March Photo a Day 18: A Corner of Your House


This was the most interesting corner of my house. We have three fish in there: an angel fish, a tiger barb, and a red platy. Originally, there was a guppy instead of an angel fish, but the tiger barb attacked the guppy and killed it. We then went to a proper aquarium store as opposed to one of the big chains, where people don’t always give the best advice, and asked for a fish that could survive in this tank with the barb. The Angel Fish is now king (or Queen) of the tank.

March Photo a Day 15: Car

I wanted to share the impressive parking skills of this patron with the world.


March Photo a Day 17: Green


This is called a “shamrock plant.” I found some growing in a pot outside and got excited because I thought I’d found 4 leaf clovers. It is really Oxalis regnellii, or sorrel.When I was looking up the plant, I kept seeing the oxalis regnelli listed as a purple shamrock, but I’m going to defer to the USDA plant website, which pictures the green variety; triangularis has the red purple leaves. Its leaves are edible in small quantities (but the website I’m linking to notes ALL of it is actually toxic; it’s just low in toxicity. Hmmm).

March Photo a Day 14: Clouds

I’m behind on Photo a Day. It began with clouds– there were no clouds at all the day of the assignment. It rained over the weekend. I took both of these on Friday, March 16.



March Photo a Day 13: a Sign

The assignment was a Sign.

I just got this for my car yesterday and couldn’t resist. It’s my Smart Girl Mudflap.

I like the palm trees and sky reflecting, too.

BTW, it photographed better with a dirty window than with a clean.
