I just realized that there has been no documentation of my rapid tummy expansion. Eeks. So here's a very sad self portrait (like how I lopped my head off in the picture? after about 5 tries at a tummy shot, I finally gave up and chose the "best of the best").
AND, because I love gardening and would much rather putter around in the yard than do housework or other domestic diva tasks, here are a few shots of the tropical backyard jungle.
One of our Hibiscus bushes that the hummingbirds and butterflies frequent
The huge bougainvillea hedge that threatens to engulf the neighbors house (and ours if we let it) Good heavens it has the most horrific thorns which makes it an absolute terror to trim, but it's quite beautiful and again the hummingbirds, butterflies and bees love it.
