Gorgeous! We have gray skies again. The color is so welcome.

Beautiful set of photos. I'm botanically challenged so I won't attempt to identify anything here. I do know that orchids usually remind me of space aliens. (Except for naturalized Florida orchids, of course)

Horse manure invented in Ocala. That is too funny. Boy you two are sure pros at macro photos! Lovely.

Regarding Askew!, the game:

the crooked sticks need to balance. Anything that falls off is in your pile. Goal is to get rid of all of them. I never usually follow rules to games like these, so I haven't read them diligently. I just like to balance them. The man who designed the game is a designer for Volvo. I think he actually developed the prototype with coat hangers!
