Clearwater, Florida: Grid Control Nursery Racks

Clearwater, Florida: Grid Control Nursery Racks Lowes
Are you ON the GRID or OFF the GRID? Amazing thing, "the Grid", and so many ways to think of it, or them. I suppose there are good reasons for it all, but I do wonder about the way we force things into a framework or construct to suit our own agendas.

How much more organic and NON-conforming can you get than a plant... and then, to suit our purposes or whims, we force it into an artificially round or square container (flower pot) and then corral them into ordered rows and columns. THEN we order all that on gridded shelves on nursery racks. Efficient? No doubt. And please don't get me wrong, I have bought many plants this way, and will continue to do so. But it still makes me wonder, when I notice the 'grid', just how much our lives are controlled by it.

And speaking of off-grid, the 34th Annual Tarpon Springs Fine Arts Festival is this weekend! Click here for more information.

Clearwater, Florida: Management And Control

Clearwater, Florida: Management And Control
Sometimes, is simply boils down to management and control. Manage the chaos, control the energy. Or is it control the chaos, and manage the energy? Or perhaps it is control the bananas, and manage the mangoes?

Well, the point is, there are those who would manage and control, while others encourage and support. Perhaps they are the same thing, but motivated by different agendas?

** HAPPY FRIDAY!!!

Clearwater, Florida: This Pack Rat Pod Is For You!

Clearwater, Florida: This Pack Rat Pod Is For You!
I almost slammed on the brakes when I saw this one! I mean, this thing was MADE FOR ME! Pack rat is my middle name. So I thought I had found my long lost family. Sadly, no family in sight... but this sure seems like a simple answer to storage situations that can get complicated.

They deliver the storage unit to you, then you pack it and either store it at your location, or they will take it off to their climate controlled storage facility. Not bad. Check out 1-800-Pack-Rat if you need a storage solution. I've never used them, but it couldn't hurt to check them out, now could it?

Clearwater, Florida: South American Grocery Store

Clearwater, Florida: South American Grocery Store
So, wandering around Drew St., in Clearwater, I see this little grocery store. At least, I am pretty sure it is a grocery store... although a very little one. Neat.

I don't know Spanish, but I think it's easy to figure out that they carry products from the Dominican Republic, Mexico, and Colombia, at least. I did not have an opportunity to check out the store that day, but I am curious, and want to go back and see what it's all about.

Clearwater, Florida: Tubular Tuesday: Wormhole Trip To Dunedin

Dunedin, Florida: Edgewater Drive: Waterfront Light Show
Welcome to Tubular Tuesday, when we take a tube ride through a wormhole and end up somewhere else! Today, we end up in Dunedin, Florida, on Edgewater Drive for a light show...

The funny thing is, it didn't look like a light show when I was down there snapping pictures! It just looked like cars driving by, and the sun going down, and a beautiful golden glow covering all the wonderful homes there.

I know these pictures are easy to come by, but it doesn't seem to keep me from taking some more of them whenever I get the chance. It's like clouds, trees, and so on... there are certain subjects that, no matter how many images of them I might already have, I always snap some more when I see it again. Oy! What about you?

(I hope you enjoyed this recent post from my Dunedin Daily Photo website.)

Clearwater, Florida: Upon Remembering To Look UP

Clearwater, Florida: Upon Remembering To Look UP
I've said it before, and I'll say it again... always remember to LOOK UP! Of course, that means you should also remember to look down too. But today we are talking about UP. No, I don't claim this as an original idea... but I have learned it well enough, and pass it on when I can.

So recently, while pointing my camera this way and that, at eye level basically, I remembered to look up. That's when I saw this cloud-scape. Wow. Neat clouds. Yeah, you can see them anytime, just about anywhere... but these clouds were the ones there that day. These look to me like giant cities, floating through the sky, headed off to alien worlds, where they will slowly dissipate, to be reborn again in some other shape, in some other place.

Clearwater, Florida: Nature's Way... With Nursery Carts?

Clearwater, Florida: Nature's Way... With Nursery Carts?
I'm guessing that all these carts, spotted out behind the Lowe's in Clearwater, Florida, are waiting to go back to their respective Nurseries and be reloaded with plants. It's not hard to realize that the spring gardening season is upon us when you see the TRUCKLOADS of bagged mulch piling up in the Lowe's garden center. Wow, lots of mulch!

So I would imagine that all these carts will be getting plenty of mileage over the next few months as they replenish the supply of new plants for gardens and landscapes in the Clearwater area. What about you, are you making any Spring gardening plans?
