The pointed beak of the resting anhinga further extends its already long neck. Always fun to watch their antics! :) Naples, FL

Until I got up close, I really thought someone had left a starfish in the garden...what an unusual flower! :) It is apparently called a Carrion Cactus and has an interesting story per this website. [Note - I didn't notice any stink!] :) It reminds me, though, of the importance of camouflage for some to survive. Recognizing that many make their reputation by being a 'standout' and having name recognition, there is still value in 'hiding in plain sight' to allow for a different kind of quality success.

There's a constant drip and trickle of life that goes into one's awareness really and consciousness of things.
~ Mike Leigh
Whether or not it is obvious or latent, that constant 'drip of life' continues to influence and impact our day-to-day moments. Carpe diem. :) Naples, FL

The lovely plumeria (also known as frangipani) trees are in bloom - they really are magnificent visual beauties. I recently acquired a yellow one to add to my pink tree, but now I see I need the white...especially when the sky is this bold blue! :) Naples, FL

Not sure how 'welcoming' this pair of chairs is, but certainly a whimsical visual while enjoying a beach walk on a gorgeous afternoon. ;) There's no doubt that summer is on it's way, but for us that means heat, humidity and hurricanes, so I'll keep May, please!
