Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge (CFFC): Fun with Other Challenges

This week’s CFFC spotlight is MONDAY WINDOWS.

Self loves Monday Windows.

Here’s the front window of Mendocino Chocolate Company on Main Street in Mendocino Village. If anyone’s within driving distance, highly recommend!


Bonus window: The Gallery Bookshop is one of self’s favorite bookstores. Also on Main Street in Mendocino Village, it is open every day until 6 p.m. Self took this picture in the late afternoon, on a cloudy day in December.

Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge (CMMC) and Flower of the Day (FOTD) AND Water, Water Everywhere (WWE)!

Self multi-posting/multi-tasking like mad!

There’s a brief break in the rain. Self has to fetch a book from the library, then dash to the post office.

In the meantime, she did a quick check of her backyard. And found her plants doing quite well, thank you very much.

Here’s a close-up of her loropetalum razzleberri “fringe flower” for three photo challenges: CMMC, FOTD, and Jez’s WWE!

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Four Colors or More

Thank you, Cee Neuner, for another great CFFC!

For her “four colors or more” post, she will focus on food presentation! Maybe that’s because in her current read, A Woman in Berlin, food is front and center on every page. It’s April 1945, and the citizens of Berlin are starving.

As she reads, self is constantly reminded how lucky she is, despite everything.

During her most recent visit to San Luis Obispo, a few months ago, she decided to look for an old favorite: Thai–rrific on Higuera. She was so happy to find that it had survived!

Summer concerts in Stafford Park were a quintessential part of self’s summer for over 30 years. Then, the pandemic happened. This year, the concerts came back! YES! And with them, a taco truck. Self tried the lengua taco. Dee-lish!

Flower of the Day (FOTD): Kangaroo Paw

It’s been at least a week since self was able to post a Flower of the Day (FOTD), so she was happy to find this Kangaroo Paw growing in front of the Mendocino Chocolate Company, on Main Street. It is common in gardens here in Mendocino:

Still playing catch-up with this wonderful challenge, co-hosted by Cee Neuner and Marsha Ingrao!

One December, Dublin:

Oh, it was cold.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.

Flower of the Day (FOTD): Fort Bragg

Self went to the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens for the annual Festival of Lights show, where she stumbled across this wonderful tableaux. And thought it would be perfect for Cee Neuner’s Flower of the Day Challenge.

Flower of the Day (FOTD) Challenge: Angel’s Trumpet

Self decided to take a short walk along Main Street just before dark. At the end of an alley was a wee little store (closed). Just by the entrance was a blooming angel’s trumpet.

She took a picture for Cee Neuner’s Flower of the Day Challenge.

She’s seen one of these in her hometown. It is also huge:
