Reflect This #3 & Ruby Tuesday

Reflect This:

Peacock Feather

Peacock Feather

This is a half of a peacock feather. Mating season is over — in fact the new chicks are half grown! — and the male peacocks are dropping their feathers. Indeed, they’re looking more than a little motley right now and they seem to know it. Their heads aren’t as high as usual and their call isn’t half as loud as it can be.

Now, if you are saying to yourself, “That doesn’t look like a half of peacock feather. I can see both sides!” first, stop talking to yourself, then — second — look again. That is half a peacock feather tucked into the frame of the mirror. All you see here but that one-half of feather is the reflection in the mirror (including the other half of the feather).

Our Ruby Tuesday host is Mary, the Teach.

On Tuesdays you can post any photo you like (it must be one of your own) that contains the color RED. Your photo can contain lots of RED or a little bit of RED.

Lanai Tomatoes

Lanai Tomatoes

These little babies were growing on my lanai. I picked them, washed them and we very much enjoyed them in our salad. These are the second set of tomatoes we picked from this plant, the third set is just starting to blush — and the plant is blooming again! I loves me some home grown tomatoes!

A Bit of Fluff

I was walking across the lawn — think huge, this is a large condo complex — and I came across this itty-bitty piece of peacock fluff.  Mostly it is white and frizzy, but on the tips of the very end is a bit of color — emerald treasure.  Peacock magic.

Peacock Down

Peacock Down

Did you know that Fairies weave their wedding clothes from the tips of peacock feathers?  In fact, every bride ever blessed by a fairy has had a dress of peacock down.  That is why in all fairy tale weddings, the couple always lives happily ever after, no matter what.
