A CLOCKWORK ORANGE

PERSONAL CHIMES DSCN6858
These orange delights are all over the place here at home. They do take over with their tendrils that run for long distances, then pounce up where you`d least expect.
When you get down & dirty with them, they are very fragile & easily bruised, but retain a certain charm with their inner chime.
In the header is a Money Tree trunk with a 56 T-Bird to cruise in.
On Planet Earth, an Easter Basket with a few surprises, like the little succulent "chicks" I put in for Pudsy.
I hope the colors here today are a sign of things to come for all of you that are still snow blind.
Have a spring day tomorrow.

That's lovely -- I like the sparklies made by the dusting of pollen.

And I finally got my satellite internet back yesterday so I could enjoy the spectacular DSCN6866 in Planet Earth. Wonderful use of lighting. Edges, I do love edges.

Andif,
I bet myself that the 6866 image would be the one you were talking about. I was right.
I`ll remember the edges for the future.
This bud is growing underneath the leaves which are on a branch growing towards the darker area under the eaves on our house.
Happy Easter to you & yours.

Am very fond of the two images of 6857. Appears to be a small yellow flame on top of the chime. Peace for Easter.

MSNDD,
It reminds me of the bells chiming from the church on Easter morning, celebrating the resurrection of Jesus.
I couldn`t find any Easter Lilies, but I did like the belles of this ball.
I love your "Peace Flame" image very much.
May it forever burn.
Happy Easter

Likewise to you & yours Olivia,
I`m glad the IB`s ring your bell.

The Header image is from a braided tree I rescued from a demolition years ago. When I asked what kind of tree this was to a group of strangers at my house one day, someone told me it was a "Money Tree".
"A money tree plant is a special type of bonsai tree. The design originated in Taiwan in the 1980s, and was quickly picked up by many other Asian nations. Areas with large Asian populations frequently have money tree plants for sale, because they are supposed to bring good luck and fortune. The money tree plant is particularly associated with China, and is often given out at Chinese New Year complete with red banners and other lucky decorations.

The species used for a money tree plant is formally known as Pachira aquatica. It is native to swamp lands in South America. The plant itself is already considered to be fortunate by followers of feng shui, because of its five lobed palmate leaves. A money tree plant with leaves in clusters of seven, another powerful number, is considered to be especially lucky. The leaves of the money tree plant are edible, along with the flowers and nuts that it forms. The lucky trees can often be found in powerful places in the home, because plants and living things are supposed to be good for feng shui.

The story goes that in the 1980s, a Taiwanese truck driver tried making bonsai with multiple trees, and braiding the stems together. The result, the money tree plant, can be found for sale in almost any Asian market worth its salt. The trees are heavily handled while they grow, so that the stems can be braided into a central trunk of three, five, or more stems. The top of the money tree plant is allowed to grow outward normally, so that the lucky leaves can flourish"
