Die Hard

     Been reading opposing media stories recently, some claiming "No, Die Hard is not a Christmas movie" and others claiming, "Yes, Die Hard is a Christmas movie."
     I never knew this was in doubt: Die Hard is a Christmas movie....about the best ever.

False crawl

     .....is not the same as False Bluff...not at all.  When a female turtle crawls out of the ocean onto a beach, but for some reason does not nest, that's a false crawl.
     This, then, is a false crawl at False Bluff.
     Or maybe not a false crawl at False Bluff.
     Well, it's definitely at False Bluff.  What's not known is whether it's a false crawl.
     (It's too near the end of the year for this kind of stuff.)

False Bluff TTG: Swamp lily, in bloom

     ...up close and personal. This hardy, non-invasive plant would grow in the sea if the tides would allow it. 
     Resistant to salt spray and beautiful. It's fast growing; makes a handsome clump along the edge of the beach or along a walkway. It will be another ornamental we'll be offering from the plant nursery.

Shades of green

      Definitely not something we'll be growing in the plant nursery, there are many species of orchids that just hang in the trees at False Bluff. 
     Here's one in bloom beside the canal just about at eye level as you go by in a boat.
