This is my neighbor Miss Myrna, a lovely lady with a bright green thumb!
She works at one of the best restaurants in Key West
But her real talent lies in the beautiful garden she grows
In a small space, she has created an oasis that all of the neighbors enjoy. It looks wonderful at first glance...
But when you look closer
It looks even better
There are little surprises everywhere you look
Vignettes that no matter how different the elements
All work together beautifully
and never fail to bring a smile.
Little Surprises, like a happy wabbit (yes I said wabbit) on a swing
A bench to sit and read
Budda and elephants...
A iguana with really hot lips...
Steps the cat...the unofficial gatekeeper
Dolphins and Hippos...everytime I go outside I notice something different
And of course my favorite, Toni Tiger! The cool thing is, you never know what you will see, she is constantly changing and rearranging to keep the plants happy. New things, and plants pop up all the time. All I DO know is all of the neighbors love her for it, she really puts a lot of time and love and lucky us, we get to enjoy her efforts. Thank you Myrna!
I got out of the car at the post office the other day, and threw some chips into the grass. These chickens ran so fast all the way accross the parking lot that it was funny, almost scary, but funny. As they ran towards the car I really wish I had taken a video, they run really fast on those crooked little legs!
Yea? Is what this one was seeming to say...it was hanging out in the bouganvilla behind Salute on the Beach.
I didn't even realize till several years ago that they even hung out above ground, till I lived downtown and there was a tree where dozens settled every night
What a wattle!
This one was quite at home at the shopping center, right on top of someones brand new car...as most of them are, he was happy to pose...I was afraid to shoo him because he might have scratched the paint..it looked like he forgot where he parked his car and was trying to get a better view to find it. Ever done that?
This one BEGGED to have it's picture taken, I was happy to oblige, and I apologized for being out of chips
These two were having quite the conversation over lunch
Then she told him to go back to work....
And Grampa took a nap....
But they do like to pose
Guess it's part of thier job to 'Smile for the tourists'
Some are just Mommies, who I'm sure hope that when the kids are teens...
They don't go to extremes with the hair...whoops, I mean feathers....
And some just look good enough to eat, check out those breasts!
I love our Chickens, some people hate them because they don't always crow at the right time. Anyone who lives here for any amount of time has had to deal with that off and on, including me. Believe me when I bartending I cursed more than one of them myself. This one was shopping downtown, after holding up traffic as he leisurely crossed the street, several times....
Time to go, see a sucker in the distance with some cuban bread, see ya'll later!
