Asian Spider Lily in Bloom

Check out this amazing flower, it’s an Asian Spider Lily and blooms very rarely, and only at sunset when it decides to do so.  2016-07-21 18.41.54

My neighbor, Charlie, owns the plant and it’s in a pot out in our garden, where the conditions must have been just right this season for it to decide to produce these delicate blossoms. The fragrance is very light and sweet.  We all stood and watched the blossom open last night around sunset.  It was utterly amazing.  The plant has been in Charlie’s family for over 100 years.

I am a pretty relaxed, proud, Butch and a native Mainer who enjoys reading, writing, blogging, vlogging and social interaction. I live in southern Maine, near the coast with my 2 small dogs and I hail from a very large, loving family that is historically rooted here. I write about my life, my experiences, living successfully with HIV, my YouTube experiences, and just about anything that piques my interest. This blog may contain profanity and sexual situations, and is not intended for younger audiences. Read at your own risk. At 54 I see life as just beginning a new chapter, and have decide this is the time that I need to write the stories that got me to this point. I believe we live our lives in chapters, changing, evolving and moving continuously with the times. I love to laugh, have discussions, debates and even the occasional nonsense conversation! I generally enjoy people, but not drama, hatred, ignorance or those who choose to feel they are somehow elite or superior to another simply due to their mere existence. I try to be very conscious of the health of the world around me - environmentally, socially, economically, and ethically. The people who are dear to me know me as having a tough exterior, filled with marshmallow and crunchy peanut butter. I continually strive to be the best I can be, especially to address life head on...always.
