Pretty! Shiny!

I write dark, moody and grim stuff. That doesn't mean I don't like shiny, pretty things though.

Like this:

Watch the Birdie!

Bird of Paradise happens to be one of my favorite flowers. It's so exotic and downright irresistible to the eye.

My BoP plant seems to be a bit finicky. I've had it for around seven years or so and it's only sprouted a solo bird on two occasions. This year the conditions must have been ideal because it's currently sporting 4 birds. With more on the way.

Maybe global warming does have a good side-effect or two. Don't quote me on that.
