Eileen (L) and sister Hope join Mrs. Tom Edison in her garden. She’s a bit stiff, but friendly nevertheless.  PG Blogfinger photo.


Eileen purchased a tropical plant, a Cordyline–this variety is called “Red Sister”. She met the grower from Vero Beach. Blogfinger photo.


The Edison Garden Festival is one of the largest plant sales in Florida. It occurs each February at the Edison Winter Estate in Fort Myers.  There is a big crowd, but plenty of parking.  There are tours, live music, and the presence of  expert horticulturists from around the state.

The true conversation of today was when a little boy and his Dad approached a massive banyan tree.  The boy said to his dad, “That’s the biggest vegetable I ever seen…”

LANA DEL REY “Blue Velvet.”    This song is from 1950, and Tony Bennett was the first to have a hit with it.  Lana Del Rey is a currently active recording star who made this version first in 2012, and it was well received.

David Lynch, who made the movie of the same name, liked it very much. Del Rey is a glamorous star who wore an off -the-rack dress from the mall to the Grammy Awards.

The version of Blue Velvet below is from her album Born to Die–the Paradise Edition (2018)

Her latest album was nominated but did not win at the 2020 Grammys. It is very good.

Click to enlarge this photo.  It’s a black and white sunset, and someone once asked me how I could photograph a colored flower in black and white.  The answer is that the color may be  pretty, but the soul of a photograph is in the light—the luminance.  And there may be other intangibles also besides color causing someone to appreciate a black and white photo.    Paul Goldfinger  ©.  Bunche Beach, Florida.


BEATLES.   “Something” was written by George Harrison, the Beatles’ lead guitarist for the 1961 album Abbey Road. This is from the One  (1)  album.

“Something in the way she moves
Attracts me like no other lover
Something in the way she woos me
I don’t want to leave her now
You know I believe and how..”
