Oops!

I should have done this yesterday! Did you notice I put a reference point in with the skulls? They are not much larger than a thimble ( notice there is a witch on this thimble! click to enlarge.). After reading yesterday's comments I realized most of you thought they were human sized. Sorry. I don't think I would have them in my house either if they were really big! I think these are cute skulls.





Rare pair of Rookwood raven bookends, i.e. Edgar Allen Poe

You can see the ravens are standing on opened books.

a little more....


and a bit more.




Chameleon plant. These are wonderful ground covers. As the season progresses they will turn green, chartreuse, and pink. They will grow and spread almost anywhere. I plant them in spots were absolutely nothing else will grows.

Blueberries

It rained yesterday...


The Salem Witch Daylily continues to open.

An iron snake on my gate.

I wish I could have the chameleon plant here. It´s so nice but it´s to cold for it here. Zinnias is something I fail with nowdays. Don´t know why though. The raven book ends are fantastick!
have a great day now!

I love the ravens. They're definately attached to me in some way or another... i want to get something to have around to altar that deals with them, seeing they seem to be crucial in my life at the moment :)
