This suits my mood perfectly today just as it did when I originally posted it way back when. A not so subtle, photographic, floral raspberry to the individual causing me much annoyance right now. He who shall not be named who has broken multiple promises to finish what he started, to remove what he has left behind, to own up to damages caused, conveniently concealed and ignored because, you know, if you don’t acknowledge it, it cannot be real of course. May none of you ever find yourself in contractor hell.

My summers would not be summers without Felicia… felicia amelloides or blue marguerites. They bloom endlessly throughout the season and hey, they are blue and that’s perfectly alright with me. I must admit I can never say the name “Felicia” without thinking of Frisco and some of you will understand that immediately and some of you will never understand at all.

Always a flower girl never a…

Well, if I have one redeeming quality, I guess it’s that I am always a handy, dandy (free) resource tool for providing the proper names of flowers.  No need to thank me - I do it as a public service.

Postcard from the edge (of Balconville) © Sharon Boswall (iammacgirl) on Flickr.
Almost the end of July already. Hard to believe how time flies. Looking forward to a vacation even though, as this pic says, it’s definitely gonna be balconville for me this year (otherwise known in the rest of Canada as the holistay or staycation) - and even then, it won’t be until September. Meanwhile, today, I slave at cleaning my little vacation spot in the sky (okay, technically, it’s only the second floor but a girl has to have lofty dreams you know)… just sayin’.

KURIOS Cabinet of Curiosities ©SharonB (iammacgirl) on Flickr.
I went to see KURIOS on May 31st - a few people had said they did not enjoy it so much as some of the previous shows of the Cirque. I went with a little trepidation and came out with a huge smile. Completely different from anything else I have ever seen by the Cirque du Soleil and by far my most favourite of them all - the costumes, the themes, the music (I need that soundtrack) - think turn of the century - strange new inventions, flying machines, electricity, bathyspheres, quirky characters including one that reminded me of a Dalek (no Tardis in sight though) - always something going on beyond the main performer(s) but not so much as to be distracting… and the dancing… I loved the seemingly continual dancing…and the little gadgets circling the edge of the stage (don’t think I didn’t want to steal one or two or all of them because I certainly did). It was absolutely delightful and amazing… and I would go again in a heartbeat just to see that upside down dinner and to satisfy my kuriosity all over again…
