Red Flower Photo: Mandevilla Vine at Mansion Farm Inn in Milton

Red Mandevilla Vine Photo by Aquariann
I have been a busy, busy bee, growing Ogre's Grove and collaborating with other artists and small business owners. Recently I was invited to tour the Mansion Farm Inn in Milton, Delaware. I'll be writing more about that exciting experience at my Photography Field of Flowers blog on BeachPaper.com later this month. For now, I just wanted to assure all of my fellow flower fans that I am still stopping to smell the ... mandevillas!

Pink Flower Photo: Powder-Puff-Tree at Longwood Gardens

Powderpuff Flower Photo by Aquariann
After the wicked way winter started, I was in desperate need of some flower therapy. Fortunately, First State Comic Con was only 20 minutes away from Longwood Gardens, so Ogre took me there for lunch last Sunday. We had a marvelous meal at The Terrace Café, then strolled around the conservatory before heading back to the comic convention.

I posted a profile photo at facebook.com/Aquariann, peering at this fluffy flower. It was my first time meeting this type of adorable blossom, so all I knew about it came from the plaque beside it that read: Scarlet Powder-Puff-Tree, Calliandra haematocephala, Bean Family, Bolivia. My friends were quick to point out that it was from a Mimosa tree, which is also a fun name to say.

Jamberry Giveaway: Snow and Ice Nail Art

EDIT: Giveaway is officially over. Congratulations to Amanda Stovall for submitting the randomly-chosen 568th entry. Please email me back within 72 hours to claim your prize.
Jamberry Giveaway

A week into winter in our new, very old house and the pipes have already frozen. It was a summer home for years, and our area rarely gets and stays this cold for so long. Even ice is forming on the Delaware Bay!

Just so my nails wouldn't feel left out in the cold, I chose a jamicure that fits into the rest of the cool surroundings. Then I skated into the Jeepers! It's January Giveaway Hop. I'm sharing half a nail art sheet of Snow and Ice, a Jamberry Junior design that retired several seasons ago. If you don't have a little girl and would rather use them yourself, I'm also including two of the largest Sapphire wraps that can be cut down into at least four adult-size thumb nail wraps.

If you haven't ever tried Jamberry nail wraps, read my Jamberry Nail Wraps Tutorial on my friend Katie's blog. If their product sticks with you, comment on this post and fill out the Rafflecopter to enter to win before January 17, 2018. Sharing the worldwide giveaway and following my social media accounts will also earn you extra entries and glittery glee from me. I will ship anywhere, but will be super sad if the winner's country won't allow nail stickers through customs so please check before entering.

After entering my giveaway, scroll below to find more giveaways by fellow participating bloggers. If you're hopping from there already and have a giveaway of your own to promote, I hope you'll add it to my Giveaway Chest Linky.

Thanks to The Kids Did It and The Mommy Island for hosting!
