this n that

Just another entry in the vein of a Seinfeld episode....alot about nothing. Ive got a few more pix on the computer desktop that I wanna get shared before I file them away. This first one to the left my hubby's tat. For the life of me I cant remember if there was a story behind it or not. It's a pretty cool dragon though. I wouldnt want anything quite that big on myself...just something small and enough to help identify me. Not that that's gonna happen because I really hate needles.

This picture to the right is the plant that has the bloom from my bee and flower picture. Personally, I think the bugger's a weed. The door to the right of the plant is my neighbor's and the cement to the left is my front step. This next picture to the left is of the same type of plant. At least the blooms and leaves are the same. It's that big plant behind the mailboxes. To show you how tall the plant is fully grown, it's 6' behind the mail boxes and the top of the mailboxes is taller than me and Im 5'5" tall (official measurement from the dr's office).

The picture to the right here is those bushes in the front of my townhouse. Strange thing...they look like they're going to be blooming.....*AGAIN*. I fully expect the flowers will emerge by next week or so. I've never known a plant that blooms more than once in a season....but both of this will be. *sigh*

There's a townhouse in my cul de sac for rent. It's been empty for at least 8 months. How do I know? Because it was empty when we moved in. They have brand new windows in the second story..those were replaced just a couple months ago. I think they really want to rent this place out as they have 4 "For Rent" signs in the windows. I got a good look at the property owner when he was in the neighborhood the other week and considering the state of the world today (and where many of America's boys and girls are right now), Im not sure this place is ever going to get rented to be honest. No offense, but I know I surely wouldnt rent from him.

I guess I didn't realize how big that plant with the flowers was. Wild Columbine would never get that big, I don't think. Definitely not 6 feet tall, and being that big, I highly doubt it's a simple weed. It would be interesting to find out what it is.

My neighbor has a couple of flower/bushes just like this one - it's definitely not a weed. I'm thinking it might be a variety of a "Rose of Sharon" - which usually has purple/blue flowers of nearly identical size and shape. The flower buds on the plant you took pictures of are the same size and shape of a Rose of Sharon too.

I do believe that Iggy is right. That definantly looks like a Rose of Sharon bush. So it's not a weed. (why don't you just ask your neighbor lol)

The front bush looks like a Rose of Sharon, and the one in the back looks like a rhododendren.

That is a cool tat - but I still wouldn't want one lol.
Nice plant pictures but I don't what the flowers are!
