Friday Flower Pick : Scarlet Begonias




Scarlet begonias and fresh pine boughs 
look dazzling in the dancing light, just after a pouring morning rain!!
Sparkling rain drops and bright Christmas reds and greens make for a delightfully festive Friday Flower Pick!!


In between rain showers...
a winged little friend zipped in and kept me company 
while he enjoyed his organic sugar water!!

HappyFriday!!
Love,
MademoiselleMermaid

Rainbows + Rainshowers : Mermaid Monday

Mademoiselle Mermaid is back (to blogging)...after a brief hiatus!!
...and it seems very fitting to begin again on a lovely and fresh Mermaid Monday!!



Of all the wonderful images + memories + projects I have been collecting over the past couple weeks, none makes my heart sing quite like the memory of a glorious and much needed rain shower we had just after the Thanksgiving holiday!!

From watching the dark clouds roll in over the ocean, to quiet walks under the pitter-patter of a gentle morning shower, and finishing with a decidedly beautiful rainbow...
...I enjoyed those couple of wet 'n wild days immensely!!



It was a beautiful way to kick off the Holiday Season!!

...Hope your Holidays are off to a fabulous start too!!
Love,
MademoiselleMermaid

Friday Flower Pick : The Hibiscus



Today's Friday Flower Pick is an often admired, tropical beauty that is as likely to be found peeking out from lush green hedges along a sidewalk...
...as dazzling in an earthen pot, decorating a porch or patio...

...but always with it's exotic-looking flowers bobbing in a gentle ocean breeze...
...It's the eternally lovely hibiscus!!



HappyFriday!!
