Good Morning Bar Harbor

Bah Habah if you are so inclined to say it that way.  Bar Harbor, Maine a town on Mount Desert Island in Maine is where it is said that you can see the sun rise first in all of the United States.  I was going to go down to the harbor to take a sunrise photo anyway – the other best option was from the top of Cadillac Mountain but I knew my chances of actually getting there and getting a spot were better at the harbor – the first sunrise bit just gave me the will to get up so very early.

It was worth getting up early for and a great start for my return to Maine series.  Picking up where I left off last… again.

Happy and Melancholy

This weekend has been very busy around Casa de Dashfield.  DH celebrated another trip around the sun which we celebrated by taking him out to dinner at his favorite restaurant and surprising him with a birthday cake – and no fire trucks had to be summoned to extinguish the flames from the candles 🙂  I think I had more of a headache from eating too much sweets (which I normally don’t do) than from the martini when celebrating with DH.Then there was his mom’s birthday and daylight savings times has everyone looking at their clocks and watches wondering if they reset themselves or what.

Those moments and the fact that next week I will be back home visiting the now almost four month old were the happy times.  While I thought I had gotten used to it, today started off with some melancholy as it is my mother’s birthday.  She has been gone now for six years but every once in awhile I feel the loss.  Circle of life and all that stuff… sigh.   I will be back tomorrow with a return to our trip last September that took us to Maine.

Cya tomorrow 🙂

Burgundy Slippers

Today is the last day of my orchid series and in reality I believe the show ends today here as well.  Stay tuned for a new series…as soon as I figure out what it will be.  Have a great weekend and for those of us in the USA that live in states that participate, watch out for that lost hour on Sunday.

Sunshine Superman

This Lady’s Slipper orchid just made me think of that song with it’s bright yellow and green colors and the light shining through it.

Lady’s Slipper

Really?  Why they were named this still amazes me – I mean c’mon! But they are still fascinating orchids nonetheless.

Oncidium in formation

This stem of Oncidium orchids reminds me of choreographed dancers that are all in line one in front of the other and that fan out on cue.

Cymbidiums Again

This is one of the orchids at the show that had a wonderful fragrance although some would say the one orchid species that smells like chocolate wins the prize.
