stems and unbloomed buds had fuzz all along it, as well as lots of leaves. I wonder if those factors give the thin stems its stability.

Something to google…first I need to learn what kind of flower this is. If you know, please share.  🙂

Hope everyone has a great start to a new week!

Photo Challenge: An Unusual Perspective / Megalodon shark.

Please beware: the shark image below is scary!!

A Megalodon shark hanging in the San Diego Natural History Museum lobby. Largest extinct type of shark to have existed even before dinosaurs.

Kids were terrified (me a little startled) to look directly at this shark’s enormous face with its sharp teeth and menacing stare. Although they avoided looking at it, they insisted that I take a picture of it. Every time they were in line of vision with the shark, I had to cover their eyes or they accused me of being a mean mom.

While I was writing this post, kids saw a glimpse of this shark and immediately they cried.

Thanks Cee for hosting this photo challenge! https://wordpress.com/read/blogs/59080076/posts/34156
