Weekly Photo Challenge: Solitary

I took this picture on Sunday and thought it a perfect representation of solitary.

Solitary Jogger at Jaycee Beach

One second later and she’d have been gone!!! 🙂

This next image illustrates solitary gone awry….or said another way: when the hand of man interferes with the hand of God, strange things happen 😉

Mexican Donkey Ear Plantlets

See those little plantlets along the leaf margins?  Those are new Mexican Donkey Ear “daughters” coming out in force because I removed the original solitary new growth (note the notch near the leaftip.)   Not my brightest idea ➡ sensing annhilation it just produced more!

Nature’s survival instinct outsmarted my desire for less of this succulent. 😉

Time for Plan B!

Until next time….

  2. Perfect indeed. the first, a picture of beauty and serenity. The second, an exciting irresistible fusion of Nature’s mystery and survival instincts. Wonderful post! Have a great weekend.

  3. One of my favorite plants is “Mother of Thousands,” which looks like a cousin to your Mexican Donkey Ear “Daughters.” Now I know what to do to actually encourage more “babies” growing–pinch off the little buds–and all along I’ve kept small potted plants arranged around the big plant to catch little buds as they fall. This was a great post, and the photography was delightful!
