Mellow Monday

Hello everyone!  Thank you so much for stopping by!  The video I have chosen for this post is relaxing saxophone music by Jacob Merrill.  The video is just 3 minutes in length.  Enjoy!

The photos I am sharing today are ones that I took on my nature park walk.  I have no idea what they are called, but I love the colours and patterns!  I took these photos inside the greenhouse at the nature park.  You just need to click on the images to see a larger view.

Thank you so much for visiting me here!  I always appreciate and enjoy reading your kind thoughts, which you are always welcome to share by clicking on the 'comments' link at the end of my post.

    Finalement je ne suis pas loin du compte lorsque je peins des feuilles aux couleurs et formes étranges, n'est-ce pas ?...
    Des très jolies photos.
    Gros bisous

    1. Hi Sean, I think you are right about the plants! It was kind of a rainforest feeling in the greenhouse...hot and humid, which is why these plants thrive so well I guess. :)

  10. These leaves are beautiful!! The first one may be a prayer plant, I used to grow them. At the end of the day, the leaves all stood up like they were praying. Then with the dawn, they would come back down.

  13. I agree that the first one looks like a prayer plant. The last one is quite common, too but the name isn't coming to me right now. The saxophone was my mom's favorite instrument to listen to. I played clarinet and they aren't too much different - - but we didn't have the money for another instrument.
