What we do outside of the shadows

I brought the squad to the beach today…

They were very excited to go. Granted it is only a minute’s walk to the beach, but they do not leave the garden often.

I do not know if you can tell, but the skulls have plants, not legs.

As luck would have it, it was the perfect summer day – calm sea, blue sky, and not a soul was in sight.

We are very lucky to be living here, are we not? This is the same coast where the turtles that you adopted from last season lay there eggs!

The squad was pleased with the beach day. Smiles all around.

I guess you could say, these skulls are living their best lives.

Many thanks to my sisters for giving me these infinitely cool skull pots and plants!

  1. Ahaha I love these pots and plants! 😄 Couldn’t help but think about the movie “What we do in the shadows” 😊 Now I kinda want to take my plants on a walk too, but for sure the scenery won’t be as beautiful as yours!


      1. Where I live, the main beaches are on the great lakes. They are beautiful. You’d really think it was the ocean if didn’t know better. And Lake Huron is knon for its gorgeous sunsets. There are other beaches on smaller lakes too. Now, on the east and west coasts, we have the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, but they are a bit far for a day, or even a weekend, trip. 😂


  2. Dear Micah,
    What lovely plants and pots you have! Well done!
    I envy you, for I have no luck in growing Cryptanthus.
    Speaking of botany and gardening, I have been a keen gardener, and would like to inform you of my four horticulture websites containing a great deal of information available to you as follows, considering that you are so fond of plants.
    Simply append the usual dot wordpress dot com to the end of the following words to visit the corresponding websites:
    Please enjoy the websites to your heart’s content.
    Happy May to you!
    Yours sincerely,

          1. Dear Micah,

            Are you intimating to SoundEagle of your plantaholic ways of being you?

            For something substantial and stimulating, you are definitely welcome to peruse and comment on my co-authored post entitled “Do Plants and Insects Coevolve?” has shown the goods. The post is available at http://soundeagle.wordpress.com/2016/08/17/do-plants-and-insects-coevolve/

            By the way, if or when you try to access my main blog, please be informed that it will benefit from being viewed on a large screen of a desktop or laptop computer, since those lengthy multimedia posts and my blog could be too powerful and feature-rich for iPad, iPhone, tablet or other portable devices to handle properly or adequately.

            Furthermore, since my intricate blog contains advanced styling and multimedia components plus animations, it is advisable to avoid using the WordPress Reader, which cannot show many of the advanced features in my posts and pages. Instead, read the posts and pages directly in my blog so that you will be able to savour and relish all of the refined and glorious details.

            Finally, but not the least, I really like that you really like plants!

            Yours sincerely,
