I love those shell lamps and the fish lamp. And Orca is up there too! Sorry to hear of a disruptive sleep, but at least you have the quietest moment for the rest of the day. Cheryl, my Boat and Sheep jigsaw was my 200th jigsaw puzzle solved. For now, I don't care about the timing anymore. I just play as it pleases me especially that my thinking process has been a lethargic these days, being feeling tired. Hope your school days ahead will be more exciting! Keep blogging still! :)

Good morning Titania. With so many blogs to visit I could hardly keep up.

Coleus plants come in many varieties. And yes, they are easy to grow being succulents. Some are decoratives and some are medicinals. The most popular medicinal specie is the read with semi elongated leaves. Good for treating bruises and wounds. In another blog it mentioned that it is also good for headaches and coughs.

I love the Calathea amabilis or Prayer plant. The contour of the leaves alone and the form of the ribs is quite interesting: leaves within a leaf.

It is from you that I learn most of the names of the plant.

If you allow me to copy the picture with their names on it, that's all what I am interested about.

I studied Pharmacognosy in my Pharmacy class and most of my knowledge are forgotten being out of practice.

Meanwhile, am not doing anything until I hear approval or disapproval from you.

I do find it hard to compare pictures in my Plant Encyclopedia because the pictures varies and that makes me so unsure. Even if I google them.

Thank you dear teacher.

Subject: Church of Paoay, Ilocos Norte

Very highly educational, interesting, entertaining and one that is cleverly presented by such a talented lady like you. As DJan noted, that is an Organic Church. I know that Egyptian architectures are made of straw bricks, so it's not a wonder how this Church in Paoay made such a long lasting heritage to last in centuries.

Most of us in the bloggerworld have seen many wonders in the world beside those listed on the top 7. Little did we know that there are still many in thousands out there that still remains to be discovered.

I am truly awed by the knowledge of the people since time immemorial how they created things much to our wonderment. The modern architecture seems to be reduced to shame at other times when it comes to the durability of their composition and component of their buildings these days. Easily cracked at a slight tremor.

Anyway, could you please pick this up for this lovely blog?

The Angels painted them for you! I have never seen one like that before! It looks so charismatic and the prismatic layer of the colour is just awesome! I wonder if you let me copy that picture and be inspired to write poetry of that beauty?
