A couple of hours ago, Florida had a little Tropical Storm named Eta. The storm first passed by Cuba, which was a good thing. Cuba has tiny mountains. They were useful enough to weaken the Tropical Storm before it came to South Florida. This Tropical Storm did a number on Mexico. I pray that God helps the Mexicans from the Riviera Maya. I like Mexico, and the Mexicans. They don’t let folks mess with them. That is something worth respecting. In any case, Tropical Storm Eta also brought flooding to Florida. I guessed that it could cause problems in South...

Those who are not familiar with my work might be surprised by this post. Who am I kidding? You folks already know what I am all about.

In order to avoid overheating,...

I googled a bunch of flowers, and then I painted my own versions of them. The first florals I made had green backgrounds. As time went on, I tried other different types of backgrounds. I did golden this time in imitation of those medieval paintings. I just thought it made the florals pop. They are hanging up in a pretty high spot in my room. I have been making the...

flower, hybrid, rose -

As you may already know, I do a bit of gardening on the side. While tending to my roses, I noticed a new bud. As it grew, the rose bud turned out to be pink. It formed a hybrid of my red rose, and my yellow rose. My yellow rose tends to turn white in her final stage. It is just so fun to see that the animal crossing way of producing hybrids worked in the real world for me. I hope you find these photos I took of my plants quite amusing. Below are some more photos of my...
