    For this special day, I thought I would share with you a Psychotria poeppigiana, the "Hot Lips" flower of the Amazon rainforest. Nature is incredible.

    Happy Valentines day to all of you. I just went out and purchased my 44th consecutive box of candy, so maybe I'll live to see tomorrow.

    Apparently, hummingbirds sip from it, so it's not poisonous to them, anyway.

    Beautiful flower! It's pictures like those that always rekindle my childhood dream of running away to live in the jungle of South America and live in a Banyan tree or something.

    (of course, I'd probably be pounced upon by a jaguar the first night)

    Thanks mamabeek! I have a few antique dolls up there on the shelf,plus the little teddy bear i had as a baby. My upstairs office is very pleasant to work in.

    I'm still trying to get the nerve up to apply a bee sting to my aching shoulder. maybe this Spring... I'm surprised i didn't get a sting from sticking my face right at the hive today!
