i'm dealing with the flu right now and it hurts to take deep breaths because a sharp, prickly pain shoots across my upper back. needless to say, i haven't felt up to posting so this one will be quick.

NEWSFLASH - the name of this tree is no longer a mystery - YAY!

chinese rain tree aka. golden rain tree

    Lovely self portrait! and what an interesting tree. I've never seen that before. Love the name - whether it's golden or chinese, "rain tree" sounds magical and refreshing.

  16. So sorry to hear you are feeling crummy! I've been there too much the past few months and wouldn't wish it on anybody! Sending healing thoughts--and, I agree, if the pains across your back don't go away--have that checked.

    Aha! The pretty plant has an official name! :)

    You look so nice in the picture--must have been before you were sick? Either that or you even look good sick--not fair! hehe! :):) Get well soon, lady!

  17. Feel better soon! You look pretty good in that pic! I usually look like a pile of crap when I am sick!
