Garden Phlox

Native to the U.S., garden phlox is a flowering plant that can be found just about anywhere; in fact, I came across this beautiful flower while driving my car down the road just a few days ago. It’s hard to miss their vivid colors.

Bee Gees

“Jive Talkin’”

It’s nice to have something upbeat to start the week! This song just makes me want to dance. It’s said to be their comeback song of 1975. This was before I was born, but I imagine people just went crazy over it with the developing disco trend.

The rhythm for this song was actually inspired by the chunka-chunka-chunka sound of a car rolling over a bridge crossing Biscayne Bay near Miami. I read this morning that the Bee Gees went over this bridge on their way to Criteria Studios, where they were recording the Main Course album. Robin Gibb told The Mail On Sunday November 1, 2009: “We’d already thought up the title for this song, but it wasn’t until Barry, Maurice and I drove from Biscayne Bay to Miami that we realized what the tune was going to be. We had the idea as we passed over a bridge. Some tar noises made a rhythmic sound on the wheels of our car, which created the feel to the type of song we wanted to write. We finished the song at the Criteria Studios that day.”

Coral Knock Out Rose

My mom grabbed some new roses this year for a landscaped area we just put together in the backyard. It was a long time coming and nice to complete finally in 2021. Here’s one of the Knock Out Roses she picked up from the nursery.

We planted three in a row, but this is the one that’s blooming prolifically now. As you can see, the buds start out a very dark coral—somewhat like a red-orange—before they get lighter and lighter fading to light pink.
