NaPoWriMo Day 13

Today’s prompt: “today I challenge you to write a riddle poem”

This one’s easy for me as I have a “Riddle Me This” category right here on my blog. Although I considered copying and pasting one of my old riddles I decided to write a new one just for NaPOWriMo.

Here ye here ye

Let it be known

Im still really small

Even when I’m full grown

Either way Im very helpful

During youth or old age

My worth does not waiver

No matter my life stage

I pig out on things

That creep some folks out

Im quick when I grab em

As I lurk all about

So not everyone values

My size, style, or worth

Is it my color

Or perhaps my girth

Wait, I’m no fat guy

Im sleek, slender and slim

Im fast when I move

I go limb to limb

Got it now? Do you know what I am?

Ok need more clues

Look closely at the pic

At the different green hues

Im right there in front

Im trying to blend in

You can call me Waldo

When you find me you win!

Scenes from our greenhouse—

Recently, we posted a pic of our special bougainvillea and tonight we’d like to share a few more shots. The flowers featured here have been in our 10 x 10 backyard greenhouse all winter. We have hibiscus plants, sago palms, banana trees, a wandering jew, a variegated bougainvillea and that plant with the beautiful orange blooms. We bought it two years ago, and after almost losing it last winter, we were able to nurse it back to health and showcase it in one of our many flower beds over the summer. It was nestled in a corner of the greenhouse this past winter and to our welcomed surprise it started putting out new leaves and beautiful orange blooms a few weeks ago. Long story short- we don’t remember what the plant is called.

If anyone is familiar with it, please feel free to enlighten us….

(we inadvertently forgot to get pictures of our hibiscus plants but we’ll be sure and post some when we do)

Hope you enjoy—-
