When I was a little girl I had a mineral collection. One of my favorite pieces was a chunk of pyrite. I love its brassy grey color!
The barrel shaped pyrite beads are accented with black onyx. A perfect bracelet for fall and winter! Available at Miss Val’s Creations.
Portsmouth, NH Part III
Part III is very floral! There were more amazing flowers in Portsmouth this time than any other time we have visited here! So of course I had to take many, many photos!
There is a huge garden area near the water with a brilliant selection of flowers. So many different types and colors!
Each flower is labeled so if you want to take notes for your own garden you know what to ask for at the garden center!
There are beautiful flowers throughout the city too. This sweet hibiscus was in a doorstep pot. I have never seen one that was multi colored before!
This pretty pink one was in a beautifully landscaped bank parking lot.
This black plant is real! It is in the window of a wine bar titled The Black Trumpet. The plant choice must have something to do with their theme. You can see fresh baked bread cooling in the window. Oh how I wish I could eat regular bread again! Jim and I have not been inside this place yet…maybe next year!
At Prescott Park there is a pretty fenced in garden area with brick walkways and benches.
There are many magnificent window and door photos on Pinterest so I started a new board this week. I added this photo since it has charm. I love the window barely showing behind the sunflowers and ivy.
Ending the post with a little street art! This one seems appropriate with all the shark sightings, close calls and one shark attack we had off the coast of Massachusetts this summer!
The guy who got attacked is fine. He had the bright idea of swimming out really far (with his son) to a sand bar knowing of all the shark sightings. Maybe he wanted 10 minutes of fame which he got! People are nuts.
I hope you enjoyed all these floral delights! Thank you for stopping by and have a great week ahead! ~Val
