Mellow Yellow Monday #81

This beautiful orchid was given to me by my good friend Patrice from Ricepatty's Repertoire.  And for those who want to know what kind it is, it's an oncidium intergeneric orchid.

Ewwwww chunky is right!

When I poured out these chunky mushrooms into the skillet this "huge chunk" plopped out!  I'm sure it's the stem of the mushroom but it's gross.   It was all I could do to take a picture of it (so I can show the company too).  After I took the picture I immediately threw it away!

Color Carnival #54

This is the waiting area outside of The Bubble Room Restaurant on Captiva Island, FL (USA).  Inside the restaurant is not any less colorful than the outside!  The bubble lights we had on our Christmas tree growing up as kids are all over this restaurant as well as thousands of antique items throughout the restaurant.  If you ever get a chance to go Sanibel/Captiva Island make this a must have stop on your list!  BTW, they have a signature dessert, Orange Cake, that is to die for.  It's enough to feed 4 people (after a meal) and I overheard a woman say she traveled over 100 miles just to eat that cake!
