Nature must have a sense of humor! Never have I had the distinct pleasure to see an aloe plant bloom nor put it's arms in the air in celebration...Have you? Fall brings about many changes in plant behavior and this is definitely an unexpected surprise! The red, orange and yellow blooms are unlike any I have seen in my days and seem to be excited about the cooler temperatures. Another of nature's blessings as we head into a season of new beginnings / endings. Are you ready? Or not? Here we go anyway! (14 comments)

Did you? Well then, that is just dandy! Dandelion Duo with Persistent Parachutes is an eclectic piece of the Art Around The Corner collection strategically placed in areas of the St. George, Utah downtown area. This particular sculpture reminds me of childhood days when we'd try our best to blow all the willowwills off the dandelions at once, so our fondest wishes would come true. What did you wish for? .................................................................................

After contemplating whether to watch the first regular season game opener...Broncos vs Steelers or go fishing, my husband and I decided to record the game and GO FISHING! This may be our last opportunity of the season to sit on the lake and catch our limit!
Ok, so we catch our limit, then do we fry, bake or smoke the trout? Decisions, decisions...to be continued. Enjoy your Sunday, we are hoping for a sunny day on Panguitch Lake! (19 comments)
Cloudy, stormy or smoky skies create opportunities to capture a moment for all time. And though I've heard a camera is unable to truly portray what the human eye sees, I am honestly delighted with the results of this sunset! How often have you seen the sun as vibrant a color when day turns to night? This is a first for me. Happy Sunday, it is looking promising!
After a particularly productive day, I was blessed with this remarkable sunset. The sky above a pure blue while a storm raged just below the cloud cover; wispy vapor tendrils floating downward. The Washington County Fair Parade was the highlight of the morning, then spending the day with clients to view preferred homes came next. I was still smiling on the way home and then it brightened! Happy Sunday to you all! (9 comments)
Local wildfires combined with cloudy skies create unusual shapes and scenes as the eyes travel upward. I have a natural tendency to search for objects that morph quickly and disappear ever swifter, while anticipating the next elevated atmospheric display. The sun appears to be a winged creature swooping downward as the sky slowly gives way to night. Enjoy this beautiful Wednesday before you...I will if you will! (13 comments)

sunny southern utah: Confessions of a Blatant Bloom-a-holic. - 06/27/12 09:50 AM
Confessions of a Blatant Bloom-a-holic. Hello, my name is Wanda Kubat-Nerdin. I am a Bloom-a-holic. A Blatant Bloom-a-holic. Here is my testimony: Their blooming scent, vibrant colors and exquisiteness are intoxicating, then reflexively, I reach for the camera, forsaking all present thoughts to gain instant visual gratification time and time again.
I have lain in the gutter, bringing attention to myself, ants crawling in private places rather not discussed, dead leaves entwined in my hair, camera in hand, to shoot a maze of tulips along the roadside. Sweet success! Squatting in a storm to capture a blossom as the sky (15 comments)
Bring an offer, I’ll get you an answer! Potential buyers come in to a home while you’re conducting an open house and disclose that they have an agent. During the conversation the couple creates several scenarios, discussing closing costs, then asking if the seller would be willing to contribute. There are many answers to choose from here, but only one way to answer. The main thing to remember is to keep your emotions and feelings out of the answer. The correct answer is “Let me take the written offer to my seller and find out.” The key phrase is WRITTEN OFFER. Clients (13 comments)

Coming over the rise along Hiway 18 after my Broker Open House, the sky morphed into a multi-hued sunset that begged to be recognized. I pulled over grabbed the camera and took a photo. This scene inspires a person to literally stop and appreciate the moment, often encouraging loss of words to describe something so alive and in the moment...perfect for a Speechless Sunday (almost!) post! Happy Day to you all! (17 comments)
