Small Victory!

Butterfly on zinnia

Okay, so the deer ate all my hibiscus. That is sad. BUT: I FINALLY have a butterfly! Apologies for the picture quality. I was about to zoom in when a car drove by and the butterfly flew away. I wasn’t even sure that I’d gotten the distance shot before that happened but I was lucky!

There's not much to say about me. I discovered SecondLife by accident, wandered in, and decided I wanted to stay. This blog was a chronicle of my adventures and misadventures in SL. It also includes stray thoughts that occur to me as a result of my time in SL. Both I and my avatar are female. We both love water and the beach and gardening and parties and hanging out with friends. Updating this after quite some time. I haven't appeared in SL in many many months (probably over a year by now) but SL has remained in my thoughts. I do miss my SL, but at least I still have contact with some of my friends from there. In the meantime.... this blog has evolved to be about my RL adventures. :) Nowhere near as risque as my SL but I do keep busy. I still like all the things listed above. I didn't have any cats in SL (only ducks and a panda) so my cats feel that they should play starring roles in my posts. :) I didn't do much eating IN SL although certainly food and drink accompanied me in RL while I roamed inworld. Cooking and baking have become more fun and interesting once I redid my kitchen. That renovation took longer and cost more than if I'd done it virtually, but I'm thrilled to have a tangible new kitchen! I hope you like food and drink as well! Thanks for reading!

  1. I’m envious of your hummingbirds. I tried to grow some flowers that I know hummingbirds like (because I saw them on my flowers in the past) but none of the seeds took. And given the dearth of butterflies, maybe there aren’t any hummingbirds around either. I think I may need to start putting nets on the hibiscus plants at night. very frustrating

  2. I have maybe one bush that the hummers like – but it appears to be one that they’ll nest in. A giant – I want to say viburnum, but it’s not at all showy. I’d cut it down if it wasn’t for the little brats. The only other things I can offer them are the feeders.
    I feel for you with your hibiscus and I’ll train some of the birds to come and defend them for you. They might as well earn all this sugar water. 🙂
