Mother Nature Symmetry
Turtle Shell
The lower shell that encases the belly is called the plastron. The carapace and plastron are joined together on the turtle's sides by bony structures called bridges. The inner layer of a turtle's shell is made up of about 60 bones that include portions of the backbone and the ribs, meaning the turtle cannot crawl out of its shell.  Tortoises, being land-based, have rather heavy shells. In contrast, aquatic and soft-shelled turtles have lighter shells that help them avoid sinking in water and swim faster with more agility.  Wikepedia
Conclusion:  Texas Turtles that Float the Concho are at risk of going PlastronUp when they OverImbibe and try shucking their SwimSuits. 
Pistol Packin' HollyHock
In Japan, the Holly Hock was incorporated into the official seal of the Tokugawa Shogunate, and through this influence has maintained importance in modern Japanese culture.

Such a beautiful and perfect example of one Mother Nature's symmetrical creations.
Texas Mother Nature blessed us with a bountiful harvest of 'Pistol Packin' Holly Hocks this year at the San Angelo Picket Fence Gardens.

This Symmetry Theme was fun for me, as it is my Nature to Balance Everything. 
However, as a Professional Artist/Designer I have 'Forced' myself to be A-Symmetrical LopSider! 
How about You...are you a Balancer or a Lopsider?

The Letter 'A' ... It's AWESOME

 It's not often that I take Photo's of the less Attractive side of People, Places or Things.
But the driver of the Auto in which I was a passenger...well, he was following the
 Arrow pointing to the left... Away from Academy's Attractive Side. 

It worked out Alright since it opened the Avenue for presenting our Athlete Grandson
 who supported  America's Breast Cancer Awareness Month
 by wearing Pink Leggings and the Pink Ribbon on his
 Athletic Footbal Gear which was bought at....

It's FourO'Clocks...Somewhere



Four-O'Clocks
by Julia Caroline Ripley Dorr 1892
It is mid-afternoon.  Long, long ago
Each morning-glory sheathed the slender horn
It blew so gayly on the hills of morn,
And fainted in the noontide's fervid glow.

Gone are the dew-drops from the rose's heart-
Gone with the freshmess of the early hours,
The songs that filled the air with silver showers,
The lovely dreams that were of morn a part.

Yet still in tender light the garden lies;
The warm, sweet winds are whispering soft and low;
Brown bees and butterflies flit to and fro;
The peace of heaven is inthe o'erarching skies.

And here be four-o'clocks, just opening wide
Their many colored petals to the sun,
As glad to live as if the evening dun
Were far away, and morning had not died!

When nothing else will grow and bloom for lack of moisture and the extreme Texas heat, I can always count on Four'OClocks. 

Botanically known as Mirabilis jalapa..Marvel of Peru, it is the most commonly grown ornamental species of Mirabilis, and is available in a range of colours  Mirabilis in Latin means wonderful and Jalapa is a town in Mexico.  The flower is said to have been exported from the Peruvian Andes in 1540.  A curious aspect of this plant is that flowers of different colors can be found simultaneously on the same plant.  (more info on Wikipedia)
